Letter W Song Lyrics
W is for window – have a look outside
W is for water slide – so much fun to ride
W is for water – we need it to survive
W is for wheels – they help a car to drive
W is for wink – it’s when you shut one eye
W is for wings – they help a bird to fly
W is for west – the opposite of east
W is for waves – you catch them at the beach
W is for weather – is it cold or is it sunny?
W is for wallet – a place to keep your money
W is for Wednesday – in the middle of the week
W is for wool – have you ever shorn a sheep?
