As stated in the title, I'm looking for this set of songs that I remember using when I assisted dance classes many years ago, and probably danced to myself as a child.

"I learned a word in french today, this is a word that's called plie. All that it means is bend your knees, and turn your toes out if you please."

"Watch me kick nice and high, I can kick up to the sky. Watch me kick, nice and high, I can kick up to the sky."

"Tick tock, tick tock, listen to the happy clock. Tick tock tick tock, listen to the clock".

There were probably two to three more songs in this set, I cannot find information on it anywhere! It's perfect for preschool dance and creative movement, and I think of it all the time when I'm teaching, and would love to get my hands on it.

Can anyone help?!

My browser keeps freezing when I click on the sample, but I'm excited to have a listen whenever I can get it to play. Hoping those are my songs :)

Thanks!

the first link angelnmozn posted has the "I learned a word in french today" song. It is "Plie and Releve" track number 1

That is fantastic, exactly what I was looking for, and even the same singer, which is interesting. Thank you very much!

Thanks for those links above, as I think I finally found the song I used decades ago: "I'm learning to speak French in dancing school." It has a can-can music background and cute lyrics - "when teacher says tout de suite, I shake the lead out of my feet."

Isn't that exciting?? I didn't think I would ever find these songs again! I've already bought and downloaded two of the albums :)
