If You’re Happy and You Know It: Dino Edition
Add a few dino moves into the usual song, for example, If you’re happy and you know it gnash your teeth!”
Dino-Pokey
(Tune: "The Hokey Pokey")
You put your claws in,
You take your claws out,
You put your claws in,
And you scratch 'em all about.
You do the dino pokey,
And you turn yourself around.
That's what it's all about!
You put your feet in
You put your feet out
You put your feet in
And you stomp them all about.
You do the dino pokey,
And you turn yourself around.
That's what it's all about!
You put your teeth in
You put your teeth out
You put your teeth in
And chomp them all about.
You do the dino pokey,
And you turn yourself around.
That's what it's all about!
You put your tail in
You put your tail out
You put your tail in
And you wag it all about
You do the dino pokey,
And you turn yourself around.
That's what it's all about!
