“Incy-Wincy Spider” lyrics
1. The incy-wincy spider climbed up the waterspout
Down came the rain and washed the spider out
Out came the sun and dried up all the rain
And the incy-wincy spider climbed up the spout again
2. The incy-wincy spider climbed up the big tall tree
Down came the snow and made the spider freeze
Out came the sun and melted all the snow
So the incy-wincy spider had another go
3. The incy-wincy spider climbed in the bubble bath
Then came rubber duckie and made the spider laugh
Down came the water and washed him down the drain
So the incy-wincy spider climbed up the spout again
4. The incy-wincy spider climbed up without a stop
She spun a silky web right at the very top
She wove and she spun and when her web was done
The incy-wincy spider she rested in the sun
