The wonderful children’s performer and singer/songwriter Raffi, has written a wonderful second verse that I love to sing whenever I get the chance:

EENSY WEENSY SPIDER
New Verse By Raffi, Michael Creber

Then the little spider
Began to weave her thread
Of gossamer and silk
She spun herself a bed
Round and round she went
Till all her work was done
And soon a magic web lay
Gleaming in the sun

**********************

You can find the song, here:

It is Track 3 of Raffi’s fantastic CD, “Let’s Play.”

**********************
EENSY WEENSY Tune makes an appearance in Read, Sing, Play ABC Sing-Along:

The Eensy-Weensy Spider climbed on the Letter U!

Sing the words of the song for the letter U  to the tune of “Eensy-Weensy Spider.”


Read, Sing, Play ABC Sing-Along
Words Adapted by Teddy Slater
Illustrated by Liisa Chauncy Guida

My Uncles’s Ukelele
(Lyrics by Teddy Slater, from book “ABC Sing-Along,” sing to the tune of “Eensy-Weensy Spider”)
My uncle’s ukelele
goes unka, plunka, doo.
Each night he strums it
underneath the moon.
Unka, plunka, doo,
unka, plunka, plunka, doo…
I hear Uncle’s happy tune
floating upstairs to my room.

The original lyrics, here:

Eensy-Weensy Spider
(Also known as “Itsy Bitsy Spider”)
Traditional Words and Tune

Eensy weensy spider
Went up the water spout
Down came the rain
And washed the spider out
Out came the sun and dried up all the rain
Then the eensy weensy spider
Went up the spout again.
