Henry: Breebop. Hi everybody! It's time to get your arms ready and have a dance with me, Henry the Octopus. Ohhhhhh!

Move your arms like Henry

Shake your hands like Henry

Henry: That's right

Shake your hands like Henry

Shake your hands around, and around, and around, and around like Henry

He's got so many hands, he's waving all the time

Move your arms like Henry
