The Itsy Bitsy Spider

The itsy bitsy spider climbed up the water spout
(alternately touch the thumb of one hand to the index finger of the other)

Down came the rain
(hold both hands up and wiggle up and down the fingers as you lower the hands)

And washed the spider out.
(make a sweeping motion with the hands out to the side)

Out came the sun
(bring both hands up and form a semi-circle, think "rising sun")

And dried up all the rain
(place hands palm side up and wiggle fingers)

And the itsy bitsy spider climbed up the spout again.
(alternately touch the thumb of one hand to the index finger of the other)
