BIRDIE SONG

Note: Works really well if person leading sings in funny voice and puts a lot of movement into it.

 

Wa-y up in the sky (point to the sky)

The little bir-dies fly (make wings moving arms up and down)

Way down in their nest (make next with palms side by side)

The lit-tle bir-dies rest (hands with palms together under ear like a pillow)

With a wing on the left (wave left arm up and down)

When group finally ends up on their backs, the song is over.

There’s a wishy washy washer woman

washin’ her clothes

She goes Ooh Ahh!

She goes Ooh Ahh!

That’s how the wishy, washy, washer, woman washes her clothes!

PAUSE (put one arm bent, parallel to ground, put elbow on hand, and twirl hand)

A guadally atcha! A scooby, dooby, doo

A guadally atcha! A scooby, dooby, doo

That’s how the wishy, washy, washer woman washes her clothes!

 

Repeat using the following:

That’s how the wishy, washy, washer woman dries her clothes (blow on clothes on Ooh!)

That’s how the wishy, washy, washer woman folds her clothes (shark eating moving)

That’s how the wishy, washy, washer woman eat’s oreos (some serious oreo action)

That’s how the wishy, washy, washer woman picks her nose (pick and fling)
