Here is a list of the Top  5 Most Popular Kid’s Songs and Lyrics  {in no particular oder}

Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes Lyrics 
Head, shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes
Head, shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes

Head, shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes
(Repeat, getting faster each time)

Old MacDonald
Old MacDonald had a farm, E I E I O,
And on his farm he had some chicks, E I E I O.
With a chick chick here and a chick chick there,
Here a chick, there a chick, ev’rywhere a chick chick.
Old MacDonald had a farm, E I E I O.
(Repeat changing animals and sounds: cow, pig, geese, horse, mule, duck)

If Your’e Happy and You Know It 
If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands.
(clap clap)
If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands.
(clap clap)
If you’re happy and you know it then your face will surely show it.
If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands.
(clap clap)
(Repeat changing actions: stomp your feet,  nod your head, shout “Hooray”, do all four)

The Wheels on the Bus Go Round and Round
The Wheels on the Bus
go ’round and ’round,
’round and ’round,
’round and ’round.
The wheels on the bus
go ’round and ’round
all the way to school.
Other Verses:
-The wipers on the bus go swish, swish, swish.
-The driver on the bus says, “Move on back!”-The babies on the bus say, “Wah, wah, wah.”

Itsy Bitsy Spider 
The itsy bitsy spider
Climbed up the waterspout
Down came the rain
And washed the spider out.
Out came the sun
And dried up all the rain
So the itsy-bitsy spider
Climbed up the spout again!

    Universal list! I have also found that most nursery rhymes (like Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, or Baa Baa Black Sheep, or Mary Had A Little Lamb) to be really popular too. I remember singing them when I was a child living in Africa, then Europe and North America; my nephews and niece now sing them…

    My 2 year old son LOVES head and shoulders and the wheels on the bus. I think we sing those songs over 20 times each every day:)

    April 2- I was in a Cub pack some years ago and I was in charge of games and singing for part of our meetings. It’s refreshing to know that these songs have stood the test of time. “Itsy , Bitsy Spider’ can be lots of fun when will done with hand gestures. We had many good sing songs using most of these old songs.–el03ro

    this is great…when my son was brand new and we figured out that singing calmed him, it was really frustrating realizing that i didn’t know any kid songs. the ABS’s was my go-to lullaby for a long time because i simply didn’t know anything else haha

    Those are definitely the most popular songs in our house for the last few years, especially the wheels on the bus. I can probably sing about anything and everything using the wheels on the bus as my guide.

    It’s so many years ago since I needed to sing to my children, thank goodness. I think they went to sleep out of protest! I couldn’t sing a tune if my life depended on it:-(
