Dinosaurs in Cars
This song is from the Plant a Little Seed CD and booklet, and has been one of my most popular songs with both teachers and children!

 

AGE: 3-7

PROPS: none

INSTRUCTIONS: This is a fun song, but be prepared to get some exercise! Have children stand in a circle, and follow the directions as you sing. Children will join in with you almost immediately except for the last part (changing the tire!). By the second time they will be doing it all!

THERE WERE FIVE DINOSAURS RIDIN’ IN CARS (pretend to be driving)
HAVIN’ A “WHEELY” GOOD TIME
THEY SAID, “STEP ON THE GAS” (step forward with one foot)
WE’LL GO REALLY FAST! (push one hand out in front of body)
AND THEY DID UNTIL ONE HAD A FLAT TIRE
CA-CHUNK, CA-CHUNK, CA-CHUNK, CA-CHUNK (roll hands unevenly as if rolling a flat tire)
WHOOSH——- (sink down to crouch position while making air sound)
AND HE SAID, “GO ON WITHOUT ME!” (cup hands around mouth and shout upward)

REPEAT WITH 4,3,2, AND ONE DINOSAUR

LAST TIME- speak the following in a rhythmic, almost rapping way:
AND HE SAID, “ I KNOW WHAT I’LL DO, I’LL CHANGE THE TIRE”
SO HE JACKED UP THE CAR (pretend to work a jack while making whoosh sound)
AND HE TOOK OFF THE FLAT (pretend to lift off heavy tire as you say “UH!”))
AND HE PUT ON THE SPARE (pretend to put on spare as you say, “UH!”)
AND HE SAID, “I’LL PICK UP MY FRIENDS”

THEN THERE WERE FIVE DINOSAURS, RIDIN’ IN CARS
(stand back up and repeat original motions)
HAVIN’ A WHEELY GOOD TIME
THEY SAID, “STEP ON THE GAS, WE’LL GO REALLY FAST”
AND THEY DID AND DOWN THE ROAD THEY WENT FLYIN’
SO LONG! (spoken with a wave)
