Four red ap-ples, etc.

I have ten fin-gers hold up both hands, fin-gers spread And they all be-long to me, point to self
I can make them do things-
Would you like to see?
I can shut them up tight make fists
I can open them wide open hands
I can put them to-geth-er place palms to-geth-er
I can make them all hide put hands be-hind back
I can make them jump high hands over head
I can make them jump low touch floor
I can fold them up qui-et-ly fold hands in lap
And hold them just so.
