Song Words

Here is a selection of words to some of the less well-known songs from our classes including our own original songs. It is by no means exhaustive: there are lots more songs to enjoy at Jiggle & Jam! But we hope these song words will help you enjoy singing with your little one both at home and at your J&J class.

(to the tune of "Skip to my Lou")
Pop a little pancake into the pan, pop a little pancake into the pan, pop a little pancake into the pan,
that's for our dinner tonight!

Toss a little pancake into the air...

Sprinkle on some sugar with a shake, shake, shake...

Squeeze a little lemon with a squeeze, squeeze, squeeze...

Pop it in your tummy with a yum, yum, yum...
