Space rocket
[Sit with elbows close to body and hands held in front with tips of fingers touching to form a cone of a rocket.]

Inside a rocket ship,
Just enough room.
Here comes the countdown -
10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1
Zoo-o-o-o-o-o-om !

[Stand up and raise arms high with fingers still held together like rocket cone.]
Auto, auto
Auto, auto may I have a ride? [point to self]
Yes sir, yes sir, step inside. [nod head, motion toward you]
Pour in the water [pour motion with right hand]
Pump in the gas [Pour motion with left hand]
Chug away, chug away, but not too fast. [steering motion]
