The Penguin Song

author of text

A combination of a simple, cumulative action song, Have You Ever Had? and Consider The Penguin by Keith Stannard.

Verse 1: moves the right arm, with the hand at 90 degrees like a penguin’s wing sticking out bouncing against your body in time to the beat.
Verse 2: adds the left arm,
Verse 3: adds the right leg,
Verse 4: adds the left and right alternately (or you will either do star jumps or fall over!) and
Verse 5: adds the head nodding! Merry Christmas!
