Bouncy Mouse
from King County Library system
Boing, boing, squeak. Boing, boing, squeak
A bouncing mouse is in my house. He’s been there for a week.
He came from out of nowhere, and quickly settled in.
I’m thankful that he came alone. I heard he had a twin.
He bounces in the kitchen. He bounces in the den.
He bounces in the living room. Look, there he goes again.
That mouse just keeps on bouncing every minute of the day.
He bouncy, bouncy, bounces But he does not bounce away.

Hickory Dickory Dock
Hickory Dickory Dock Swing arms
The mouse ran up the clock. Run fingers up body to top of head
The clock struck one. Clap
The mouse ran down. Run fingers down body
Hickory Dickory Dock. Swing arms

Repeat with:
Clock struck two…Mouse said BOO
Clock struck three… Mouse said Wee
Clock struck four…Mouse said no more!

Hurry Scurry Little Mouse
from Mel’s Desk
Hurry scurry little mouse tickle each body part
Starts down at your toes Touch baby’s toes

Hurry scurry little mouse
Past your knees he goes Walk fingers to baby’s knees

Hurry scurry little mouse
Past where your tummy is Tickle baby’s tummy

Hurry scurry little mouse
Gives you a mousy kiss Touch baby’s lips then give a kiss!

I Had A Little Mouse
from Mel’s Desk
I had a little mouse that never would eat his cheese
All he ever wanted to do was bounce upon my knees
Bounce upon my knees, bounce upon my knees
All he ever wanted to do was bounce upon my knees

Little Mice are Creeping
from King County Library System
The little mice are creeping, creeping, creeping;
The little mice are creeping through the house.

The little mice are sleeping, sleeping, sleeping;
The little mice are sleeping in the house.
Shhhhh… (finger to lips)

The old gray cat comes creeping, creeping, creeping;
The old gray cat comes creeping through the house.

The little mice all scamper, scamper, scamper;
The little mice all scamper through the house.

Little Tiny Baby Mousy
Start at baby’s hand, walk fingers up arm tickle baby on last line.
Little tiny baby mousey,
From the barny to the housey,
In the pantry, under the self,
Found some cheese and helped himself!
