My little red wagon

It is such a lovely day in Sydney.

Baby SOH and I are sitting on our back porch painting. 

I started singing Jolting up and down in my little red wagon.

I have sung that song in music class for many years and the children love it. 

It has that lovely repeated line “Wont you be my darling”. 

Jolting up and down in my little red wagon,
Jolting up and down in my little red wagon,
Jolting up and down in my little red wagon,
Wont you be my darling.

SNAP!  Children love the snap and clapping their hands loudly, and talking about a broken wheel.  Change of tempo!

Then we talk about who is going to fix it.  Daddy, Mumma, Pa, Granny and on it goes.

One wheel’s off and the axle’s dragging,
One wheel’s off and the axle’s dragging,
One wheel’s off and the axel’s dragging,
Wont you be my darling.

Daddy’s got a hammer and he will fix it,
Daddy’s got a hammer and he will fix it,
Daddy’s got a hammer and he will fix it,
Wont you be my darling.

Going to the party (or wherever) in my little red wagon,

Its fun talking about all the places we could go.

Where are you going?

What fun, love from Nannyjay

About nannyjay

I am an early childhood music specialist, with a passion for music, music for singing, music for children, classical music, contemporary, good quality folk recordings, moving to music that comes from a feeling within. Having recently become a grandmother, the months are flying past too quickly!! I have decided that I would like to record the musical journey Baby SOH and I will take together. Music enhances my own life, and I have seen the contribution music makes to family lives, and children's lives from their youngest days. I am also interested in the contribution music makes to family relationships. I love to sing myself, and so the Kodaly philosophy of music education sits very well with me. Zoltan Kodaly was a Hungarian music educator and composer, and believed that singing is the foundation for all music education. I will soon be attending the early childhood music seminar of the International Society of Music Educators in Beijing, China, which is very exciting. People from the world over meet to share the latest research in music for children 0 - 8 years. So the journey begins.
