Whose Toes Are Those? (Symes)Whose toes are those
I Went Walking (Williams)

Hello everybody and how are you?
How are you, how are you,
Hello everybody and how are you?
How are you today?
Come on everybody and clap your hands
Come on everybody and stretch up high

Gilly Gilly Good Morning,
Good Morning, Good Morning
Gilly Gilly Gilly Good Morning,
Good Morning-- to you
Minnie Mack, Minnie Mack, Minnie Minnie Minnie Mack
Minnie Mack, Minnie Mack, Minnie morning
Minnie Mack, Minnie Mack, Minnie Minnie Minnie Mack
Minnie Mack, Minnie Mack, Minnie morning

Here is my book,
I open it wide
To see the pictures
That are inside!

One two three [toes, knees, shoulders]
Doggie got a flea
Doggie got a flea and now it’s on me!
[toes knees shoulders head shoulders knees toes]
It’s on my nose--
It’s on my toes--
It’s on my ear--
It’s over here!
It’s on my thumb--
It’s on my tum! (Sally Jaeger)

One little baby
Rocking in a tree
Two little babies
Splashing in the sea
Three little babies
Crawling on the floor
Four little babies                
Knocking at the door
Five little babies
Playing hide and seek
Don’t look now
Till I say peek!

Shake your shaker just like this
Just like this, just like this
Shake your shaker, just like this
Shaking, you and me.
Stretch up high . . .
Shake it low . . .
We’re going to Kentucky
We’re going to the fair
To see the senorita
With flowers in her hair
Shake it baby shake it
Shake it if you can
Shake it like a milkshake
And do the best you can
Shake it to the bottom
Shake it to the top
Turn around and ‘round and ‘round
Until you make it stop

If you're happy and you know it, shake your shaker (2x)
If you're happy and you know it, and you really want to show it
If you're happy and you know it, shake your shaker.
Shake them high, low, Behind our backs, fast, slow, in a circle...

As I was walking down the street (circle left)
Down the street, down the street
As I was walking down the street
Heigh ho, heigh ho, heigh ho
A mom and babe I chanced to meet (circle right)
Chanced to meet, chanced to meet
A mom and babe I chanced to meet
Heigh ho, heigh ho, heigh ho
Walk to center of circle
Rig a jig jig and away we go
Away we go, away we go
Back up
Rig a jig jig and away we go
Heigh ho, heigh ho, heigh ho

Above my head I see the sun,
See the sun, see the sun
Above my head I see the sun,
Spring is all around me.
Below my feet I see the grass,
See the grass, see the grass
Below my feet I see the grass,
Spring is all around me.
Repeat with…clouds, birds, bugs, worms…

I’m stretching very tall
And now I’m very small
Now tall
Now small
Now I’m a tiny ball

The elephant goes like this and that
He’s terrible big and he’s terrible fat
He has no fingers
He has no toes
But goodness gracious, what a nose!

The more we get together
Together, together
The more we get together
The happier we’ll be
‘Cause your friends are my friends
And my friends are your friends
The more we get together
The happier we’ll be!
    Sing—play—read!

Thanks for sharing stories and songs with me!
