ACTION SONG/ CD: Skidamarink
From Old Town School of Folk’s album, Wiggleworms Love You

Skidamarink a dinka dink. (Put right elbow in  left hand and wiggle  fingers)
Skidamarink a doo. (Put left elbow in right hand and wiggle fingers)
I love you. (Point to eyes, hug yourself, and point to others)

Skidamarink a dinka dink. (Repeat actions)
Skidamarink a doo.
I love you.

I love you in the morning. (Make a big circle over head  like the sun)

And in the afternoon. (Hold arms in circle out in front of you)
I love you in the evening. (Move arms in circle down)
And underneath the moon. (Release arms and make another big circle over head)

Skidamarink a dinka dink.
Skidamarink a doo.
I love you.

(Repeat)
