A nose is to blow
A nose is to sniff
A nose has holes
For sniffing with
Ears are found at the sides of your head
Are you wearing your ears today
Ears are to hear a story with
A mouth is to yawn
See all the teeth and the tongue inside
A mouth is to laugh
Ha-ha ! Ha-ha !
A tongue is to talk and to sing La-la !
Lips are to make very small for a kiss
Lips are to whistle and blow
Lips are to stretch very wide for a smile
And round when you mouth goes
Ho ! Ho ! Ho !
Feel how it makes your belly go
When you laugh
What about necks ?
A neck is to tickle
What about shoulders ?
Those are to wriggle
A back is to stretch so high and tall
A back is to curl up snug and small
Arms go up
Arms go down
Arms go reaching way out wide
Arms can rock you side by side
Hands are to hold and to pat
And clap !
Hands are to hide behind your back
Fingers and thumbs are for counting on
One, two, three, four, five…
Six, seven, eight, nine, ten…
Let’s find some toes
And count up those
And then let’s wiggle and waggle each one
Legs are for leaping and jumping and dancing
Legs are for kicking and skipping and hopping
Feet are for stomping and suddenly stopping !
Knees are to bend
So let’s all sit down
BUMP ! On our bottoms side by side
So here we are
And I’ll tell you again
Kisses are little
Smiles are wide
A HUG IS A BUNDLE WITH YOU INSIDE !
