Nursery Rhyme: Hip Hop Humpty  

(from Jack Hartmann)

 

Hip hop Humpty

Hip hop Humpty

Hip hop, Hip hop Humpty Dumpty!

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall

Humpty Dumpty had a great fall

All the King’s horses

And all the King’s men

Couldn’t put Humpty

Together AGAIN!

Hip hop Humpty

Hip hop Humpty

Hip hop, Hip hop Humpty Dumpty!

Action Song- Big, Bold and Brassy

(from Lah-Lah's Big Live Band)

 

Big, bold, and brassy

They’re cool, calm, and classy

Yeah, they’re big, 

bold, and brassy

I think he’s going to be sliding my way

He can blow higher

He can blow lower

He can blow faster

He can blow slower

 

But they’re big

Bold and brassy

They’re cool, calm, and classy

Yeah, they’re big, 

bold, and brassy

I think he’s going to be sliding my way
