Here in the “Great Northwest” (specifically, Seattle, Washington), summer is finally here! So let’s celebrate with a trip in the dump truck! This song is easy to sing, and you can add your own verses. What other jobs might a dump truck do during a busy day? (Note that the second half of each verse has a simple hand motion )

Dump Truck Song

Hop into my dump truck, you can ride along with me

We’ve got a lot of work to do and we can work and sing

We’re singin’ la, la, la, la, la, la, la,

    (clap on “la’s”)

We’re singin’ la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la

 

If it starts to rain we’ll turn the windshield wipers on

We’ll listen to their rhythm and we’ll join their little song

As they go, swish, swish, swish, swish, swish, swish, swish, 

    (hands make back and forth wiper motions)

Swish, swish, swish, swish, swish, swish, swish,

 

Old MacDonald needs a load of dirt out at the farm

And when we’re finished we can pet the piggies in the barn

As they say, oink, oink, oink, oink, oink, oink, oink, 

    (make ASL sign for pig: hand under chin, fingers wiggle)

As they say, oink, oink, oink, oink, oink, oink, oink,

 

If it’s nice we’ll take a load of sand up to the park

We’ll dump it in the sandbox and we’ll play until it’s dark

And we can dig and pour, and dig and pour 

    (scoop hands down and up, then flip cupped hands to “dump”)

And we can dig and pour, and dig and pour some more

 

Hop into my dump truck it’s been quite a busy day

The sun is down, the stars are out

and you can hear them say, “It’s time to go to sleep, 

    (rest head on hands)

it’s time to go to sleep, It’s time to go to sleep”

 

Hop up in my dump truck you can ride along with me

We’ve got a lot of work to do and we can work and sing

We’re singin’ la, la, la, la, la, la, la,

    (clap on “la’s”)

We’re singin’,  la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
