Dance_And_Sing_Along small

Dance and Sing Along

Stay At Home

Stay, stay, stay at home

Exercise that’s fun

Hop-along, Swing-along, Twirl-along, Sing-along,

Dance beneath the sun.

 

Dance, dance, dance at home

Dancing to a tune

Hop-along, Swing-along, Twirl-along, Sing-along,

Dance beneath the moon.

 

Stay, stay, stay at home

Write yourself a song

Hop-along, Swing-along, Twirl-along, Dance-along,

Come on and sing along.

Prompt:

Write new lyrics to a familiar song.

Can you guess the tune of this song?  Try singing along:

Row, row, row your boat

Gently down the stream

Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily

Life is but a dream.

Staying at home is a challenge — and there are lots of challenges asking for ideas and input and poetry and songs to help remind us and to help get us through.

What familiar song could you write new lyrics to — and perhaps even remind others to stay safe and stay home?
