Hello and Goodbye

Hello and How Are You?
Wiggleworms Love You

Hello, hello, hello and how are you?
I’m fine, I’m fine, and I hope that you are too (x2)

Now everybody clap your hands
Clap your hands clap your hands
Now everybody clap your hands
Come on and clap your hands

Bonjour, Bonjour, un petit mot d’amour
Bonjour, bonjour, un mot pour tous les jour
Bonjour, bonjour, bonjour comment ça va?
Ça va, ça va, j’espère que toi aussi

Now everybody stomp your feet
Stomp your feet stomp your feet
Now everybody stop your feet
Come on and stomp your feet

Hola, hola hola y cómo estas?
Estoy bién, muy bién y espero que tu también
Hola, hola hola y cómo estas?
Estoy bién, muy bién y espero que tu también

Now everybody wave hello
Wave hello wave hello
Now everybody wave hello
Hello, hello, hello

If You’re Happy

If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands… stomp your feet… say hooray

If you’re ready for a story, take a seat
If you’re ready for a story, take a seat
Clap your hands and stomp your feet
Make your hands all nice and neat
If you’re ready for a story, take a seat

Goodbye Rhyme

We’ve listened to stories
And sat with our friends,
But now we are finished
And it is the end.
Goodbye! Goodnight!

We Are Leaving
(sing to the tune of “Frere Jacques”)

We are leaving, we are leaving,
Time to go, time to go.
It was nice to see you,
It was nice to see you.
Good-bye. Good-bye.
