If your child is too young to do this alone, you can help him find the different fingers, or do it yourself. You can dance your fingers on baby’s shoulders, knees, and head, then tuck them into baby’s armpits.

Tommy Thumb is up (thumbs up)
and Tommy Thumb is down. (thumbs down)
Tommy Thumb is dancing
all around the town.
Dancing on your shoulders,
dancing on your head,
Dancing on your knees,
then tuck him into bed.

Continue the song using different fingers:

Peter Pointer’s up
and Peter Pointer’s down.
Peter Pointer’s dancing
all around the town.
Dancing on your shoulders,
dancing on your head,
Dancing on your knees,
then tuck him into bed.

Middle Man is up
And Middle Man is down.
Middle Man is dancing
All around the town.
Dancing on your shoulders,
dancing on your head,
Dancing on your knees,
then tuck him into bed.

Ruby Ring is up
And Ruby Ring is down.
Ruby Ring is dancing
All around the town.
Dancing on your shoulders,
dancing on your head,
Dancing on your knees,
then tuck him into bed.

Baby Finger’s up
And Baby Finger’s down.
Baby Finger’s dancing
All around the town.
Dancing on your shoulders,
dancing on your head,
Dancing on your knees,
then tuck him into bed.

Finger Family’s up
And Finger Family’s down.
Finger Family’s dancing
All around the town.
Dancing on your shoulders
Dancing on your head,
Dancing on your knees,
then tuck them into bed.
