Clap clap clap your hands.
Clap your hands with me.
Clap them fast. Clap them slow.
Clap your hands with me.

Wag your tail like a dog.
Wag wag wag your tail.
Wag your tail with me.
Wag it fast. Wag it slow.
Wag your tail with me.

Thump your chest like a gorilla.
Thump thump thump your chest.
Thump your chest with me.
Thump it fast. Thump it slow.
Thump your chest with me.

Bend your knees like a camel.
Bend bend bend your knees.
Bend your knees with me.

Bend your knees with me.

Wiggle your ears like a hippopotamus.
Wiggle wiggle wiggle your ears.
Wiggle your ears with me.
Wiggle them fast. Wiggle them slow.
Wiggle your ears with me.

  1. I wish you could add more to it, like flap your wings like a duck, snap your claws like a crab, or kiss your lips like a fish. Could you do that to make a longer version of this song? I think others would like it, too.

    1. +galinatsygankova In most cases, it could be either. Because we try to keep our songs simple for young learners, we focused on fast vs. slow, instead of fast vs. slowly, which is a bit more confusing. Thanks for asking!

  2. My son is 19 months old and he loves your videos since he was 2. I love when he tries to sing with the videos. He just have the rhythm, sound and movement, he can say a word yet but he knows the songs very well. We watch your videos every day before bed. I bet he will love this one too.
    Thanks for all your hard work. Love it.
