Fingerplay: Open Shut Them x2
Open shut them, open shut them
Give a little clap, clap, clap
Open shut them, open shut them
Put them in your lap, lap, lap

Creep them, creep them
Creep them, creep them
Right up to your chin, chin, chin
Open wide your smiling mouth
But do not let them in!

We’re going to the moon

In 5…4…3…2…1…
Blast off!
