Friends: Fingerplay

People.blogMore We Get Together
Text Traditional; Actions by CK Emanuel

The more we get together
ARMS OUT TO SIDES, THEN TOUCH FINGERS TO CHEST
Together, together
ARMS OUT TO SIDES, THEN TOUCH FINGERS TO CHEST
The more we get together
ARMS OUT TO SIDES, THEN TOUCH FINGERS TO CHEST
The happier we’ll be
TRACE A SMILE WITH FINGER
Cause your friends are my friends
EXTEND HAND OUT IN FRONT WITH PALM UP; HAND FLAT ON CHEST
And my friends are your friends
HAND FLAT ON CHEST ; EXTEND HAND OUT IN FRONT WITH PALM UP
The more we get together
ARMS OUT TO SIDES, THEN TOUCH FINGERS TO CHEST
The happier we’ll be
TRACE A SMILE WITH FINGER

HAND MAKES A “Y” BY HAVING THUMB AND PINKY FINGER     STICK OUT OF FIST; BRING TO EAR LIKE A PHONE
No more monkeys eating too much cake.”
