Songs
Busy Fingers

This is the way my fingers stand,
Fingers stand, fingers stand,
This is the way my fingers stand
So early in the morning.
This is the way they dance about,
Dance about, dance about
This is the way they dance about
So early in the morning.
This is the way I fold my hands,
Fold my hands, fold my hands
This is the way I fold my hands,
So early in the morning.
This is the way they go to sleep,
Go to sleep, go to sleep
This is the way they go to sleep
So early in the morning.
Hands on Shoulders
Hands on shoulders, hands on knees,
Hands behind you if you please.
Touch your shoulders, now your nose,
Now your chin and now your toes.
Hands up high in the air,
Down at your sides and touch your hair.
Hands up high as before,
Now clap your hands--one, two, three, four.
Head, Shoulders, Knees, Toes
Head, shoulders, knees, and toes,
Knees and toes.
Head, shoulders, knees and toes,
Knees and toes,
And eyes and ears,
And mouth and nose.
Head, shoulders, knees, and toes,
Knees and toes.
My Hands
My hands upon my head I place.
On my shoulders, on my face,
At my waist and by my side,
Then behind me they will hide.
I will raise them way up high.
Let my fingers fly, fly, fly"
Roll them over 1 - 2 - 3
And see how quiet they can be!
Open, Shut Them
Open, shut them; open, shut them,
Give a little clap, clap, clap
Open, shut them; open, shut them,
Put them in your lap.
Creep them, creep them,
creep them, creep them;
Right up to your chin,
Open up your little mouth.
But do not let them in.
Open, shut them; open, shut them,
Give a little clap, clap, clap
Open, shut them; open, shut them,
Put them in your lap.

He went to the kennel, then there were none!
