Simple Dance

sung by David (Northern Calloway)

Are ya ready? Here we go...

Come on and do a dance with me
It's just a little step or two
I'll teach you how
We'll start right now
It's a very simple dance to do
First clap your hands, (clap clap clap)
Then stomp your feet (stomp stomp stomp)
It's a very simple dance to do

(music speeds up slightly) Wait I forgot to tell you
There's another little step or two
Turn around (whee)
And touch your toes (groan)
It's a very simple dance to do

Clap your hands, (clap clap clap)
Stomp your feet (stomp stomp stomp)
Turn around (whee)
And touch your toes (groan)
It's a very simple dance to do

(music speeds up again) Wait I forgot to tell you
There's another little step or two
Pull your ears (ouch ouch ouch)
And flap your arms (flap flap flap)
It's a very simple dance to do

Now clap your hands, (clap clap clap)
Stomp your feet (stomp stomp stomp)
Turn around (whee)
Touch your toes (groan)
Pull your ears (ouch ouch ouch)
Flap your arms (flap flap flap)
It's a very simple dance to do

(music is really fast now!) Wait I forgot to tell you
There's another step and then we're through
Stretch up high (ahhhh!)
And all fall down (ooooooh!)
It's a very simple dance to do

Clap your hands, (clap clap clap)
Stomp your feet (stomp stomp stomp)
Turn around (whee)
Touch your toes (groan)
Pull your ears (ouch ouch ouch)
Flap your arms (flap flap flap)
Stretch up high (ahhhhhh!)
And all fall down (ooooooooh!)
It's a very simple dance to do

Clap your hands, (clap clap clap)
Stomp your feet (stomp stomp stomp)
Turn around (whee)
Touch your toes (groan)
Pull your ears (ouch ouch ouch)
Flap your arms (flap flap flap)
Stretch up high (ahhhhhh!)
And all fall down (ooooooooh!)
It's a very simple dance to do

(mass confusion as the music and the instructions become far too fast to follow, then a very-tired sounding David sings...)

It's a .... very .... simple .... dance .... to do.
