Dan the Music Man Lyrics by Michelle Waines Greenwell, Music by Dan Devion © SOCAN 2006-2014 All rights reserved

1. Jacob's Rap

Can you do Jacob’s rap? Spin, dive, clap or even tap?

Jacob’s rap is about a mouse Who lives inside a special house
With music and rhythm on the upstairs floor Jacob’s rap pops, locks and more.

Can you do Jacob’s rap? Spin, Dive, Clap or even Tap?

Let’s see you try to do your very best To rap like Jacob we expect no less.
Chant with me about your favorite moves, ‘Cause Jacob wants to dance with you.

Can you do Jacob’s Rap? Spin, Dive, Clap or even Tap?

How much grooving have you got? We say we got a lot.

Shake with your shoulders, Pop with your knees, Circle with your hips, If you please.
Look to the left, look to the right. Wave your arms then lock them tight.
De da do da Ba dee ha Lee la dee da ooh la la

How much grooving have you got? We say we got a lot.

Jacob’s rap is about a mouse Who lives inside a special house
With music and rhythm on the upstairs floor Jacob’s rap pops, locks and more.

Can you do Jacob’s rap? Spin, dive, clap or even tap?

Shake with your shoulders, Pop with your knees, Circle with your hips, If you please.
Look to the left, look to the right. Wave your arms, then lock them tight.
De da do da Ba dee ha Lee la dee da ooh la la

Can you do Jacob’s Rap? Spin, dive, clap or even tap?

Now you’ve tried to do your best, You better stall, then have a rest!

2. Hickory Dickory Dock

Hickory Dickory Dock, Tick Tock
Stacey Ran up the Clock, Tick Tock
the clock struck one, Stacey did run,
Hickory Dickory Dock Tick Tock

Hickory Dickory Dock, Tick Tock
Jacob ran up the clock, Tick Tock
the clock struck two, Jacob stamped with his shoe,
Hickory Dickory Dock Tick Tock

Hickory Dickory Dock Tick Tock
Peter ran up the clock, Tick Tock
the clock struck three, Peter shouted Yippee!
Hickory Dickory Dock Tick Tock

3. What Shape Does My Body Make

Talking:
When we dance we make pictures for the audience, And the pictures are shapes like triangles, rectangles and diamonds.
Everybody likes diamonds, Imagine you were a diamond shimmering and bright.

Chorus: What shape does my body make? What can I do? With my feet or my legs, my arms and hands too?
I move them so carefully with each musical cue, I can create pictures and send them to you.


First Verse:
With my heels together and my toes turned out wide, I drop my knees open to fi nd a diamond inside.
Closing my knees I fi nd one shape more, It looks like a rectangle when I close like a door.
I can circle my hands down to look like a drum, I can burst them up high and cheer “Bubblegum.”
With my foot I can slide up the side of my leg, To balance with a triangle on my tip toes I beg.

Chorus

Second Verse:
With my feet pressed together in a square on the floor, I can flip my foot forward and lunge with my core.
The start with my feet is jazz fi rst they say, I can tendu this triangle back together to stay.
I can make a big eight lying over on its side, With a sway in my body my toes stretch out the side.
I circle my hands from the right up the middle, Drop to the left into the center with a giggle.

Chorus

4. Criss Cross Oh My Gosh

Criss cross oh my gosh! That’s the way to do the body talk.

Let’s march, right, left, up, down.
Build your energy with dancing fun, March, march, march, march. March your feet and come along,
Right left Hup right left Hup right left left right Hup left right Hup left right right left Hup right left Hup right left left right Hup left right Hup left right.
Let’s find some energy for dancing fun, Clap your hands on the opposite knee. Clap, clap, clap, clap.
Let’s find some energy for our brains, Touch your nose, and cross your hands. Switch, Switch, Switch, Switch, Add a twist, twist, twist, twist.

Criss cross oh my gosh! That’s the way to do the body talk.

Shoulder, Shoulder, Hip, Hip. Knees, Knees, If you please. Toes, Toes, Knees, Knees. Hip, Hip, Shoulder, Shoulder.
Wrap one ear and wrap the other.
March it out and let’s do it again.
Right left Hup right left Hup right left left right Hup left right Hup left right right left Hup right left Hup right left left right Hup left right Hup left right.
Clap, Clap, Clap, Clap Right left, Jump Down, Twist, twist, twist, twist, Twist, twist, twist, twist, Run, run, run, run, run, Here we go.

