Old Lady Leary
Late last night, when we were all in bed,
Old Lady Leary hung a lantern in the shed
And when the cow kicked it over,
She winked her eye and said,
There’ll be a hot time in the old town tonight!
Fire! Fire! Fire!
Pour on water, pour on water!
Save my children, save my children!
Jump, lady, jump!
Motions: Repeat song, taking out italicized words one by one and only doing actions
Bed – hands to cheek like sleeping
Lantern – act like you are lighting a “candle”
Kicked – back kick like a cow
Winked – wink eye
Hot time – fan face with hands
Fire – flick both hands in front you
Pour on water – act like you are throwing water from a bucket on a fire
Save my children – hands on cheeks, looking one way and then the other way
Jump – jump
Huh! – lift one knee and pull both arms back
