Lyrics

Movin' and Groovin'/Mueve y Baila

Written By: Beth Butler

Movin’ and groovin’!
I like to move! I like to groove!
Mueve y Baila!
Move and groove with me! (**chorus**)

Close your eyes, Cierra tus ojos.
Pull your ears, Ala tus orejas.
Now say yes with your head.
Ahora di si con tu cabeza.

Open your mouth, Abre tu boca.
Touch your teeth, Toca tus dientes.
Now stick out your tongue.
Ahora saca tu lengua.
(**chorus**)

Raise your eyebrows, Lavanta tus cejas.
Pull your hair, Ala tu pelo.
Now wrinkle up your nose.
Ahora arruga tu nariz.

Shake your shoulders, Sacude tus hombros.
Lift your arms, Levanta tus brazos.
Now clap with your hands.
Ahora aplaude con tus manos.
(**chorus**)

Wiggle your fingers, Mueven tus dedos.
Wiggle your seat, Mueve tu trasero.
Now run with your legs.
Ahora corre con tus piernas.

Touch your tummy, Toca tu bariga.
Shake your hips, Sacuden tus caderas.
Now turn all the way around.
Ahora dese una vuelta.
(**chorus**)

Bend your knees, Dobla tus rodillas.
Touch your feet, Toca tus pies.
Now stand on one foot.
Ahora sobre un pie.

Stretch up high, Estira alto.
Sit down low, Sientate bajo.
Now rest your special body.
Ahora descansa tu cuerpo especial.
