She'll Be Coming Round the Mountain

She’ll be coming round the mountain when she comes. She’ll be coming round the mountain when she comes. And she’ll be whistling like a train as she speeds across the plain and stops us all from feeling glum! This high-kicking romp introduces a wild frontier babe who is determined to yell out the favourite rhyme any which way she can, whether she’s dancing on rooftops or painting the whole town plum. Who knew there were so many ways to sing a song? Featuring a madcap heroine, plenty of crazy antics and an irresistible refrain to repeat, this galloping whirlwind of a rhyme will have everyone shouting ‘yee-hah!’
