Open, Shut Them

A super simple song with a dramatic ending.



Open, shut them, open, shut them,
Give a little clap, clap, clap.
Open, shut them, open, shut them,
Put them in your lap, lap, lap.

Creep them, crawl them, creep them, crawl them,
Right up to your chin, chin, chin.
Open wide your little mouth, but
Do not let them in!


Variation:
Open, shut them, open, shut them,
To your shoulders fly!
Now like little birdies let them
Flutter to the sky!
Now falling, falling, falling, falling,
Down to the ground!
Now quickly pick them up again,
and turn them round and round.
Faster....faster.....faster!
Slower.....slower....slower!
Open, shut them, open, shut them,
Give a little clap, clap, clap.
Open, shut them, open, shut them,
Put them in your lap, lap, lap.


Slowly open and shut hands
Clap hands on each "clap"
Slowly open and shut hands
Slowly lower hands and tap your lap on each "lap"

Creep your hands up your torso
Tap chin lightly on each "chin"
Open mouth wider and wider...
Sing very quickly, move hands behind your back!
