Sing a Song

Grey Squirrel

Grey Squirrel, grey squirrel
Swish your bushy tail.
(have the children shake their imaginary tails)
Grey Squirrel, grey squirrel
Swish your bushy tail.
Wrinkle up your funny nose
(touch your nose with your finger and wriggle it)
Put a nut between your toes (pretend to do so)
Grey squirrel, grey squirrel
Swish your bushy tail.
