01 Get Ready to Wiggle

Song Lyrics

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.

Wiggle to this song (2x)

Ba-da-ba-ba, ba-dum-ba-dum. (3x)

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.

Wiggle all ten toes (2x)

Ba-dum-ba-ba-ba-dum. (3x)

Ba-dum ba-ba

We can wiggle (Whoo!) and wiggle. (Whoo!)

Wiggle at home without a care.

Wiggle (Whoo!) and wiggle. (Whoo!)

Wiggle on your own or with teddy bear.

Wiggle (Whoo!) and wiggle. (Whoo!)

Wiggle at breakfast, lunch or tea.

Wiggle (Whoo!) and wiggle. (Whoo!)

Wiggle along with me. Thats right! Wiggle along with me.

Ba-da-ba-ba ba-dum ba-dum (3x)

Whoo!
