Space Theme Songs

Well Old Dan Trucker has went off his rocker, I meant Rocket Ship, anyway enjoy!

Old Dan Trucker

By Vicky Manning

Old Dan Trucker flew rocket ships,

He flew to the moon on one of his trips.

He wore a spacesuit when on his flight.

We all watched him take off into the night.

Shout out goodbye to Old Dan Trucker,

Shout out goodbye to Old Dan Trucker,

Shout out goodbye to Old Dan Trucker,

Who left for the moon without his dinner.

Old Dan Trucker you’re not an astronaut,

Who can fly to the moon from a parking lot.

Old Dan Trucker what’s wrong with you?

We wish you luck and dinner too.

Shout out goodbye to old Dan Trucker,

Shout out goodbye to Old Dan Trucker,

Shout out goodbye to Old Dan Trucker,

Who left for the moon without his dinner.

Where is Moon man

By Vicky Manning

Where is Moon man? Where is Moon Man?

In the sky, way up high,

Getting a better look, getting a better look,

At Earth below, at Earth below.

Five Little Astronauts

By Vicky Manning

Five little astronauts are shooting towards the stars.

The first little astronaut lands on Mars.

The second little astronaut lands on Venus.

The third little astronaut lands on Uranus.

The fourth little astronaut trails a comet.

The fifth little astronaut flies home on his rocket.

Did you ever see an Alien Modeling Underpants?

By Vicky Manning

Did you ever see an alien, an alien, an alien?

Did you ever see an alien,

Modeling underpants?

With flowers

In colors

Or shapes

In capes?

Did you ever see an alien modeling underpants?

Did you ever see an alien, an alien, an alien?

Did you ever see an alien,

Sharing underpants?

With flowers

In colors.

Or shapes,

In capes?

Did you ever see alien sharing underpants?

The Aliens are Landing on Earth

 ( Sung to She’ll be Coming Around the Mountain)

By Vicky Manning

The Aliens are landing on the earth, here they come, here they come.

The Aliens are landing on the earth, here they come, here they come.

The Aliens are landing on the earth, they’re landing on the earth.

They’re landing on the earth here they come, here they come!

Will they be friendly or wrathful when they come, when they come?

Will they be friendly or wrathful when they come, when they come?

Will they be friendly or wrathful, when they land on earth?

Will they be friendly or wrathful, when they come, when they come?

The Aliens have landed on earth, oh my, oh my!

The Aliens have landed on earth, oh my, oh my!

The Aliens have landed on earth, their ship is opening.

The Aliens have landed on earth, oh my! Oh my!

The Aliens are signing I come in peace, come in peace.

The Aliens are signing I come in peace, come in peace.

The Aliens are signing I come in peace, their happy to be here.

The Aliens are signing I come in peace, come in peace.

We will all have a party under the stars, under the stars.

We will all have a party under the stars, under the stars.

We will all have a party; we will eat, drink and be merry.

We will all have a party under the stars, under the stars.

If you were an Alien

By Vicky Manning

If you were an Alien how would you sound?

If you were an Alien how would you sound?

If you were an Alien and could talk,

If you were an Alien and could talk,

If you were an Alien and could talk,

How would you sound?

If you were an Alien how would you walk?

If you were an Alien how would you walk?

If you were an Alien with two legs,

If you were an Alien with two legs,

If you were an Alien with two legs,

How would you walk?

If you were an Alien how would you eat?

If you were an Alien how would you eat?

If you were an Alien with a mouth,

If you were an Alien with a mouth,

If you were an Alien with a mouth,

How would you eat?

Little Star

By Vicky Manning

I’m a little star,

Floating in the sky.

I shine bright

For you throughout

The night.

When the sun comes

Up

I’m still here

Just

Turn off the sun

And I reappear!

LIFT OFF!

Have students squat with their space shuttle hats on.

After each number they raise up till in standing position before liftoff.

At liftoff have them jump as high as they can.

Story Play

The Lee County Library has a children’s program I wanted to share with my followers. Story Play is a program for very young children. The program starts with babies and they stay with us until they are three.

The difference between Story Time and Story Play is how we lead. Story play is around 45 minutes of fingerplays, songs, and interaction with the parents. We start the program with learning to socialize with others through playing.

As the children grow you will have to change out the learning toys. In our group we have babies that have been with us for three years! It is fun to watch them grow and learn with their parents guiding them through the songs we teach and the fingerplays.

To get your group started visit your local Women’s Hospital and ask if they will give out a brochure about your program. Most young mothers will be delighted to bring their babies to Story Play.
