Tinkerboxer

This is an old favorite with seemingly infinite variations.
The video below is the closest approximation to my version of Tinkerboxer (lyrics below) that I could find.



I point to my head; what have we here?
This is my Tinkerboxer, ya mama dear!
Tinkerboxer, Tinkerboxer,
O ya mama dear,
That's what we're learning in school, ya ya!

I point to my ears; what have we here?
These are my Telefoners, ya mama dear!

Tap head



Swing arm across torso on "ya ya"


Wiggle ears





Blink eyes





Pinch nose





Speak loudly






Move finger up and down on neck, distort voice






Rub your chest






Pat belly






Bend and unbend knee







Pretend to kick a ball
