(Piano solo)

Lachy: When you hear the swingin' beat swingin' song to bat

You know it's time to get in line, and do the skeleton skat!

Emma, can you play the drums? Let's hear that swingin' beat!

Emma: I'll play the drums with my hands and dance a dance with my feat!

(Drum solo)

Lachy: Simon, can you use your voice to make that low tone?

Simon: I'll sing my notes so low that they just sound like a trumbone.

(Simon sings real low)

Lachy: Anthony, play the guitar. Let's hear those jammed out strings.

Anthony: I'll play the guitar, like a star. Make those strings ring. Gee c'mon!

(Guitar solo)

Lachy: Now's the time, don't be shy. Use your voice and skat.

When I count 1, 2, 3, Let's do the skeleton skat!

(Lachy sings a bunch of made up words)

1, 2 3!

Emma, Simon, and Anthony: (The Awake Wiggles repeat Lachy)

Lachy: (Lachy sings made up words, again)

1, 2, 3!

Emma, Simon, and Anthony: (The Awake Wiggles repeat Lachy, again)

(Piano solo)
