Dr. Seuss Songs

It is Dr. Seuss' Birthday on March 2nd and to celebrate I have compiled some songs inspired by his wonderful books


Click on the picture for a copy of these songs!



Wocket in my Pocket  Sung to “Did you ever see a lassie”
Did you ever see a wocket that lived in my pocket?
Did you ever see a wocket that lived in my pocket?
He goes this way and that way, and this way and that way
Did you ever see a wocket that lived in my pocket?


Substitute the things in the book for the underlined words
Have children come up with other ideas like "there's a ghar in my car "or a "tamera in my camera"

Mulberry Street  Sung to “As I was walking down the street”
As I was walking down the street, down the street, down the street
A cart and horse  did I meet Heigh, Ho, Heigh, Ho, Heigh Ho
Rig a jig, jig and away we go, away we go
Away we go, rig a jig and away we go, Heigh, ho, heigh, ho, heigh, ho



Substitute the things Marco sees for the underlined words

The Cat in the Hat Song Sung to “Addam’s Family”
The cat in the hat (snap, snap)
The cat in the hat (snap, snap)
The cat in the hat, the cat in the hat 
The cat in the hat (snap, snap)
He causes so much fun
But when the fun is done
You will be the one
To send that cat away

If I Ran the Zoo
Down in the zoo with the beat in your feet
Tell me the animal that you'd like to meet
A lion, a lion, she wants to meet a lion


Keep a beat with stomping or pats and ask children to name an animal


We're Going to the Zoo
We're going to the zoo, zoo, zoo
How about you, you, you
You can come too, too, too
We're going to the zoo, zoo zoo

See the elephant with the long trunk swingin'
Great big ears and a long trunk swingin'
Snuffin' up peanuts with a long trunk swingin'
And we can stay all day!

See all the monkeys they're scritch-scritch scratchin'
Jumpin' around and scritch-scritch scratchin'
Hangin' by the long-tail scritch-scritch scratchin'
And we can stay all day!

There's a big black bear he's a huff-puff-a-puffin'
His coat's too heavy he's a huff-puff-a-puffin'
Don't get too close to its huff-puff-a-puffin'
Or you won't stay all day!

Well the seals in the pool all honk-honk-honkin'
Catchin' the fish and honk-honk-honkin'
Little tiny seals all honk-ho
nk-honkin'
And we can stay all day! 



The Animals in the Zoo Sung to "The Wheels on the Bus"
The snake in the zoo goes hiss hiss hiss
Hiss hiss hiss, Hiss hiss hiss
The snake in the zoo goes hiss hiss hiss
All day long
Subsitute other animals and sounds
