Royalty Songs


The Grand Old Duke Of York,
He had Ten thousand men,
He marched them UP the hill,
He marched them DOWN again.
And when their UP their UP,
And when their DOWN, their DOWN,
But when their only HALF WAY UP,
They’re neither UP nor DOWN!

(instruct the children to stand up when they hear the word up and sit down when they hear the word down, and crouch when they hear the statement half-way up, doing it with them will help them to get what you want them to do.) Also can repeat it several times, faster and faster, or slower, and slower!


Act out Old King Cole. Have children take turns being the king, the fiddlers, etc.
