Song: Over in the Meadow

This is a fun traditional song to sing with young children.  Different versions abound - here is my favorite. Over in the Meadow

Over in the meadow In a pond in the sun, Lived an old mother duck And her little duck one, “Quack!” said the mother, “I Quack!” said the one, And they quacked and were happy In the pond in the sun.

Over in the meadow In a stream so blue, Lived an old mother fish And her little fish two, “Swim!” said the mother, “We swim!” said the two, And they swam and were happy In the stream so blue.

Over in the meadow In a nest in the tree, Lived an old mother bird And her birdies three, “Sing!” said the mother “We sing!” said the three, And they sang and were happy In the nest in the tree.

Over in the meadow On a rock by the shore, Lived an old mother frog And her little frogs four, “Jump!” said the mother, “We jump!” said the four, And they jumped and were happy On the rock by the shore.

Over in the meadow In a big beehive, Lived an old mother bee And little bees five, “Buzz!” said the mother, “We buzz!” said the five, And they buzzed and were happy In the big beehive.
