Open them, shut them… Open them, shut them…Put them in your lap

Ten Little Pearly Whites
One little, two little, three little pearly-whites
Four little, five little, six little pearly-whites
Seven little, eight little, nine little pearly-whites
Ten little pearly whites on top

One little, two little, three little pearly-whites
Four little, five little, six little pearly-whites
Seven little, eight little, nine little pearly-whites
Ten little pearly whites on the bottom

Brush, brush, brush those pearly-whites…

This is the Way We Clap Our Hands
This is the way we clap our hands,
Clap our hands, clap our hands.
This is the way we clap our hands,
So early in the morning.
Shake our legs...
Wiggle our toes...
Swing our arms...
Tickle our tummies...
