Grand Old Duke Of York

The Grand Old Duke Of York, he had ten thousand men.

Everyone remembers this simple song from their childhood.

Our version sees Robin, Otto and Old MacDonald playing toy soldiers as they watch the Grand Old Duke of York march his solders up and down the toy hill.

We wanted this song to have a military feel but at the same time be light and fun which is why we have Otto and Old MacDonald playing musical instruments.

Many children have great fun performing actions as the song is played.

The actions are easy to learn.

Have the kids stand up on the lyric “And when they were up they were up” and then sit down again on “And when they were down they were down”.

You’ll be surprised at how much fun this can be as most very young children make mistakes and find it a real giggle.

Please Thumbs up, subscribe and comment as it really helps us and gives us the fuel to create more videos for you and your child.

Grand Old Duke Of York Lyrics

Oh, the grand old Duke of York,
He had ten thousand men,
He marched them up to the top of the hill,
And he marched them down again.

And when they were up they were up,
And when they were down they were down,
And when they were only half way up,
They were neither up or down.

Oh, the grand old Duke of York,
He had ten thousand men,
He marched them up to the top of the hill,
And he marched them down again.

And when they were up they were up,
And when they were down they were down,
And when they were only half way up,
They were neither up or down.
