I Went To Town
I went to the town,
And whoo went with me?
I went up and down
But nobody could I see.
Some more nursery rhymes to enjoy
Up The Tall White Candlestick
Up the tall white candlestick
(Make left arm into candlestick)
Crept little Mousie Brown
(Two fingers of fight hand run up the candlestick)
Right to the top but he couldn't get down
(Fingers wiggle at top)
So he called to his Grandma
(Call through cupped hands)
But Grandma was in town
So he curled himself into a ball
And rolled himself right down
(Clench both fists and roly-poly them round each other)
