Let's Go Riding

Hey, I got an idea
Let's go riding on a motorcycle
Put your helmet on and hold onto those handlebars
Okay...here we go
Let's go riding on a motorcycle (3 times)
Vroom

Let's go riding on a truck
Climb into the cab
What did you say you're carrying in the back of this truck?
200 pigs to market! Phew wee!
All right put your hands on the wheel and let's go
Let's go riding on a truck (3 times)
Hmmmmmm

Let's go riding up in the sky and ride on a jet plane!
You're a pilot
So look out the window and down on the runway
‘Cause we're getting' ready to go!
Got your seat belt on? Start your engines!
We're riding on a jet plane (3 times)
Sssshhhhhhsssssshhhhhh

Let's go riding on a fire engine
Got your fire hat on?
Well, put it on! Turn on the siren!
We're riding on a fire engine (3 times)
Whrrrrrrrr

Let's go riding on a horse
A big brown horse
His name is Jake
He's a good horse
Go ahead, pet him on the side of the head
Now hold on to the reins
‘Cause here we go...
What's the matter, Jake? I said here we go!
Come on boy, I said here we
Goooooooooo
We're riding on a horse (2 times)
We're riding on a big brown horse
Yippee!
Slow down, slow down, Jake slow down
Jaaake, slow down!
