Hints and Tips: 

  • Learn the actions of the song

When all the cows were sleeping
And the sun had gone to bed
Up jumped the scarecrow
And this is what he said

I'm a dingle, dangle scarecrow
With a flippy floppy hat
I can shake my hands like this
And shake my feet like that

When all the hens were roosting
And the moon behind the cloud
Up jumped the scarecrow
And shouted very loud

I'm a dingle, dangle scarecrow
With a flippy floppy hat
I can shake my hands like this
And shake my feet like that

Can't fall asleep
What shall I do?
Let's count some sheep!

Still not asleep.
