2. Read along with the lyrics on the song cards to learn how to sing along with each song.

Riding On A Train Song For Preschoolers

chords: F Bb C

Instructions:
You are going to form a train with the children. You will be the leader. Choose one child to follow you and show the children how to line up with their hands on the shoulders of the child in front of them. Lead the train around the room. It’s fun to lead the train on a route around the tables and furniture in the room.

Intro:
Tell the children they will be riding on a train. Say “There are three sounds to make in this song: the whistle goes woo! woo!” Have the children repeat the sound. “The conductor says all aboard!” Have the children repeat it. “The bell goes ding, ding, ding!” Have the children repeat the bell sound.

Lyrics:
Riding on a train X2
Goin’ so fast,
Riding on a train
The whistle blows “woo, woo” X3
Riding on a train
Riding on a train X2
Goin’ so fast,
Riding on a train
The conductor says “All aboard!” X3
Riding on a train
Riding on a train X2
Goin’ so fast,
Riding on a train
The bell goes “ding, ding, ding!”X3
Riding on a train
(slower)
Now were goin’ up the hill
Riding on a train
Climbing up the hill
Riding on a train,
Now were at the top
Riding on a train
(faster)
Now were going down the hill
Riding on a train
The whistle blows “woo, woo” X3
Riding on a train
The conductor says “All aboard!” X3
Riding on a train
The bell goes “ding, ding, ding!” X3
Riding on a train
(slow down)
Now were coming to the station,
Riding on a train,
coming to the station
Riding on a train…..