Criss cross oh my gosh! That’s the way to do the body talk.

Shoulder, Shoulder, Hip, Hip. Knees, Knees, If you please. Toes, Toes, Knees, Knees. Hip, Hip, Shoulder, Shoulder.
Wrap one ear and wrap the other.
March it out let’s do it again.

Criss cross oh my gosh! That’s the way to do the body talk.

5. Twinkle Toes

I went to my dance class to learn something new, My teacher smiled softly and showed us the moves.
We fluttered with scarves in a butterfly pose, But mostly we floated with our twinkle toes.
There are so many ways that twinkle toes like to move, You can be a ballerina or fi nd a tap groove.
Sometimes you can dive and roll on the floor, But always your feet just want to move more.

‘Cause twinkle toes move like a bird taking flight. Or prance like a pony to jump out of sight.
In fluorescent lights with stars on the floor. We ran on our tip toes wishing to learn more.

Follow the leader and do as they do, For the more that we practice the more we can do.
We can spin on the spot and move with such grace, And find a sweet expression, a smile for our face.
I went to my dance class to learn something new, We like to dress up and learn choreography too.
We learnt all our steps in our special shoes, Our twinkle toes showing us how, how to move.

Twinkle toes. Twinkle toes move like a bird taking flight. Or prance like a pony to jump out of sight.
In fluorescent lights with stars on the floor. We ran on our tip toes wishing to learn more. Twinkle toes.
Thank you, twinkle toes.

6. Peter's Drumming up a Beat

Drumming up a beat. Peter has a base drum, a base drum. Peter has a base drum, drumming up a beat.
Peter plays the high hat, high hat. Peter plays the high hat, drumming up a beat.
Peter plays the snare drum, snare drum. Peter plays the snare drum, drumming up a beat.
Peter plays the tom tom, tom tom. Peter plays the tom tom, drumming up a beat.
Peter plays the cymbols, cymbols. Peter plays the cymbols, drumming up a beat.
Peter plays the bongos, bongos. Peter plays the bongos, drumming up a beat.
Peter plays the chimes. Peter plays the chimes, drumming up a beat
Put it all together, drumming up a beat.

7. Stacey's Crazy Hat Dance

Part A
There’ is a special hat, that Stacey likes to share. To dance around the hat, with fancy steps we dare.
Part B
We all dance a crazy hat dance, as we spin around the room. We try to move our bodies, with all the coolest moves.

8. Take Me Over There

How do you get from one place to another? You can’t rely on a ride from mother.
So gather up all your energy and your might, And let the music set your body into flight.
Let’s Skip! One knee up high. Let’s skip. Stretch your arms like a bird. Let’s skip.
Can you hear the rhythm? Let’s skip. Da dee, da dee, da dee, da dee! Let’s skip, let’s skip.
Okay now, take me over there. How we gonna get there? Let’s Leap!
A jete extends out long. You can jump over a log or a mud puddle. Let’s leap!
Can you hear this rhythm? Okay take me over there. Okay, let’s Jazz Run. Leap forward and point your back toe.
Move with the rhythm, Ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya! Jazz run.
Okay let’s go over there. Let’s Hop. First on one foot, then the other. Make a rhythm.
Okay, take me over there. Let’s Tip Toe. On the balls of your feet take little steps or sneak. Pitter patter pitter patter pat!
Okay, take me over there. Let’s Candy Smash. Da da. Slowly. Quickly. Let’s move with all these sounds.

9. I Can Stand Like That

This song is your opportunity to practice many of the positions used by dancers.
You can dance them on your own, or you can use feet cut out of foam placed in the positions.
Each foot position has it’s own piece of music and can be used as a practice song for the technique.
We hope you have fun! If you are not sure about any of the positions please refer to the poster links included with the CD.

    What a great idea!

    I loved the book Smart Moves which uses the Brain Gym activities. I am a Kindermusik educator and think the idea of setting these movements to music is perfect!

    If you teach dance to kids, get this CD
    This is a fun, accessible and well designed CD for kids classes in movement. Put this first on your wish list. Michelle is a very intuitive and creative artist who has dedicated her life to this work. I'm sure you'll get lots of inspiration for your little ones from her. A must for any kids dance class.

    Impressed by both the original songs and the production values!
    Really enjoyed the albums and was quite impressed by both the original songs and the production values. With that in mind, I’ll start spinning a few of the tracks, specifically “Alphabet Soup”, “Roller Coaster” and “Monkey Time” beginning this week.
