Birds

Rhyme: Two little blackbirds sitting on a hill
One named Jack and one named Jill.
Fly away, Jack! And fly away, Jill!
Come back, Jack! And come back, Jill!

Two little blackbirds sitting on a cloud
One named Soft and one named LOUD . . .

Two little blackbirds flying in the sky
One named Low and one named High. . .

Two little blackbirds sitting on a stick
One named Slow and one named Quick. . .

Rhyme:Pizza, pickle, pumpernickel
My little baby deserves a tickle! [tickle baby]
One for her nose, and one for her toes
And one for her belly where the hotdog goes!

Duck in the pond goes, “Quack, quack, quack…”
