February 9

Sing a Song

Snow Sledding
(Tune: "Mary had a Little Lamb")

Snow piled up will make a hill,
make a hill, make a hill
Snow piled up will make a hill
for sliding in the yard.

We rolled it up in great big balls,
great big balls, great big balls.
We rolled it up in great big balls,
and pound it 'till it's hard.

Though other children call to us,
call to us, call to us.
Though other children call to us
to take our sleds outside.

We don't go out but stay right home,
stay right home, stay right home.
We don't go out but stay right home,
and slide and slide and slide.
