Spinning in a Circle
Here To Play

All the songs on the album, "Here to Play" are fun for children age 4-7.
I love the piano part that Anne Silverman played for the studio recording.  
Each verse has its own distinct sound to compliment the actions spelled
out in the lyrics.  

I love how this song is so accessible for younger children as well.  

When my boys were infants and toddlers I hosted a drop-in musical play
group at The Performing Arts Center at 51 Walden in Concord, MA.  
"Spinning in a Circle" was a favorite get up and dance request.  What I
remember best are the smiling faces of the infant babies being twirled
around.  

Recently, I bumped into a mom who had come regularly to 51 Walden.  
She told me it was her favorite time of the week because the drop-in play
group was a low pressure opportunity to meet and socialize with other new
parents.

Spinning in a Circle by Tim Seston

We’re spinning in a circle and we’re marching in a square
We’re resting in a rectangle, then we’re jumping everywhere

We’re trotting in a triangle on our trusty horse
We turn at every corner so that we stay on course

We’ll shuffle down a zig-zag, mosey back and forth
We move in all directions:  south, east, west and north

We’re spinning in a circle and we’re marching in a square
We’re resting in a rectangle, then we’re jumping everywhere

Say hey, hey ho.  
On your feet, stretch your legs time to go, go, go
Say ho, ho hey.  
Save sitting around for a rainy day

We’re dancing in a diamond on our tippee-toes
Our arms are moving gracefully, we twirl nice and slow

We’re driving in a pentagon in our shiny car
We stop to ask directions so we know where we are.

Up ahead we see an octagon, so to it we all hop
We read the four white letters, they tell us all to stop

We’re spinning in a circle and we’re marching in a square
We’re resting in a rectangle, then we’re jumping everywhere
We’re resting in a rectangle, then we’ll go back to our chair
