Muddy Pigs: Action Song

Pig.Heart.Mud5 Little Pigs
Text and Actions by CK Emanuel
To the tune of: 5 Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed

Five little pigs rolling in mud
HOLD UP APPROPRIATE NUMBER OF FINGERS
ROLL ON THE GROUND
One climbs out and stinks– P.U.!
JUMP UP
GRAB NOSE WITH ONE HAND WITH WAVING AT NOSE WITH OTHER
Mama called the farmer and the farmer said,
EXTEND PINKY AND THUMB FROM FIST MAKING A “Y” SHAPE AND HOLD TO EAR LIKE A PHONE
No more pigs rolling in mud.”
SHAKE FINGER

REPEAT AND PROCEED TO COUNTDOWN FROM 5 to 1

OPTIONAL FOR ZERO PIGS
No little pigs rolling in mud,
MAKE A ZERO BY TOUCHING FINGERTIPS TO THUMB
all are clean, but getting hot!
WAVE HAND IN FRONT OF FACE
Mama called the farmer and the farmer said,
AS BEFORE
“Have all the pigs roll in mud!”
ROLL ON THE GROUND

POINT TO EYES; KEEP HANDS FLAT AND STILL
Oops, pardon me!

I’m gonna wash those germs right off of my hands
SCRUB HANDS TOGETHER
I’m gonna wash those germs right off of my hands
I’m gonna wash those germs right off of my hands
and stay healthy and strong.
MAKE MUSCLES ARMS ON EITHER SIDE OF HEAD
