Another couple I thought of:

London Bridge Is Falling Down
The Ants Go Marching One By One ... (just have them march around and
around while they chant, and with any luck you'll tire them out.)

My father used to sing that to us as:

Fourteen men in a boardinghouse bed
Roll over, roll over
They all rolled over when anyone said
Roll over, roll over
One man thought it would be a great joke
Not to roll over when anyone spoke
In the confusion he got his neck broke
Roll over, roll over

Thirteen men in a boardinghouse bed ...

I can see from the elementary-school reading assignment thread that this
one won't go over big in day cares nowadays.

That wasn't the way I sang it. It was (because I had four children)

There were 4 in the bed, and the little one said
Roll over, Roll Over
And they all rolled over, and one fell out.

There were 3 in the bed, and the little one said
Roll Over, Roll Over
And they all rolled over and one fell out

There were two in the bed and the little one said
Roll Over, Roll Over
And they all rolled over and one fell out.

There was one in the bed and the little one said
Good Night

Our little one says *I'm lonely, please come back.*
