This is an all-time favourite performed by children's singing legend Raffi. You can make up your own giggle-worthy rhymes and encourage your kiddos to do the same. Here are the "Down by the Bay" lyrics:

Down by the bay Where the watermelons grow Back to my home I dare not go For if I do My mother will say Did you ever see a baboon Holding a balloon

Down by the bay Where the watermelons grow Back to my home I dare not go For if I do My mother will say Did you ever see a whale With a polka-dot tail

Down by the bay Where the watermelons grow Back to my home I dare not go For if I do My mother will say Did you ever see a pig Wearing a wig

Down by the bay Where the watermelons grow Back to my home I dare not go For if I do My mother will say Did you ever see a goat Standing in a boat

Down by the bay Where the watermelons grow Back to my home I dare not go For if I do My mother will say Did you ever see a llama Wearing pajamas

Down by the bay...
