Show Me If You Can
Sung to: "In and Out The Window"

Where is your finger?
Where is your finger?
Where is your finger?
Show me if you can.
Good, now where's your nose?
Now, where is your nose?
Now, where is your nose?
Show me if you can. (Use other body parts.)


My hands upon my head I place, (Do actions as described, then bring hands
down slowly & place them in lap.)
On my shoulders, on my face,
On my knees, & at my side,
Then behind me they will hide.
Then I raise them up So high
'Till they almost reach the sky.
Swiftly count them-1,2,3,
And see how quietly they can be.

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   Unknown 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.

Sung to: "B-I-N-G-O"

Once there was a skeleton,
And Bones was his name, oh!
B-O-N-E-S, B-O-N-E-S, B-O-N-E-S,
And Bones was his name, oh!

Once there was a skeleton,
And Bones was his name, oh!
B-O-N-E-(clap), B-O-N-E-(clap), B-O-N-E-(clap),
And Bones was his name, oh!

(Continue to repeat the verse--each time dropping one more letter from and adding a clap to B-O-N-E-S--until the entire name is clapped.)
