Give a Smack-a-Doodle
Here To Play

When I am teaching preschool, I often say goodbye after class with a high five
or a pound or a hand shake.  One day a three year old boy asked if he could
give me a smack-a-doodle.

"What's that?"

"It's when I jump as high as I can and smack your hand."

"OK, sounds good"

I wrote this song that afternoon.

Give a Smack-a-Doodle by Tim Seston

Give a smack-a-doodle, big jump
Wrap your fingers tight, fist pump
After playing our music and it's time for goodbye
We like to pound, shake hands or give a little high five

So find yourself a partner bow to him or her
Then shake like a puppy who is drying its fur
Flap your arms like a bird flying up in the sky
Sing the chorus with me because it's time for goodbye

Chorus

So find another partner who is close to you
Start hopping around like you're a kangaroo
Go swimming like a turtle in the deep blue sea
It's time for goodbye, sing the chorus with me

Chorus

Find a final partner hurry up now please
Then act like a monkey swinging through the trees
Stomp like an elephant marching along
Let's all sing the chorus of our goodbye song

Chorus
