A Silly song…

 “If You’re Silly and You Know It”

If you’re silly and you know it, wriggle your nose
If you’re silly and you know it, wriggle your nose
If you’re silly and you know it, then your face will surely show it
If you’re silly and you know it, wriggle your nose

Stomp your feet // Shout hooray // Jump up and down
