The Leeway Train
Margie La Bella


This song is available on Margie La Bella's Sing!

1. The Leeway train’s a-comin.’ -Chug chug chug.
The Leeway train’s a-comin.’ -Chug chug chug.
Nobody’s a-bummin’ -Chug chug chug.
When The Leeway train’s a-comin.’ Chug chug chug.
Now that you have got the knack, the Leeway train's a-comin' down the track.

(chorus)

2. The whistle is a-blowing; Wheeeoooheeee.
The whistle is a-blowing; Wheeeoooheeee.
Wouldn’t you be knowing’ when the whistle is a-blowing; Wheeeoooheeee.
Now that you have got the knack, the Leeway train's a-comin' down the track.

Chorus:
Round and round the wheels are turning
Round and round the engine’s burning
Round and round the wheels are turning
Get aboard the Leeway track.

3. The engine is a puffin’ -puff puff puff. The engine is a puffin’ -puff puff puff.
Trouble’s are a-nothin’ -with the engine all a-puffin -puff puff puff.
Now that you have got the knack, the Leeway train's a-comin' down the track.

(chorus)

spoken: “Uh-oh. Someone put sneezing powder in my lunch!
And what's going on with this train?”

4. Every one’s a-sneezin.' (Ah-choo!) Every one’s a-sneezin.’(Ah-choo!)
Puffin- and a-weezin.” (Ah-choo!) It must be the season. (Oh!)
Now that you have got the knack, the Leeway train's a-comin' down the track.


Benefits:
This song helps the kid's speech skills through making the appropriate sound effects.
Other uses:
It's easy to motion to. For the first verse, rub your hands back and forth. Pull an imaginary whistle for verse two. For the third verse, put your fingers together and touch your lips, then move them away from your mouth on the word puff. You may also do the same but position your hand perpendicular to your lips. And lastly, try not to sneeze too hard for the last verse! During the chorus roll your arms.
Variations:
Have the kids sit behind each other train style. Discus what the children will carry in each
“car.” Have the kids decide on a kind of place to ship for (like a music or pet store, or fast food place) and choose what they'll carry. This is good for categorization. Lastly, have the kids figure out where the train will stop and what they will see there (It will stop at the zoo and I'll see elephants etc.)
