Really Silly Songs - Total Song Pack

A really silly song about the benefits of really silly songs. The chorus (which is very easy to learn) works as a counterpoint with the verse so two groups of children (or 2 soloists) can produce a really silly song in almost perfect harmony. Please watch the video to get the idea. The pack comes with vocal and backing track mp3s plus lyrics and full sheet music score for 2 parts plus piano

Gee Up Gee Up We're Going For A Ride - Preschool Song, Video & Sheet Music

(0)
A really popular little action song which I wrote for little children. At nursery school they have to “mount your horses” and then just gallop about until “Off the horse we drop” where they usually hurl themselves to the ground and await the next “mount your horses” command. I’ve always maintained that this is the best song to make little children drop off quickly!!!
