Song Lyrics

Wiggle Time! (album)

Get ready to wiggle, We've been ready for so long.

Get ready to wiggle, When you wiggle, you can't go wrong.

Get ready to wiggle, Wiggle will make you big and strong.

Get ready to wiggle, c'mon wiggle to this song, Wiggle to this song

CHORUS

We're ready to wiggle, Wiggle your fingers high in the sky

We're ready to wiggle, Wiggle your ears and wiggle your eyes

We're ready to wiggle, Wiggle your hair and wiggle your nose

We're ready to wiggle, c'mon wiggle all ten toes, Wiggle all ten toes

We can wiggle and wiggle, Wiggle at home without a care

Wiggle and wiggle, Wiggle on your own or with teddy bear

Wiggle and wiggle, Wiggle at breakfast, lunch or tea

Wiggle and wiggle, wiggle along with me, wiggle along with me

Taking Off!

"Okay, everybody, get ready to wiggle! It's wiggle time! Let's see you dancing, wiggle!"

Get ready to wiggle (Shooby-dooby-doo)

We've been ready for so long.

Get ready to wiggle. (Shooby-dooby-doo)

When you wiggle, you can't go wrong.

Get ready to wiggle. (Shooby-dooby-doo)
