Lyrics

Little Blue

Written By: Levity Beet

Little Blue

Chorus
I’m a little Blue, I’m a little blue, I’m a little blue penguin
I’m a little Blue, I’m a little blue, I’m a little flightless bird
Maybe can’t fly but you should see me dive like an arrow under water
I’m a little blue, catch a little fish, I’m a little blue-grey bird

Verse one
Why did the penguins cross the road?
They have their burrows on the other side
They’re so shy, they come home late at night
Late to bed but early to rise

Chorus

Repeat verse one

Chorus

The Wheels on the Bus they Don't go Round

Written By: Levity Beet

The wheels on the bus they don’t go round

The wheels on the bus they don’t go round
The wheels on the bus they don’t go round
The wheels on the bus they don’t go round
Because the bus has got flat tires

Jack it up, jack it up, squeak squeak squeak
Jack it up, jack it up, squeak squeak squeak
Jack it up, jack it up, squeak squeak squeak
We’ll fix those flat old tires

But the wheels on the bus they don’t go round…
Because the bus ran out of diesel
Fill it up, fill it up slosh slosh slosh…
We’ll fill it up with diesel

But the wheels on the bus they don’t go round…
Because the battery has gone flat
Charge it up, charge it up, charge it up…
We’ll put it on the charger

But the wheels on the bus they don’t go round…
Because the driver has gone home
Home for tea, home for tea, munch munch munch…
She’ll drive the bus tomorrow when the wheels go round
