Sing a Song

Jack-in-the-Box

Jack-in-the-box, all shut up tight,
(Close fist with thumb tucked in; cover with flat palm of over hand.)
Not a breath of air or a ray of light,
How tired he must be, all folded up.
Let’s open the lid,
(Raise hand slightly.)
And up he’ll jump!
(Remove hand quickly and pop up other thumb.)
