Can you remember the lyrics to songs?

I just have to share a little gem I found on the internet recently 🙂

I am awful at remembering the lyrics to songs, whether it be an old favourite of mine or a nursery rhyme for Monkey.  The brain cells just do not store this kind of information!  So I had no hope when Monkey came hope from pre-school a while ago and started singing…..

Down in the Jungle where nobody goes……

What is that I asked?  Monkey just kept repeating the first line of this rhyme over and over again.  I’d never heard of it and realised that I either found the rest of the lyrics pretty sharpish or Monkey would drive me insane with the one liner.

Anyway, I googled the line that he knew and up popped BusSongs.Com – a website with over 2000 children’s nursery rhymes and songs listed.  Why had I not googled before!!!  You can either type in the song/rhyme title in the search bar, or there are category listings you can click on to.

Brilliant – I now have a wealth of information at the click of my mouse, no excuse for me anymore.  Monkey was thrilled when Mummy could actually sing back to him …..

There’s a great big gorilla washing his clothes
With a rub-a-dub here and a rub-a-dub there
This is the way he washes his clothes
Boom boodie, boom boodie, boogie woogie boo!
Boom boodie, boom boodie, boogie woogie boo!
Boom boodie, boom boodie, boogie woogie boo!

So if you’re like me and lyrics just don’t sink in, or your child comes home singing a song/rhyme you’ve never hard of before – then try 🙂

    That website looks fab and will be bookmarked for future use. Lyrics sink in with me, but not necessarily in the right order, so being able to search to check is a brill idea!

    I’m always googling songs when they come back from nursery with random lines and can’t remember the rest but I’ve never found a good site with so many songs on before. Will have a look at this one a bit more next week.

    I have a disturbing memory for song lyrics. I really am a source of useless information! This is handy for songs they sing at pre-school that you might not know though!

    That sounds great! I am always forgetting lyrics to nursery rhymes and end up making up something really stupid!

    Wow, how cool is that? I’m always remembering lyric to old songs and can never remember the tune or the rest of the words. So annoying LOL!

  9. What a GREAT idea – I am always making little bits up… and I bet I will find some songs I had forgotten about too!
