Fun action song
Everyone needs to stand up and do the actions, it can get very silly!
had seven sons,
had seven sons, had Father Abraham
and he never laughed,
he never cried,
all he did was go like this:"
Swing right arm back and forth and continue the action throughout the rest of the song
Next verse add 'left arm' so both arms are swinging across body
Each time you sing the song, you add the following actions, without ever giving up any of the previous actions:
'right foot' (step foot out in time) then
'left foot' (swap both feet)
'Chin up' (nod)
'Tongue out' (sing the words with your tongue out!)
'Turn around' (Do all that and spin round)
'Sit Down!' (everyone sits down and the song is over)
It takes a lot of coordination!
