Hhhhmmmmmm.....What Song Should We Sing Next?

We do a lot of singing in our house. Often my husband and I make up songs that add a fun musical accompaniment to everyday happenings. Mostly we like to stick to the classics though. Sometimes when the little guy and I are singing songs I draw a blank on what song we should sing next. He makes this adorable little "thinking" face where he puts one finger to his lip, looks off to the side, and says, "hhhmmmm". While I don't ever want to stop seeing this "thinking" face, I thought it'd be helpful to put together a list of songs so they are easily accessible.
Let me know if you need any lyrics!
