I Hear Thunder

This song features excellent loud/soft contrasts. It is sung to the tune of "Frere Jacques"


My preferred lyrics:
I hear thunder, I hear thunder
Oh so loud! Oh so loud! Shhhhhh!
And,
Pitter-patter raindrops, pitter-patter raindrops
Nice and soft; nice and soft.

Traditional lyrics:
I hear thunder, I hear thunder.
Hark don't you? Hark don't you?
Pitter, patter raindrops,
Pitter, patter raindrops,
I'm wet through; so are you.

I hear thunder, I hear thunder.
Hear it roar! Hear it roar!
Pitter, patter raindrops,
Pitter, patter raindrops,
I'm all wet! I'm all wet!

I see blue skies, I see blue skies,
Way up high, Way up high!
Hurry up the sunshine,
Hurry up the sunshine
We'll soon dry! We'll soon dry!


I usually sing this with drums
Bang loudly; try to encourage banging on the beat


Play softly; again, encourage playing on the beat or rhythm
