Listen and Learn Music: Move Your Body Along

Move Your Body Along

This morning as I was going through my recent posts, I realized that I haven't posted a new song in several days. Luckily, I spent some time recording a few last night, and the first of the latest batch is here today.

The song is called "Move Your Body Along" and I wrote it as I was planning for the fall session of Church Mice, which begins on Sunday. One of the components of the class is movement, and I wanted a simple song to get the kids going. I think this one will do the job!


Sheet Music: $1

Clap, clap, clap.
We’re gonna clap, clap, clap.
We’re gonna clap our hands
And sing this song,
So move your body along.

Stomp, stomp, stomp,
We’re gonna stomp, stomp, stomp.
We’re gonna stomp our feet
And sing this song,
So move your body along.

Stretch, stretch, stretch.
We’re gonna stretch, stretch, stretch.
We’re gonna stretch our arms
And sing this song,
So move your body along.

Twist, twist, twist.
We’re gonna twist, twist, twist.
We’re gonna twist our waist
And sing this song,
So move your body along.

Jump, jump, jump,
We’re gonna jump, jump, jump.
We’re gonna jump up high
And sing this song,
So move your body along.

Sway, sway, sway,
We’re gonna sway, sway, sway.
We’re gonna sway so slow
And sing this song,
So move your body along.

Sit, sit, sit.
We’re gonna sit, sit, sit.
We’re gonna sit on down
And sing this song,
So move your body along.

This recording will be included on the CD that comes with the class, but I'm going to sing the song without my guitar so that I can move right along with the children. I might even change up the lyrics and movements to keep everyone (including myself!) on their toes, which is something that drives the staff at The Hope Institute crazy. They like to follow right along with the lyrics packet, but I constantly remind them that a little change is good from time to time :)
