Dingle Dangle Scarecrow

When all the cows were sleeping and the sun had gone to bed (crouch down low)
Up jumped the scarecrow and this is what he said (jump up)
I’m a dingle dangle scarecrow with a flippy floppy hat (put hands on head)
I can shake my hands like this, I can shake my feet like that (shake hands, then feet)
When all the hens were roosting and the moon behind a cloud
Up jumped the scarecrow and shouted right out loud…
When all the pigs were snoring and the stars were shining bright
Up jumped the scarecrow and shouted with delight…
For young toddlers, shake arms and legs (instead of hands and feet)
For pre-walkers, do as a lap rhyme, with adults lifting babies up instead of children jumping up
