    This is a song from the 70's but apparently is good for teaching action verbs in lower grades. I cannot find it - anyone here heard of it and know the name of the song?

    I don't know the name of the song, but the lyrics are:

    This is a song about Sammy
    His mother sent him out to buy bread
    But Sammy didn't feel like walking
    He wished he could fly (change verb each verse) instead
    And he said

    If was a bird (change noun to match verb) I could fly to the store
    Fly to the store
    Fly to the store
    If I was a bird I could fly to the store for my mother.

    The lyrics and tune must be on the internet somewhere.

    Hap Palmer used to sing his songs on the internet, so you could hear before buying.
