Imagination and Creativity in song - a silly game!

As I've said before, I don't work on the nursery floor. Every now and then though, I take a little break from the office and go on the floor to see what is going on.
When I go into a room the children always shout my name and run over to give me cuddles - which is lovely! Then I'll play a little game with them. Our favourite is (was) for me to say 'Ok, I'm going to sing you a song. Now though, they know the game and they will say ''Sing us a song!'
So, I will sing for e.g 'Twinkle twinkle'.
'Twinkle, twinkle little star
how I wonder what you are
Up above the world so high
like a < insert any word, for e.g pineapple/dinosaur/teapot/etc>
in the sky'
At which point the children all shout 'NO! YOU GOT IT WRONG!' Then they will tell me to listen while they sing the correct version. Sometimes they will sing it to each other and insert their own wrong word, loving the giggles they get from their peers!
