Shake an Egg
Good to Be Four

Shake an Egg by Tim Seston

I think I’ll make, make, make up a song, song, song
So we can shake, shake, shake, the whole day long, long, long.
So shake your leg, leg, leg and shake your hand, hand, hand
Then shake your egg, egg, egg and play in my band, band, band

Now shake it here, here, here and shake it there, there, there
Now shake it near, near, near now everywhere, where, where
Now right on cue, cue, cue if you will please, please, please
Here’s what you’ll do, do, do when I say FREEZE

Now shake it high, high, high and shake it low, low, low
Now you can try, try, try to shake it slow, slow, slow
And then at last, last, last with all your friends, friends, friends
You’ll shake it fast, faster, fastest and then we’ll end, end, end.

Handing out egg shakers to audience members is a
wonderful way to get them involved in the concert.  The
individual sound of each egg is pleasing and collectively
an audience can make any song sound even richer.  

I like singing this song in my preschool classrooms and
watching them follow the different directions in the song.  
Playing fast is a great finale.
