Sing and Learn the Actions!

Lyrics

Jimmy Jello wibble-wobble,
is an incredibly flexible fellow.
He can do the splits
with his hands on his hips
and balance a banana on his nose
while wriggling his long toes!

Marsha Mellow tingle-tangle,
is a delightful tap, tap dancer.
She can tap on the ceiling
while she 's cart wheeling
wnd whistle a melodious tune
about 'Sally Go Round the Moon '.
