Fun Potty Time Sing-Along Songs and Lyrics
I’m So Happy (Tune of “Oh My Darling”)
I’m so happy, I’m so happy,
I’m so happy, when I’m dry!
I am going to the potty,
Every hour, I will try.
Potty Time (Tune “London Bridge”)
Look at me, it’s potty time.
Potty time, potty time.
Look at me, it’s potty time,
Let’s go potty!
I Can Potty (Tune “Are you Sleeping”)
I’ can potty, I’ can potty,
Mom and Dad, Mom and Dad,
Felt the pee-pee coming,
So I started running,
To the pot, To the pot.
