about

Little Minstrels New Zealand

I love music - I love kids! Little Minstrels all began with a few classes at a preschool in 2005. Since then it has grown into my part-time job and full-time passion, developing my own teaching programme and writing and recording songs to suit. These songs have stood the test of time and have been loved by the preschoolers I teach. I hope your chidren enjoy them too! ... more

Track Name: Musical Alphabet
C is for cat sitting in the sun,
D is for dog chasing sticks,
E, an elephant walking slow,
F is for fun, fun, fun!
G is for girl spinning round and round,
spinning round and round, spinning round and round,
A, an albatross flying up so high,
B is for boat on the C.

Let's sing the musical alphabet,
Let's sing it twice till we know it,
Singing along to our alphabet song,
We're having fun and we know it.
Track Name: If You're Happy
If you're happy and you know it tap your sticks,
If you're happy and you know it tap your sticks,
If you're happy and you know it and you really want to show it,
If you're happy and you know it tap your sticks,

If you're sad and you know it scrape your sticks....

If you're angry and you know it drum the floor...

If you're happy and you know it tap your sticks...
Track Name: Play and Play
Come on and play and play on a a sunny day,
Come on and play and play and STOP!
Track Name: 7 Bright Stars
1 bright star, (hold up 1 finger)
Sparkling high, (sparkle your 1 finger above your head)
Peeking through the clouds in the big black sky, (both hands in front of your face, peek around)
Winter’s coming closer, (shiver)
What can I see? (shrug shoulder, open out hands)
2 bright stars are shining on me! (Hold up 2 fingers, point to yourself)

…….7 bright stars it’s Matariki.
Track Name: I Bought Me a Cat
I bought me a cat and the cat pleased me.
I fed my cat under yonder tree.
Cat goes fiddle-dee-dee.

I bought me a hen and the hen pleased me.
I fed my hen under yonder tree.
Hen goes chimmy-chuck, chimmy-chuck
Cat goes fiddle-dee-dee.

I bought me a mouse and the mouse pleased me.
I fed my mouse under yonder tree.
Mouse goes creep, creep,
Hen goes chimmy-chuck, chimmy-chuck
Cat goes fiddle-dee-dee.

I bought me a horse and the horse pleased me.
I fed my horse under yonder tree.
Horse goes clip-clop
Mouse goes creep, creep,
Hen goes chimmy-chuck, chimmy-chuck
Cat goes fiddle-dee-dee.

I bought me a cow and the cow pleased me.
I fed my cow under yonder tree.
Cow goes clunk, clunk,
Horse goes clip-clop
Mouse goes creep, creep,
Hen goes chimmy-chuck, chimmy-chuck
Cat goes fiddle-dee-dee.
