Three Billy Goats Fairy Tale : Fingerplay

GoatSNGThere’s a troll, there’s a troll,
MAKE A SCARY FACE
there’s a troll under the bridge.
PUT FINGERTIPS TOGETHER TO MAKE AN ARCH
There’s a goat, there’s a goat,
GRAB CHIN AND PULL DOWN AS IF STROKING A BEARD
there’s an itty bitty billy goat.
PUT INDEX FINGER AND THUMB CLOSE TOGETHER

Hear a trip, Hear a trap,
PAT THIGHS
Hear a trip trap over the bridge.
PUT FINGERTIPS TOGETHER TO MAKE AN ARCH
Here’s the troll, Here’s the troll,
MAKE A SCARY FACE
Here’s the troll on the bridge.
PUT FINGERTIPS TOGETHER TO MAKE AN ARCH
Hear a roar, Hear a roar,
CUP HAND OVER MOUTH
But the billy goat has a plan
TAP TEMPLE WITH FINGER

Troll just wait, just wait
HAND OUT, PALM AWAY FROM YOU
Just wait for a bigger goat.
HANDS TOGETHER, THEN SPREAD APART

There’s a goat, there’s a goat
GRAB CHIN AND PULL DOWN AS IF STROKING A BEARD

Head goes down, horns points up
MOVE FIST DOWNWARDS
STICK 2 FINGERS OUT OF FIST OF HEAD LIKE HORNS
Head goes down so the horns point up
AS BEFORE
Here’s the charge! Here’s the charge!
MOVE HAND WITH HORNS FORWARD
The Billy Goat rammed the troll!
COLLIDE HORNED FIST INTO OPPOSITE HAND AND SEND IT FLYING

Now the bridge, now the bridge,
PUT FINGERTIPS TOGETHER TO MAKE AN ARCH
Now there’s no troll under the bridge.

SPREAD HANDS APART WIDER, SHAKE HEAD NO
