This is a great song to sing as you and your child get ready in the morning.

Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush

This is the way we clap our hands, clap our hands, clap our hands.
This is the way we clap our hands so early in the morning.
Clap your hands.
This is the way we wash our hands, wash our hands, wash our hands.
This is the way we wash our hands so early in the morning.
Pretend to wash your hands.
This is the way we brush our hair, brush our hair, brush our hair.
This is the way we clap our hands so early in the morning.
Pretend to brush your hair.
This is the way we tie our shoes, tie our shoes, tie our shoes.
This is the way we tie our shoes so early in the morning.
Pretend to tie your shoes.
This the way we run away, run away, run away.
This is the way we run away so early in the morning.
Run in place.
