You stick out your little hand
To every woman, kid and man
You sing ho-jee hee-jee hi-ji
Howjadoo, howjadoo,
You sing ho-jee hee-jee hi-ji
Howjadoo  
(Chorus)
How-jee ho-jee hee-jee hi-jee
How-jee doo-jee- doe-jee die-jee
Howjado ja-doo ja-doodle
Howjadoo, howjadoo
Howjado ja-doo ja-doodle
Howjadoo
I feel glad when you feel good,
You brighten up my neighborhood
With your ho-ji hee-jee hi-jee. . (Chorus)
On my sidewalk on my street
To every person that I meet
I say ho-jee hee-jee hi-ji . . .

What are you wearing
What are you wearing
What are you wearing today, today
If you’re wearing red--
Nod your head
If you’re wearing red,
Nod your head
If you’re wearing red
Turn all around
If you’re wearing red
Sit back down.
If you’re wearing brown--
Turn upside down
If you’re wearing blue--
Tie your shoe . .

Mary wore her red dress,
Red dress, red dress,
Mary wore her red dress,
All day long
Where’d you get your shoes                 from. . .
Got ‘em from the dry goods . . .
Where’d you get your butter                 from . . .
Got it from the grocery . . .
Mary was a red bird,
Red bird, red bird,
Mary was a red bird,
All day long

Mary wore her red dress,
Red dress, red dress,
Mary wore her red dress,
All day long
Where’d you get your shoes from. . .
Got ‘em from the dry goods . . .
Where’d you get your butter from . . .
Got it from the grocery . . .
Mary was a red bird, red bird, red bird,
Mary was a red bird, all day long

Ring around the rosie
Pocket full of posies
Ashes, ashes,
All fall down!
Other verses:
The cows are in the meadow
Eating buttercups
Moo, moo,
All stand up!
The king has sent his daughter
To fetch a pail of water
Husha-a! Hush-a!
All bow down
The bird upon the steeple
Sits high above the people
Ashes! Ashes!
All kneel down
The wedding bells are ringing,
The boys and girls are singing,
Ashes, ashes,
All fall down!

We’re going to Kentucky
We’re going to the fair
To see the senorita
With flowers in her hair
Shake it baby shake it
Shake it if you can
Shake it like a milkshake
And do the best you can
Round a do bop! One two!
Round a do bop! One two!
Turn around and turn around
Until you make it stop!

I’m gonna shake, shake, shake my sillies out,
Shake, shake, shake my sillies out,
Shake, shake, shake my sillies out,
Wiggle my waggles all away
You put your Shaker in
You put your Shaker out
You put your shaker in
And you shake it all about
You do the Shakey Pokey
And you turn yourself around
That’s what it’s all about!
Up...down... shake it all around
Near...far... drive them like a car
Here...there...everywhere
There was a man lived in the moon,
Lived in the moon, lived in the moon,
There was a man lived in the moon,
And his name was Aiken Drum
And he played upon a ladle, a ladle, a ladle,
He played upon a ladle,
And his name was Aiken Drum.
His eyes were made of . . .

Hey Jim along, Jim along Josie
Hey Jim along, Jim along Joe
Hey Jim along, Jim along Josie
Hey Jim  along, Jim along Joe
Walk along, Jim along Josie
Walk along, Jim along Joe
Skip along . . .
Crawl along . . .
Let’s walk backwards . . .

Playmate, come out and play with me,
And bring your Barbies three,
Climb up my apple tree.
Climb up my rain spout,
Slide down my cellar door.
And we'll be jolly friends
Forever more.
I don't want to play in your yard.
I don't like you anymore.
You can't holler down my rain barrel,
Or slide down my cellar door.
You'll be sorry when you see me
Climbin' up my apple tree.
I don't want to play in your yard
If you won't be nice to me

Mighty pretty motion Toodala
Toodala, Toodala
Mighty pretty motion Toodala,
Toodala la lady.
Rock old Soney,
Toodala . . .
Clap your hands . . .
Stamp your feet . . .
Goodbye, story time!
