Sing a Song

I am a Fine Musician

I am a fine musician, I travel round the world.
(Clap hands.)
I can play my violin, my violin, my violin.
(Extend one arm for violin; move other hand back and forth across arm.)
I can play my violin, fiddle-dee-dee-da.
I am a fine musician, I travel round the world.
(Clap hands.)
I can blow my trumpet, my trumpet, my trumpet. (Hold fist to mouth and blow.)
I can blow my trumpet, toot-toot-toot-toot-toot.
I am a fine musician, I travel round the world.
(Clap hands.)
I can crash my cymbals, my cymbals, my cymbals. (Brush palms of hands up and down against each other.)
I can crash my cymbals, crash-crash-crash-crash-bang.
