Action Song: The Finger Band is Coming to Town

Tune: Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush

The finger band is coming to town
Coming to town, coming to town
The finger band is coming to town
So early in the morning

This is how they strum their guitar
Strum their guitar, strum their guitar
This is how they strum their guitar
So early in the morning

This is how they play their flute
Play their flute, play their flute
This is how they play their flute
So early in the morning

This is the way they bang the drums,
Bang the drums, bang the drums
This is the way they bang the drums
So early in the morning

Oh my look at the time, the band has played all day. It’s time for them to go!

The finger band is going away
Going away, going away
The finger band is going away
They’ve played all day

Spanish Action Song: Mi Cuerpo 

Mi cuerpo, mi cuerpo hace musica
Mi cuerpo, mi cuerpo hace musica
Mis manos hacen (clap, clap, clap)
Mis pies hacen (stomp, stomp, stomp)
Mi boca hace la la la
Mi cuerpo hace cha, cha, cha
