Hey There / What are You Thankful For?
Click here for 1 page PRINTABLE version (opens in new window)

Children love hearing their names in songs! There are two different ways to use this one. I have recorded 3 versions of this song, so please read the notes below and use the one that fits your needs.

Version 1:
Use it to learn the full melody (you won’t want to actually play it for your class, because it has random children’s names in it)

Version 2:
You can play this version and sing along, as it leaves spaces for you to sing the children’s names. The third verse in this version also leaves the questions out so you can add your own.

Version 3: A Thanksgiving song.
As you insert each child’s name, that child can say what he or she is thankful for.

Note: Although I have tried to leave plenty of space on the recordings for children to think of and say an answer to the questions, I encourage you to sing the song without the recording so children can take as much time as they need (especially younger children). Either way, keep a steady beat by patting your thighs to keep a rhythm going.

Lyrics for Recorded Versions 1 and 2

Hey there (name) What’s your favorite color?
Hey there (name) What’s your favorite food to eat?
Hey there (name) What’s your favorite animal?
Hey there (name) What’s your favorite song to sing?


Hey there (name) What color is your hair ?
Hey there (name) What color are your eyes?
Hey there (name) What color are your shoes?
Hey there (name) What color do you like?


Hey there (add name and question)
Hey there (add name and question)
Hey there (add name and question)
Hey there (add name and question)

Lyrics for Version 3

Hey there (name) what are you thankful for (repeat 5 times for song)
