For oodles of sing-along fun, these sites provide lyrics for all the classics (such as Twinkle, Twinkle or Muffin Man) as well as fun, new words for original piggy-back songs sung to familiar tunes.

Bookwakwala: Songs
*****
These original animated music videos celebrate all sorts of common experiences, such as moving to a new neighborhood, making an echo with a friend, eating with chopsticks or trying new things. The tunes are catchy and the lyrics are easy to understand: great fun for sing-alongs at the computer. Be sure to explore the rest of the site, including the musical games, animations and stories.

Everything Preschool: Preschool Songs
*****
Hundreds of song lyrics, both traditional and original, are categorized by topic, such as Farm Animal Songs, Sports Songs and even Popcorn Songs. Some of the lyrics are sung to well-known melodies, such as Old MacDonald, Pop Goes the Weasel or the Hokey Pokey. Others are lyrical finger plays without specific melodies. The rest of the site is chock full of preschool themes, lesson plans, crafts, and alphabet activities.

Mrs. Jones’ Room: Sing-Along Songs
*****
Mrs. Jones is a Pennsylvania kindergarten teacher with an amazing website. Her sing-along page starts with a list of recommended music sites, followed by a really long list of song lyrics. My favorites are the alphabet songs, with lyrics for all the letters as well as vowel and consonant sounds (consonant digraphs, long and short vowels, and consonant blends.) “Do you know the zipper man, the zipper man, the zipper man? Do you know the zipper man? He loves to zip and zip.”
