Valentine's Day Songs about Love

Love is Something If You Give It Away

This following song about love could occur at circle time in an early childhood setting, or with a group of loved ones: family and/or friends. With a penny in his/her hand, the leader will explain to the children that as the song is sung the penny must be passed around the circle. Once a child receives the penny, he/she immediately passes it along. This activity will correlate with the following song, "Love is Something If You Give it Away" by Malvina Reynolds. This version has been changed from love to happiness.

Love is something if you give it away...(repeat, until the penny is back in you hand)

Give it away, give it away

Love is something if you give it away

You end up having more.

It's just like having a magic penny

Hold it tight and you won't have any

Lend it, spend it, you'll have so many

They'll roll all over the floor, cause...

Valentine's Day Friendship Song

Sung to "Row, Row, Row, your boat" 


Love, Love, Love your Friends,

Love them all year long.

Especially on Valentine's Day,

As we sing this song!

Family Song

Another song about love which is great for young children to sing is about their family members. This song can be used for Mother's Day and Father's Day as well. Find a tune that you prefer for the following lyrics:

I love my mommy, yes I do.

I love my mommy, yes I do

I love my mommy, yes I DO!

I love my mommy, and she loves me too
