As thankful as I am for the wiggle songs in the book, some of them could use an occasional makeover to spice things up. When it comes to reverent songs, I'm never a fan of changing any words. But wiggle songs? Totally.
I do it all.the.time.
Here are some of my lyric switcheroos for "I Wiggle" on page 271 of the Children's Songbook.
NORMAL version (click here for complete lyrics): fingers/toes/shoulders/nose
Alternate rhymes to throw in:
1 syllable: chin/shin
^ President Monson's ear wiggling! It's hilarious to watch the kids try
2-3 syllables: eyelash/mustache
I would absolutely love some more twists to this song, so comment with more body part rhymes!
You can tell I love teaching the kids anatomical terms occasionally (yes, I'm a nerd), so feel free to throw in bones or even involuntary organ muscles-- I get a kick out of intestine wiggling attempts. Mwuahahahaha.
