Letter U Song Lyrics
U is in duck – it likes to use its beak
U is in Sunday – the first day of the week
U is in truck – it honks as it goes by
U is for umbrella – it keeps you nice and dry
U is in button – it’s shiny and it’s round
U is in jump – get your feet up off the ground!
U is in cup – you fill it with your drink
U is in skunk – it smells so bad it stinks
U is in run – it’s fun to run and play
U is in lunch – we eat it at midday
U is in sun – it rises every day
U is for up – let’s go up, up and away!
