Song Lyrics

Number 1, Number 1
Now the song has just begun

With a rum tum taddle um
Old John Bradlelum
Hey what funny folk we'd be

Number 2, Number 2
The rooster crows cock-a-doodle-doodle-doo


Number 3, Number 3
I like you and you like me


Number 4, Number 4
Knock, knock, knock, knock at your door


Number 5, Number 5
5 buzzy bees buzzing in a hive
