Mr. Moon

(Source unknown)


This is another favourite which is often requested by parents/caregivers and children in all of my classes. I recently found out that it is sometimes sung in Girl Guides, as a round. Personally, I love singing it as a round. 

Mr. Moon
Mr. Moon, Mr. Moon, you're out too soon, 
The Sun is still in the sky.
Go back into your bed and cover up your head,
Until the day goes by.

T'was on a Summer's evening,
I walked the forest through
When suddenly, I heard it.
A soft and sweet cuckoo.
