Roly Poly
To the tune of "Frere Jacques:"
Roly poly, roly poly
Up, up, up.
Up, up, up.
Roly roly poly. Roly, roly, poly.
Down, down, down.
Down, down, down.

My Dog Rags
I have a dog, his name is Rags
He eats so much his belly sags
His ears flip flop, and his tail wig wags
And when he walks he goes zig-zag

Chorus:
He goes flip flop, wig wag, zig zag;
He goes flip flop, wig wag, zig zag;
He goes flip flop, wig wag, zig zag;
I love Rags and he loves me.

My dog Rags, he loves to play.
He rolls around in the mud all day.
I whistle and I whistle but he won’t obey.
He always runs the other way!
Chorus
