Hello, Neighbor!
(Tune: "Good Night, Ladies")

Hello, neighbor. (Wave to partner.)
What do you say? (Give high five.)
It's going to be a Happy day.
    (Slap, clap, tap hands.)
Greet your neighbor. (Shake hands.)
Boogie on down. (Wiggle hips.)
Give a bump, (Bump hips.)
And turn around. (Turn around.)

The Opposite Song
(Tune: "Shortnin' Bread")

We can do opposites, opposites, opposites.
We can do opposites follow me.
Top and bottom . . . (Act out motions.)
Front and back . . .
Happy and sad . . .
Left and right . . .
Up and down . . .
Loud and soft . . .
Open and shut . . .
Stand and sit . . .
and put them in your lap!

I Know an Old Lady
(Sing in sign language.)

I know an old lady who swallowed a fly.
I don't know why she swallowed a fly,
Perhaps she'll cry.

I know an old lady who swallowed a spider
That wiggled and jiggled and tickled inside her . . .

Bird - How absurd to swallow a bird . . .
Cat - Imagine that she swallowed a cat . . .
Dog - What a hog to swallow a dog . . .
Goat - Just opened her throat and swallowed a goat . . .
Cow - I don't know how she swallowed a cow . . . Horse - This is a silly song, of course!

Let Me See You Boogaloo

Let me see you boogaloo. (Wiggle and clap)
   What's that you say?
I said, let me see you boogaloo.
   What's that you say?
Ooh-ah-ah, ooh-ah-ah,       (Put hands in air)
Ooh-ah-ah, one more time. (and turn around)
Ooh-ah-ah, ooh-ah-ah,
Ooh-ah-ah, ooh!

Let me see you Frankenstein . . .
       (Extend arms and move stiffly)
Let me see you hairy gorilla . . .
       (Hands under arms;
          pretend to be a monkey)
Let me see you funky chicken . . .
       (Cluck like a chicken; flap arms
          like wings)

The Music Cantor
(Pretend to play different instruments
       as they are introduced in the song.)

I am the music cantor,
I come from Slavic Lander.
Econ speelah.
                    Econ speelah.
I'm the viola.
                    I'm the viola.
Vio, vio, viola, vio, viola.
                     Vio, vio, viola, vio, viola.
Piano . . . play, play, play, play, play, play.
Tuba . . . oom pah, oom pah, oom pah pah.
Bagpipe . . . na, na, na, na, na, naaa.

Wally Acha

Wally acha, wally wacha,
    (Slap, cross hands)
Doodley do, doodley do.
    (Hand on nose and ear)
Wally acha, wally acha,
    (Slap, cross hands)
Doodley do, doodley do.
    (Hand on nose and ear)
It's a simple little song there's not much to it,
All you've got to do is doodley do it.
Wally acha, wally acha,
Doodley, doodley do.
Poo poo! (Pull ears)

Repeat louder, softer
