I’m a Yellow Helicopter
I’m a yellow helicopter
Sitting on the ground.
These are my rotor-blades
Slowly turning round.
Faster now, and faster…
They’re spinning like a top.
Big strong blades
Twirling round and round
Lifting the helicopter
off the ground.
Up, down, forward, backward
There’s so much good a
Helicopter can do!
We love to hear from our Junior Pilots!
