Grand Old Duke of York

This traditional nursery rhyme is a fun lap song for active babies and toddlers. I love this illustration by Steve Morrison. His blog is full of sweet and playful illustrations for kids.

During music time, we sung this song using a big stretchy band. We stood in a circle and moved up and down with the song. A parachute would also work well.

The grand old duke of york,
He had ten thousand men,
He marched them up to the top of the hill,
And marched them down again.

And when they’re up, they’re up
And when they’re down, they’re down
And when they’re only halfway there,
They’re neither up nor down.

The Grand Old Duke of York is from the Playtime Music with Friends collection.
