Open Shut Them (And Other Opposites) Lyrics and Actions

♫ Open shut them, open shut them. [Open and shut your hands.]
Give a little clap, clap, clap. [Clap.]
Open shut them, open shut them.
Put them in your lap, lap, lap. [Pat your legs.]
Big and small.
Big and small. Big and small. [Spread your hands out wide, and then put them close together.]
Big, big, big, big, small, small, small.
Big and small. Big and small.
Big, big, big, big, small, small, small.
Please. No, thank you.
Please. No, thank you. Please. No, thank you.[Clasp your hands under your chin as if asking for something, then shake your head and wave your hand in front of your face as if saying, “No, thank you.”]
Please, please, please, please. No thank you.
Please. No, thank you. Please. No, thank you.
Please, please, please, please. No thank you.
Fast and slow.
Fast and slow. Fast and slow. [Move your hands round and round quickly, and then slowly.]
Fast, fast, fast, fast, slow, slow, slow.
Fast and slow. Fast and slow.
Fast, fast, fast, fast, slow, slow, slow.
Loud and quiet.
Loud and quiet. Loud and quiet. [Cup your hands around your mouth and shout, and then put your finger in front of your mouth like you are saying, “Shh.”]
Loud, loud, loud, loud. Shh… Quiet.
Loud and quiet. Loud and quiet.
Loud, loud, loud, loud. Shh… Quiet.
Peek-a-boo.
Peek-a-boo. Peek-a-boo. [Place your hands in front of your face and then quickly move them away as you say, “Boo!”]
Peek-a, peek-a, peek-a-boo!
Peek-a-boo. Peek-a-boo.
Peek-a, peek-a, peek-a-boo! ♫
