Open, shut them

Open, shut them
Give a little clap (clap)
Open, shut them
Open, shut them
Put them in your lap
(put hands in lap)

Creep them, creep them
Under your chin
(creep fingers up chest)
Open your mouth, but don't put them in
(do as words say)

Open, shut them
Open, shut them
Give a little clap
Open shut them
Open shut them
Put them in your lap

Here is the sea, the wavy sea,

All the little fishes down below
(point downwards)
Wriggle their tails, and away they go. 
(wiggle fingers behind you)
