Princess Pat / Rigabamboo

Description:

This is a long one but so much fun to do

Lyrics:

This is a repeat after me cheer.
The Princess Pat (Egyptian hand sign)
Lives in a tree (slap hands above head on tree)
She sailed across (waves with hand)
The seven seas (number 7, letter C)
She sailed across (waves with hands)
The channel two (go straight down with hands then number 2)
And took with her (hitchhiker bag over shoulder)
A RIGABAMBOO (jazz hands from above head to below knees)

Chorus:
A RIGABAMBOO (jazz hands from above head to below knees)
Now what is that? (the “I-don’t-know” hand sign)
Its something made (hit your fists against each other four times: 2 with left on top, 2 with right)
By the Princess Pat (Egyptian)
Its red and gold (twirl right hand)
And purple two (twirl left hand)
THAT’S WHY ITS CALLED (shout with hands around your mouth)
A Rigabamboo (jazz hands from above head to below knees)

Now Captain Jack (hand on forehead)
Had a mighty fine crew (point finger three times)
He sailed across (waves with hands)
The channel two (go straight down with hands then number 2)
But his ship sank (hold nose, and sink your body)
AND SO WILL YOU (point and shout)
If you don’t take (hitchhiker bag over shoulder)
A RIGABAMBOO (jazz hands from above head to below knees)

Chorus again!
