Story Songs

  1. Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

    Twinkle twinkle little star
    how I wonder what you are
    up above the world so high
    like a diamond in the sky
    twinkle twinkle little star
    how I wonder what you are

  2. Deep in the Heart of Texas

    The stars at night are big and bright deep in the heart of Texas
    The prairie sky is wide and high
    deep in the heart of Texas
    The sage in bloom is like perfume
    deep in the heart of Texas
    Reminds me of the one I love
    deep in the heart of Texas
     

  3. Hey Diddle Diddle

    Hey diddle diddle
    the cat and the fiddle
    the cow jumped over the moon
    the little dog laughed to see such fun and the dish ran away with the spoon
