Our Favourite Fun Toddler Song

favourite fun toddler song

This interactive song for babies and toddlers (and even preschoolers) has gotten some pretty enthusiastic reactions every time we sing it, either at work with young ones or by myself with my munchkin.

The song seems to be a long-time nursery rhyme, and the actual name of it is “A Smooth Road to London Town”, but I’ve always referred to it as “Bumpy Road to London Town”. It must be because the bumpy is the most fun part that that’s what sticks in my mind.

Here are the lyrics for the version I know (although you’ll notice I sang the verses backwards, but it doesn’t really matter):

It’s a smooth road to London town, A smooth road to London town.
The road goes up and the road goes down,
It’s a bumpy road to London town.

And by and by we came to a dell, And there the road was not so swell.
Well, the road went up and the road went down,
It’s a bumpy road to London town.

It’s a bumpy road to London town, A bumpy road to London town.
The road goes up and the road goes down,
It’s a bumpy road to London town.

And by and by we came to a wood, And there the road was not so good.
Oh, the road went up and the road went down,
It’s a rough road to London town.

It’s a rough road to London town, A rough road to London town.
The road goes up and the road goes down,
It’s a rough road to London town.

Oh no! A pot hole!
