Thumbkin Says “I’ll Dance”


(Folk song)

1. Thumbkin says, “I’ll dance.”
Thumbkin says, “I’ll sing.”
Dance and sing you merry little men,
Thumbkin says, “I’ll dance and sing.”

2. Pointer says, “I’ll dance!”…
2. Tall man says, “I’ll dance!”…
4. Ring man says, “I’ll dance!”…
5. Pinkie says, “I’ll dance!”…
6. All the men say, “We’ll dance!”…
7. All the men say, “We’ll rest!”…


Wiggle each finger as you sing about it. On “dance and sing ye merry little men,” wiggle all fingers.

On “We’ll rest,” fold hands in lap.
