Shake it to the East by Kathy Reid-Naiman C1996
Shake it to the east, shake it to the west
Shake it all around and then you take a rest.
Shake your shakers up, shake your shakers down
Shake it, shake it, shake it and then you settle down.

Shake your shaker in the air, in the air,
Shake it here and everywhere.
Shake it up, and shake it down,
Shake it, shake it all around the town.
Shake your shaker in the air, in the air.

Popcorn Song
Pop, Pop, Pop,
Pour the corn into the pot.
Pop, Pop, Pop,
Shake it 'till it's hot.
Pop, pop, pop,
What do we got?
Popcorn!
Popcorn (shake the shakers to the rhythm)
Pop, pop, pop goes the corn in the pot.
Pop, pop, pop, shake it, shake it till it's hot.
Pop, pop, pop, open the lid what have you got?...
Popcorn!!! (shake vigorously)


Scales
start with the shakers low and move them up higher...
Do Re Me Fa Sol La Ti Do

Sick in Bed
Grandma, grandma sick in bed,
Called the doctor and the doctor said
Grandma, Grandma, you're not sick
All you need is a peppermint stick
Shake it by your leg, leg, leg
Shake it by your arm, arm, arm,
Shake it by your head, head, head
Shake it by your feet, feet, feet
Kids shake shakers by parts of the body - they also can call out what
body part they want to shake by. You can also use names of the children
instead of Grandma.

Where is Shaker? (to the tune of Where is Thumbkin)
Where is shaker? Where is shaker? (hide it behind your back)
Here I am! Here I am! (move shaker in front of you and shake)
(At this point you can do a variety of things. I usually use things like
dancing on your head, tapping on your shoulder, tickling your tummy,
bouncing on your knee, etc. Repeat the line twice.)
Run away, Run away (hide behind your back again)

Shake Your Shaker (to the tune of London Bridge)
Shake your shaker in the air
Shake it here, shake it there
Shake your shaker in the air
Shake your shaker
Shake it up and shake it down
Shake your shaker on the ground
Shake it up and shake it down
Shake your shaker
Shake it fast and shake it slow
Shake it stop
Shake it go
Shake it fast and shake it slow
Shake your shaker


Going to Kentucky

We’re going to Kentucky,
We’re going to the fair,
To see the senoritas
With roses in their hair.
So….shake it baby shake it,
Shake it all you can.
Shake it like a milkshake,
Shake it in a can
Rumba to the bottom,\
Rumba to the top,
Turn around and turn around
Until we holler STOP!!

Shaker Egg Song—tune: “La Cucuracha”
You shake your egg left
You shake your egg right
You shake your egg all around
You shake your egg high
You shake your egg low
Crack your egg upon the ground
Cha-cha-cha! [do exactly what it says, and at the end, tap your egg on the ground 3 x]


“Shake your egg, shake your egg, shake your egg, ONE!” (roughly to the first part of the tune of “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star”—if I thought really hard, I could write out the sheet music for you)
Shake your egg, shake your egg, shake your egg for fun
Shake your egg, shake your egg, shake your egg, one. . .ONE!
Shake your egg, shake your egg, shake your egg, do!
Shake your egg, shake your egg, shake your egg, two. . .ONE, TWO!
Shake your egg, shake your egg, shake your egg like me
Shake your egg, shake your egg, shake your egg three. . .ONE, TWO, THREE!
Shake your egg, shake your egg, shake your egg some more
Shake your egg, shake your egg, shake your egg, four. . .ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR!!!!!!
Okay, now shake your egg a lot. . . . a-n-d. . . .STOP!
