"DOnt cry for me Thomas Surname,

Chip, chip chip chip Chippenham,
Lay a little Chip for me
Chip, chip chip chip Chippenham,
Lay a little egg for me tea
We sing this on the way to my mum's in Chippenham - to the tune of chick, chick, chick, chick, chicken

And a recent one, to a silly made up tune
My name is <my name>
and I'm an amber gambler, amber gambler, amber gambler
My name is <my name>
and I'm an amber gambler, amber gambler, amber gambler
Amber Gambler I am
This one while driving and making it through amber lights in town.

I also sing the song that the wolf sings in the 3 little pigs short film at the end of Dumbo (I think it's Dumbo, anyone know?) when he's sitting on a rock and being a siren, lalalalaaaaa, that one, to dd and she giggles.

Hair washing song: (to tune of "gonna wash that man" from South Pacific)

Gonna wash those bubbles right out of your hair,
Gonna wash those bubbles right out of your hair,
Gonna wash those bubbles right out of your hair
And send them down the drain.

Tooth brushing song (tune of row row row your boat)

Brush brush brush your teeth
Brush them every day
Or they will all drop out
And you'll be sad that day

Nappy song (to Nancy Sinatra's Kinky Boots)

Everybody's talkin' 'bout your stinky bum
Stinky bum, stinky bum
(bum bum)

And when I was pregnant used to sing to the bump (to tune of "we're having a heatwave" )

I'm having a baby,
A tropical baby,
The temperature's rising, it's really surprising
I know that I can
Can can.

We sing a lot in our house

Its your fault your daddy left

Go to sleep
Go to sleep
Close your sweet little blue eyes
Go to sleep
Go to sleep
Go to sleep Cesca-bunny

To the tune of Edelweiss. I was sure it was a song I had made up for dd, until my Dad heard me singing it - apparently he had sung the same song to me to get me to sleep - it must have become lodged in my subconcious. (It made him cry)

XXXX you're a big boy, playing in the garden,
Rolling on the floor all covered in mud
Dirt on your face, big disgrace,
Trailing your crud all over the place...
WE will WE will wash you!
WE will WE will scrub you!
Has to be accompanied by volley of rhythmic thumps on sides of bath, and these days, ds on air guitar now that he is old enough to appreciate the majesty of vintage Queen.
Show tunes also a rich source of excreta-related nappy songs, LOL at yours marthamoo

katzguk Fri 26-Mar-04 13:47:36

thats a cool song will have to steal it for my DD she loves songs at bath time

popsycal Fri 26-Mar-04 13:53:52

a burping song from being tiny:

where is mr windy hiding?
where has he gone now?
come on mr windy
pop out and take a bow

another one - to accompanying the shaking of a baa-ing sheep

mr sheep he likes to sleep
he also likes to dance and leap
di de di de di de di de di de di de di

Chucking it down the loo...

(Balamory tune)
