Head, Shoulders, Knees And Toes

Additional Words and Music: Hap Palmer

Head and shoulders, baby
One, two, three
Head and shoulders, baby
One, two, three
Head and shoulders, baby
One, two, three
Spin, spin, spin around
And touch the ground

Knees and toes, baby
One, two, three
Knees and toes, baby
One, two, three
Knees and toes, baby
One, two, three
Spin, spin, spin around
And touch the ground

Head, shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes
Head, shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes
Eyes, and ears and mouth and nose
Head, shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes
Repeat Refrain

Action:
Touch each body part as it is named. Clap your hands three times when you hear the numbers “one, two, three.”

Variation:
What other parts of your body could you touch? What is another motion you could do for three counts? Make up your own verses to this song. For example:
Wrists and ankles, baby, jump, jump, jump
Wrists and ankles, baby, jump, jump, jump
Wrists and ankles, baby, jump, jump, jump
Swing, swing, swing your arms then stop and freeze
With the instrumental version, sing this song using your ideas.

Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes

Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes,
Knees and Toes
Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes,
Knees and Toes

And Eyes and Ears and Mouth and Nose
Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes

[This is an action song, good for warming up. While singing, touch both hands to the head, then the shoulders, then the knees, and then the toes, in time with the words. Then on the second verse, miss out the word “Head”, but still do the actions. On the third verse, miss out the word “Shoulders”, and so on. Finish with all the words back in, but singing as fast as possible!]

Another version:
to the tune of “London Bridge”

Head and shoulders, knees and toes,
Knees and toes,
Knees and toes,
Head and shoulders, knees and toes,
It’s my body

Eyes and ears and mouth and nose,
Mouth and nose,
Mouth and nose,
Eyes and ears and mouth and nose,
It’s my body

Ankles, elbows, feet and seat,
Feet and seat,
Feet and seat,
Ankles, elbows, feet and seat,
It’s my body
