Open Shut Them

Open Shut Them Papapishu

Open, shut them, 
Open, shut them 
Give a little clap  

Open shut them, 
Open shut them 
Lay them in your lap 

Creep them, creep them 
Creep them, creep them 
Right up to your chin 

Open wide your little mouth 
But do not let them in!

Shake them, shake them
Shake them, shake them
Shake them just like this

Roll them, roll them
Roll them, roll them,
Blow a little kiss!

Alternative Lyrics:

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.

Wave them, wave them,
Wave them, wave them,
High up in the sky, sky, sky.

Wave to me, I'll wave to you,
Let's all say "Bye, bye."

Alternative Lyrics:

Open, shut them.
Open, shut them.
Give a little clap, clap, clap.

Open, shut them.
Open, shut them.
Fold them in your lap, lap, lap.

Criss and cross them, (Students criss-cross legs.)
Criss and cross them,
Fold them on the floor floor floor.

Creep them creep them,
Creep them creep them,
No noises any more more more. (Students creep fingers up their arms and put them over their lips)
