Las partes de mi cuerpo hoy yo voy a cantar
Bailando con mis amigos,
Cada parte moveras
Empiezo con mis bracitos
Con los que puedo abrazar
Con mucho amor a papito
Y luego a mi mama
Moviendo la cabeza yo digo si o no
Moviendo mi colita bailando yo estoy
Ya todos preparados pues vamos aprender
Las partes del cuerpo que tu vas a mover.
Piernas y cabeza
Pies, brazos, cuello, y cadera
Hombros manos y rodillas
Pies brazos y piernas. (X2)

Poem:
Mi Carita/ My Face.
Mi carita redondita
Tiene ojos y nariz
Y tambien una boquita
Para hablar y sonreir
Con mis ojos veo todo
Con mi nariz hago ¡achiiis!!

Palomitas de maiz.

Dos ojitos para mirar
Dos orejitas para escuchar
Una naricita para oler
Y una boquita que le gusta comer.

Saco mi manito
La hago bailar

Y la vuelvo a guardar
Saco mi otra manito
La hago bailar
La cierro la habro
