Hokey Pokey, The

This song is classic for all ages. Typically sung in a circle.
Joanie Bartels' version is quite famous.



Everyone stands in a circle and does the motions as they sing them. Below are some of the more common verses.

You put your right hand in
You take your right hand out
You put your right hand in
And you shake it all about
You do the hokey pokey
And you turn yourself around
That's what it's all about!

You put your left hand in
You take your left hand out
You put your left hand in
And you shake it all about
You do the hokey pokey
And you turn yourself around
That's what it's all about!

You put your right foot in
You take your right foot out
You put your right foot in
And you shake it all about
You do the hokey pokey
And you turn yourself around
That's what it's all about!

You put your left foot in
You take your left foot out
You put your left foot in
And you shake it all about
You do the hokey pokey
And you turn yourself around
That's what it's all about!

You put your right side in...
You put your left side in...
You put your head in...
You put your whole self in...

Of course, use whatever body parts you like!
