Open Them, Shut Them
Open them, shut them
Open them, shut them
Give a little clap
Open them, shut them
Open them, shut them
Put them in your lap
Creep the, creep them
Up to your chin
Open your mouth
But don’t let them in!
Open them, shut them
Open them, shut them
Put them in your lap

Down By the Station
Down by the station
Early in the morning
See the little puffer-bellies all in a row
See the station master pull the little handle
Puff, puff, toot, toot, off we go

Criss, Cross, Applesauce

Tight squeeze (hug)
Now you’ve got the shivers! (tickle)

Rattle Song
Tune: London Bridge
Shake it high and shake it low.
Shake it high. Shake it low.
Shake it high and shake it low.
That’s how the rattle goes.
Shake it fast and shake it slow.
Shake it fast. Shake it slow.
Shake it fast and shake it slow.
That’s how the rattle goes
