The 15 Best Silly Songs for Kids (And Parents) Who Have the Sillies

Spaghetti and rainbows > reality.

Listening to music can help kids develop language and memory skills, get them moving, and give them an opportunity for expression. For parents, an arsenal of silly kids songs can help dispel boredom, make long car rides go quicker, and maybe even convince kids that cleaning up or going to bed is fun. But we could all use a break from Baby Shark. These silly songs, including some classics and some more innovative songs, use rhyming, repetition, and downright ridiculous premises to entertain their singers. They’re easy to remember, and therefore easy to wield on days stuck inside, or whenever a meltdown seems imminent. The only downside to these silly kids songs is getting them out of your head.

I’m Bringing Home a Baby Bumble Bee

This classic silly song is interactive. Kids can use their hands to demonstrate holding, squishing, licking, wiping and wringing their bumble bee. 

I’m bringing home my baby bumble bee
Won’t my Mommy be so proud of me
I’m bringing home my baby bumble bee –
OUCH!! It stung me!!

I’m squishin’ up my baby bumble bee
Won’t my Mommy be so proud of me
I’m squishin’ up my baby bumble bee –
EW!! What a mess!!

  1. Do you plan on sending your kids back to school this fall?
    Yes. I trust that our schools are taking precautions.
    No. We don't feel that proper precautions are in place.
    I'm not sure yet. It depends on how things progress.

On Top of Spaghetti

By Tom Glazer 

On top of spaghetti all covered with cheese
I lost my poor meatball when somebody sneezed
It rolled off the table, it rolled on the floor
And then my poor meatball rolled out of the door
It rolled in the garden and under a bush
And then my poor meatball was nothing but mush.
The mush was as tasty as tasty could be,
And early next summer it grew to a tree.
The tree was all covered with beautiful moss
It grew great big meatballs and tomato sauce.
So if you eat spaghetti all covered with cheese,
Hold on to your meatball and don’t ever sneeze.

Tiny Tim the Turtle

There was a little turtle
His name was tiny Tim.
I put him in the bathtub
to see if he could swim.
He drank up all the water
he ate up all the soap.
Now he’s in the bathtub
with a bubble in his throat.
Bubble bubble bubble
bubble bubble bubble
bubble bubble bubble
bubble bubble POP!

Raindrops

By Joseph K Phillips

This song, which originally appeared on Barney lets kids imagine what a world made of candy would be like. At the end of each verse, kids open their mouths to mime receiving candy raindrops.

If all the raindrops
Were lemon drops and gumdrops
So what a rain that would be
Standing outside with my mouth open wide
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah

If all the raindrops
Were lemon drops and gumdrops
Oh, what a rain that would be

If all the snowflakes
Were candy bars and milkshakes
Oh, what a snow that would be
Standing outside with my mouth open wide
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah

If all the snowflakes
Were candy bars and milkshakes
Oh, what a snow that would be

If all the raindrops
Were lemon drops and gumdrops
Oh, what a rain that would be
Everybody
Standing outside with my mouth open wide
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah

If all the sunbeams
Were bubblegum and ice cream
Oh, what a sun that would be!
Standing outside, with my mouth open wide
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
If all the sunbeams
Were bubblegum and ice cream
Oh, what a sun that would be!

Underwear

By Wendy Kellogg

Underwear, underwear, send a pair, send a pair, I can wear
For I left mine lying, on a line a drying
And now I need them they’re not there
Underwear, underwear, get a pair, get a pair, anywhere
The bugle’s blowing, I must be going
For I’ve got to get there if I have to go there bare

Teddy Bear

Teddy Bear Teddy Bear turn around
Teddy Bear Teddy Bear touch the ground

Teddy Bear Teddy Bear bend down low
Teddy Bear Teddy Bear touch your toes

Teddy Bear Teddy Bear rest your head

Teddy Bear Teddy Bear turn out the lights

The Animals on the Farm

To the tune of wheels on the bus

The cows in the barn go moo moo moo,
moo moo moo
moo moo moo
The cows in the barn go moo moo moo
All day long

The ducks in the pond go quack quack quack
quack quack quack
quack quack quack
The ducks in the pond go quack quack quack
All day long!

The pigs in the pen go oink oink oink
oink oink oink
oink oink oink
The pigs in the barn go oink oink oink
All day long

The sheep in the field go baa baa baa
baa baa baa
baa baa baa
The sheep in the field go baa baa baa

Once I Caught a Fish

One, two, three, four, five
Once I caught a fish alive

six, seven, eight, nine, ten,
Then I let it go again.

Why did you let it go?
Because it bit my finger so.

Which finger did it bite?
The little finger on my right!

The Hand Song

Open them, shut them (open and shut fists)
Open them, shut them
Give a little clap

Open them, shut them
Open them, shut them
Lay them in your lap

Creep them, creep them,
creep them, creep them
Right up to your chin (walk hands up body to chin)
Open wide your little mouth but do not put them in

Roll them, roll them,
roll them, roll them
Roll them just like this

Shake them, shake them
Shake them, shake them
Blow a little kiss!

One Two Buckle My Shoe

One, two, buckle my shoe
Three, four, shut the door
Five, six, pick up sticks
Seven, eight, lay them straight
Nine, ten, begin again

Now everybody sing with me

One, two, buckle my shoe
Three, four, shut the door
Five, six, pick up sticks
Seven, eight, lay them straight
Nine, ten, begin again

Okay everybody, one more time

One, two, buckle my shoe
Three, four, shut the door
Five, six, pick up sticks
Seven, eight, lay them straight
Nine, ten, that’s the end

That’s the end I did it

Ten Little Fingers

I have ten little fingers
and they all belong to me
I can make them do things
Do you want to see?

I can close them up tight
I can open them wide
I can put them together
I can make them hide

I can make them fly high
I can make them go low
I can fold them like this and hold them just so

If You’re An Elephant and You Know It

To the tune of if you’re happy and you know it

If you’re an elephant and you know it stomp your feet
If you’re an elephant and you know it stomp your feet
If you’re an elephant and you know it and you really wanna show it
If you’re an elephant and you know it stomp your feet!

If you’re a monkey and you know it jump up and down
If you’re a monkey and you know it jump up and down
If you’re a monkey and you know it and you really wanna show it
If you’re a monkey and you know it jump up and down

If you’re a crocodile and you know it snap your jaws
If you’re a crocodile and you know it snap your jaws
If you’re a crocodile and you know it and you really wanna show it
If you’re a crocodile and you know it snap your jaws

If you’re a lion and you know it give a roar
If you’re a lion and you know it give a roar
If you’re a lion and you know it and you really wanna show it
If you’re a lion and you know it give a roar
