Have you ever focused on taxis as your preschool theme? Perhaps you focused on cab drivers as part of your theme of community helpers, or occupations? Or maybe it was a book that spurred your child’s interest in taxis. Regardless of the reason, it can be tricky to find good songs on this topic. That’s why I created this new preschool song about taxis.
Tips for singing the Taxi Song
I like to start this song by pretending to look for a taxi, then pointing and exclaiming, “I see a taxi!” At this point, I launch into the song. After singing the song once, I will pause and say, “I think we should go somewhere else now. I know, let’s go to the airport. That means we need to look for another taxi. Oh, there one is!”
Depending on your children’s age and the size of your group, you may be able to let your children choose the destinations.
*As this is an original song, please be sure to include my name as the songwriter any time you share this song.
The Taxi Song
By: S. J. Little
Tune: The Wheels on the Bus
Taxi, taxi, wait for me, wait for me, wait for me.
Taxi, taxi, wait for me. I need to go to town.
“Town” can be changed to other destinations based on your children’s interests.
My favourite destinations include:
- The airport
- The zoo
- The store
Other destinations could be:
- The hospital
The actions for the taxi song are simple and fun.
- Taxi, taxi, wait for me – wave your arms above your head as though trying to catch the attention of a taxi driver
- I need to go to town – point to self, then point in the direction of “town”
