This is an all-time favourite performed by children’s singing legend Raffi. You can make up your own giggle-worthy rhymes and encourage your kiddos to do the same. Here are the “Down by the Bay” lyrics:

Where the watermelons grow
Back to my home
I dare not go
For if I do
My mother will say
Did you ever see a goat
