I have ten little fingers, (Hold up all ten fingers)
And they all belong 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; (Extend fingers)
I can put them all together; (Clasp hands)
And I can make them all hide. (Hide hands behind back)

I can put them go high; (Reach hands above head)
I can put them go low; (Touch floor with hands)
I can fold them together, (Clasp hands and intertwine fingers)
And place them just so. (Place hands in lap)
