combine that with a birthday celebration!

children around the room. As children become familiar with the song, they
can sing along.

The Birthday Train
Hop on board the Birthday
We’re goin’ for a ride
You can make the wheels go round and round
As on the tracks we glide
We all love the birthday train
'Cause we can make it go
So hop on board the birthday train,
It goes fast or slow
it goes chug, chug-a-lug
It goes chug, chug-a-lug chug-a-lug-a-chug,
Ridin’ on the Birthday Train
Is an easy thing to do
You can be the engineer,
I’ll ride the caboose
We can ride most anywhere
'Cause we don’t even need a track
And when our birthday ride is done
We’ll take the train on back
