Favorite Songs for Kids

Parents rediscover the joys of classic kids movies, nursery rhymes and stories when they introduce them to their children -- and one site that can be a source of word and melody help and fun is over the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences Kids Pages where they have Sing-Along Midis and Lyrics to movies and musicals.

Remember Baby Mine from Dumbo?

Baby mine, don't you cry
Baby mine, dry your eyes
Rest your head close to my heart
Never to part, baby of mine

Little one when you play
Don't you mind what they say
Let those eyes sparkle and shine
Never a tear, baby of mine

And who can forget Hakuna Matata from The Lion King?

Hakuna Matata!
What a wonderful phrase
Hakuna Matata!
Ain't no passing craze

It means no worries
For the rest of your days
It's our problem-free philosophy
Hakuna Matata!

There's Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! (Mary Poppins), The Tigger Song (Winnie-the-Pooh) and even Kermit's It's Not Easy Being Green:

It's not that easy being green;
Having to spend each day the color of the leaves.
When I think it could be nicer being red, or yellow or gold...
or something much more colorful like that.

It's not easy being green.
It seems you blend in with so many other ord'nary things.
And people tend to pass you over 'cause you're
not standing out like flashy sparkles in the water
or stars in the sky.

But green's the color of Spring.
And green can be cool and friendly-like.
And green can be big like an ocean, or important like a mountain,
or tall like a tree.

When green is all there is to be
It could make you wonder why, but why wonder why?
Wonder, I am green and it'll do fine, it's beautiful!
And I think it's what I want to be.
*happy sigh*
