Spider on the Floor (Raffi Songs to Read)
Words and Music by Bill Russell
Illustrated by True Kelley
Raffi Songs to Read

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

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

THERE’S A SPIDER ON THE FLOOR on SingingGamesForChildren.com includes guitar chords, lyrics and a link to a video:

NOTE:  The tune for this song sounds a lot to me like IF YOU’RE HAPPY AND YOU KNOW IT.  In fact, you can use the same guitar chords to play them both.

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

There’s a spider on the floor, on the floor.
There’s a spider on the floor, on the floor.
Who could ask for any more
Than a spider on the floor?
There’s a spider on the floor, on the floor.

Now there’s a spider on my leg, on my leg.
There’s a spider on my leg, on my leg.
Oh, he’s really big!
This old spider on my leg.
Now there’s a spider on my leg, on my leg.

Now there’s a spider on my stomach, on my stomach.
There’s a spider on my stomach, on my stomach.
Oh, he’s just a dumb old lummock,
This old spider on my stomach.
Now there’s a spider on my stomach, on my stomach.

Now there’s a spider on my neck, on my neck.
Oh, there’s a spider on my neck, on my neck.
Oh, I’m gonna be a wreck,
I’ve got a spider on my neck.
There’s a spider on my neck, on my neck.

Now there’s a spider on my face, on my face.
Oh, the spider’s on my face, on my face.
Oh, what a big disgrace,
I’ve got a spider on my face.
There’s a spider on my face, on my face.

Now there’s a spider on my head, on my head.
Oh, the spider’s on my head, on my head.
Oh, I wish that I were dead,
I’ve got a spider on my head.
There’s a spider on my head, on my head.

But he jumps off…

There’s a spider on the floor, on the floor.
There’s a spider on the floor, on the floor.
Who could ask for any more
Than a spider on the floor?
There’s a spider on the floor, on the floor.

EVERYTHING GROWS
Words and Music by Raffi

Everything grows and grows
Babies do
Animals too
Everything grows

Everything grows and grows
Sisters do
Brothers too
Everything grows

A blade of grass, fingers and toes
Hair on my head, a red, red rose
Everything grows, anyone knows
That’s how it goes

Yes, everything grows and grows
Babies do
Animals too
Everything grows

Everything grows and grows
Sisters do
Brothers too
Everything grows

Food on the farm, fish in the sea
Birds in the air, leaves on the tree
Everything grows, anyone knows
That’s how it goes

Yes, everything grows and grows

That’s how it goes under the sun
That’s how it goes under the rain
Everything grows, anyone knows
That’s how it goes

Yes, everything grows and grows
Babies do
Animals too
Everything grows

Everything grows and grows
Sisters do
Brothers too
Everything grows

Mamas do and papas too
Everything grows
