Two Little Blackbirds

Two little blackbirds
(Hold up both pointer fingers)
Sitting on a hill,
(Or put hands ‘sitting up’ on shoulders)
One named Jack,
(Move one hand forward)
One named Jill,
(Move other hand forward)
Fly away, Jack
(Move one hand behind back)
Fly away, Jill
(Move other hand behind back)
Come back, Jack,
(Bring hands back, one by one)
Come back, Jill.
