Default Help: in dire need of songs for kids to practice can can't

Attention Fellow teachers
I'm desperately looking for simple (not too long or complex) songs for to download for free 8-11 kids to practice can/can't for ability.
Any ideas? I need them before next week.
Thanks a million!
TT

do a search on YouTube. There are a LOT of English teaching videos. I imagine you'll find a jingle, chant or something you can use.

Thanks for your suggestions mesmark. I actually need audio material more than anything. Should have specified that before.

There was an old song that went, "Anything you can do, I can do better; I can do anything better than you; No, you can't; Yes, I can..." I'm sorry but I don't know the name of the song.

That would be "Anything You Can Do" from the musical Annie Get Your Gun.

YouTube - Annie Get Your Gun - Anything You Can Do for a visual out of the movie and
YouTube - Anything You Can Do - Annie Get Your Gun
and this one is just the audio.
A gr8 and fun song for can and can't and thanks for asking about it because I forgot about it and will surely be doing a worksheet when I get there in my syllabis.
Good luck

Hiya, I did the song today and it was great. I downloaded it from youtube, let them watch it the first time, then gave them the work sheet , went thru it before playing again and reviewed it. It was gr8.
The worksheet:

Listen to the song :Anything you can do, I can do better and find out which of the following
words are not in it:

better – older – greater – higher – cheaper – shorter – softer – longer – faster

Anything you can do, I can do ………………………….
I can do anything …………………………. than you.
Anything you can be, I can be …………………………..
Sooner or later I’m …………………………. than you.
Any note you can reach, I can go …………………….
I can sing anything …………………………. than you.
Anything you can buy, I can buy ……………………….
I can buy anything …………………………. than you.
50 ¢ – 40 ¢ – 30 ¢ – 20 ¢ – huh, you can’t – yes, I can, yes, I can…
Anything you can say, I can say ……………………….
I can say anything …………………………. than you
Any note you can hold, I can hold …………………….
I can hold any note …………………………. than you.
Anything you can wear, I can wear ………………….
In what you wear, I look …………………………. than you
In my coat – in your dress – in my shoes – in your hat – no you can’t, yes I can…
Anything you can say, I can say ……………………….
I can say anything …………………………. than you.

Thanks again for all your suggestions. Anything you can do from Annie Get Your Gun, seems to be quite popular! I've solved my dilemma long ago though.
I think it would be good with teens and adults, not kids (at least not the ones I'm teaching.) I'll probably use it in the future, thanks again!

Some great suggestions! I remember singing a song Do Your ears hang low when I was a child at primary school which also contains can. Not sure how it would work with non-native children though but it has actions too which they should enjoy!
