Can you point your fingers and do the twist?

Can you point your fingers and do the twist?

Well, we're gonna go up, then go down

Get back up and turn around.

Can you point your fingers and do the twist?

Can you stand on one foot and shake your hands?

Can you stand on one foot and shake your hands?

Well, we're gonna go up, then go down

Get back up and turn around.

Can you stand on one foot and shake your hands?

Can you point your fingers and do the twist?

Can you point your fingers and do the twist?

Now we're gonna go up, then go down

Get back up and turn around.

Can you point your fingers and do the twist?
