Rhyme: "Here's A Little Choo-Choo Train"
 
Here's a little choo-choo train (circle arms close to sides like an old steam train moving)
Chugging down the track (make "choo-choo" train sounds)
First it's going forward (continue to circle arms forward)
Now it's going back! (Circle arms backwards, lean back)
Now the whistle blows - (put hands around mouth, make a loud train whistle)
WHOO-WHOOOOOO!  
What a lot of noise it makes (put your hands over your ears!)
Everywhere it goes!

Wash our face.  
Wash our face.  
This is the way we wash our face,  
So early in the morning!  
   
This is the way we comb our hair, (pretend to comb your hair)
Comb our hair.  
Comb our hair.  
This is the way we comb our hair,  
So early in the morning.  
   
This is the way we brush our teeth, (pretend to brush your teeth)
Brush our teeth.  
Brush our teeth.  
This is the way we brush our teeth,  
So early in the morning!
