Song: (Tune: Shortnin’ Bread)
Mama’s little baby loves bouncin’, bouncin’
Mama’s little baby loves bouncin’ round.
Mama’s little baby loves bouncin’, bouncin’
Mama’s little baby loves bouncin’ round.

Lean to the left, lean to the right,
Now hug that baby nice and tight.
Lean to the left, lean to the right,
Now hug that baby nice and tight.

Rhyme: Hurry, scurry little mouse
Stars down at your toes.
Hurry, scurry little mouse
Past your knees he goes.
Hurry, scurry little mouse
Past where your tummy is.
Hurry, scurry little mouse
Gives you a mousy kiss.

The big clock goes ding-dong, ding-dong, ding-dong (swing back front to back)
