Number One Tickle Your Tum Lyrics

Number one, tickle your tum.
Number two, just say 'Boo!'
Number three, touch your knee.
Number four, touch the floor.
Number five, do a dive.
Number six, wriggle your hips.
Number seven, jump to heaven.
Number eight, stand up straight.
Number nine, walk in a line.
Number ten, do it all again!
