The itsy bitsy spider crawled up the water spout.
Down came the rain, and washed the spider out.
Out came the sun, and dried up all the rain,
and the itsy bitsy spider went up the spout again!
A simple arrangement of the famous Christmas song for younger voices (played twice through). Download includes lyrics, vocal MP3 track, instrumental MP3 backing track, piano score.
At a pace suitable for very young singers, with an instrumental backing track that will not overpower their young voices. (However, this arrangement will certainly be enjoyed by older children and adults too!)
Arranged by early years and primary music specialist, Fran Carpenter.
Happy Christmas singing!
