SH Sounds Lyrics
Sh is for shampoo — for when you wash your hair
Sh is for shape — like a circle or a square
Sh is for sheep — you’ll find them on a farm
Sh is for shoulder — connected to your arm
Sh is for shovel — for digging in the dirt
Sh is for sharp — if you touch it, it will hurt
Sh is for shark — it’s quite a scary sight
Sh is for shadow — when you’re blocking out the light
Sh is for shirt — you can wear it with a suit
Sh is for shoe — like a sneaker or a boot
Sh is for shave — I have one every day
Sh is for shower — to clean the dirt away
