Preschool Songs

If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands.
If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands.
If you’re happy and you know it, and you really want to show it,
If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands.

If you’re happy and you know it, jump up and down…
If you’re happy and you know it, stomp your feet…
If you’re happy and you know it, shout ‘hooray’!…

Can’t Wait to Celebrate

We clap our hands when we get together, (clap hands)
Clap our hands to celebrate.
Clap our hands when we get together,
My friends and I can hardly Waaaaaaiit…

Repeat with:
We stamp our feet….
We wave hello…..
We bounce up and down….
We clap our hands….

Goodbye, goodbye

Goodbye to all the boys, bye boys!

We had some fun and now we’re done
Goodbye, goodbye!
Had some fun and now were done,
Goodbye to all the wiggleworms, bye wiggleworms!

Bye everyone! See you! Goodbye!

Now It’s Time to Say Goodbye

Tune: “She’ll Be Comin’ Around the Mountain”

Clap your hands to the beat and wave during ‘goodbye’

Now it’s time to say goodbye to all our friends, “Goodbye!”
Now it’s time to say goodbye to all our friends, “Goodbye!”
Now it’s time to say goodbye,
Wave your hands,
Wink your eye,
Now it’s time to say goodbye to all our friends, “Goodbye!”
