Can You Walk on Tiptoe


(Traditional chant)

Can you walk on tiptoe,
As softly as a cat?
And can you stamp along the road,
Stamp, stamp, just like that?

Can you take some great big strides,
Just like a giant can?
Or walk along so slowly
Like a poor bent old man.


Act out the movements of the chant.
