Flying Man Flying Man

Flying-Man, Flying-Man 
Flying-man, Flying-man, 
Up in the sky, 
Where are you going to,
Flying so high? 
Over the mountains 
And over the sea, 
Flying-man, Flying-man, 
Can't you take me? 

My Bicycle 

Have the children lie on their backs with theirlegs up 
One wheel, two wheels on the ground; 
My feet make the pedals go round and round. 
Handle bars help me steer so straight, 
Down the sidewalk, through the gate. 

I'm A Little Airplane 
Sing to : I'm A Little Teapot

I'm a little airplane
I can fly, 
Here is my throt-tle; 
Give me a try.
When I get all revved up 
Then I fly 
Off the run-way 
To the sky!
