I’m an Alligator
Words and Actions by CK Emanuel
To the tune of: I’m a Policeman Dress in Blue
I’m an alligator, yes it’s true;
PUT PALMS TOGETHER AND OPEN AND CLOSE
With skin of a greenish hue.
STROKE ALONG ARM
I swim softly in my swamp,
MOVE HANDS TOGETHER AS IF GATOR IS SWIMMING
Til’ I see dinner– then I chomp!
OPEN AND THEN CLOSE HANDS TOGETHER LIKE MOUTH
Down in the water, look for me.
CUP EYES LIKE BINOCULARS
I could be a branch of a tree!
ARMS TO SIDES LIKE A LOG
Its my trick and its works great–
FINGER TO MOUTH IN “SHH”; THEN GIVE A “THUMBS UP”
Ask the meal I just ate!
