I've been working on the railroad song lyrics

I've been working on the railroad All the livelong day I've been working on the railroad Just to pass the time away

Can't you hear the whistle blowing Rise up so early in the morn Can't you hear the captain shouting "Dinah, blow your horn!"

Dinah, won't you blow, Dinah, won't you blow, Dinah, won't you blow your horn? Dinah, won't you blow, Dinah, won't you blow, Dinah, won't you blow your horn?

Someone's in the kitchen with Dinah Someone's in the kitchen I know Someone's in the kitchen with Dinah Strumming on the old banjo!

Fee, fie, fiddle-e-i-o Fee, fie, fiddle-e-i-o-o-o-o Fee, fie, fiddle-e-i-o Strumming on the old banjo!

What can your child learn from it?

Your mini-travelers will get a chance to boost their rhythm and coordination while singing and clapping along. This song’s repetitive lyrics make it easy for kids to remember, helping them improve their memory skills. Plus, it’s an engaging way to introduce them to the concept of transportation history!

And it’s a great way to practice your kid’s English pronunciation.

Try using toy trains or even simple props like cardboard boxes to simulate a train while singing. Kids can take turns being the engineer, the conductor, and the passengers.

For an extra touch of realism, add some whistle sounds or even dress up like train engineers. It’s a fun way to really get into the spirit!

So grab your train ticket—musical adventure awaits!
