SING

The Eensy, Weensy Spider and The Great Big Spider

The Eensy Weensy Spider
Climbed up the water spout. (Thumbs and point fingers climb up each other)
Down came the rain (Raise hands and lower them while wriggling fingers)
And washed the spider out. (Sweep arms to the side)
Out came the sun (Raise hands above head to form circle)
And dried up all the rain,
And the Eensy Weensy Spider
Climbed up the spout again. (Repeat as before)

The Great Big Spider
Climbed up the water spout. (Hold arms out to side and raise them up)
Down came the rain (Raise hands and lower them while wriggling fingers)
And washed the spider out. (Sweep arms to the side)
Out came the sun (Raise hands above head to form circle)
And dried up all the rain,
And the Great Big Spider
Climbed up the spout again. (Repeat as before)
