    We Go In and Out the Doors
    We jump in and out the front door,
    We jump in and out the front door,
    We jump in and out the front door,
    And make a doorbell sound.

    We hop in and out the back door,
    We hop in and out the back door,
    We hop in and out the back door,
    Bend down and touch the ground.

    We slide in and out the side door,
    We slide in and out the side door,
    We slide in and out the side door,
    And turn ourselves around.

    We jump in and out the front door,
    We hop in and out the back door,
    We slide in and out the side door,
    And sit ourselves right down.

    Elevator Song
    Oh, the city is big and the city is grand,
    and there are lots of tall buildings on a little piece of land.
    And we live way up on the 57th floor.
    And this is what we do when we go out the door.

    We take the elevator UP, take the elevator DOWN,
    take the elevator UP, take the elevator DOWN,
    take the elevator UP, take the elevator DOWN,
    and turn around.

    This is the Way We Build
    Sung to the tune of All Around the Mulberry Bush

    This is the way we cut the wood, cut the wood, cut the wood.
    This is the way we cut the wood, when we're building our barn.

    This is the way we...
    hammer the nails...
    stack the bricks...
    paint the walls...
    put up the roof...
