Somebody Near You

Shake the hand of somebody near you, somebody near you, somebody near you.
Shake the hand of somebody near you, somebody next to you.
Smile and wink at somebody near you, somebody near you, somebody near you.
Smile and wink at somebody near you, somebody next to you.

Say, “Hi.” Say, “Bye.” 
Now, get up on your feet but keep list’ning to the beat.

Clap your hands with somebody near you, somebody near you, somebody near you.
Clap your hands with somebody near you, somebody next to you.
Now stomp your feet with somebody near you, somebody near you, somebody near you.
Stomp your feet with somebody near you, somebody next to you.

Say, “Ho.” “Let’s go.” 
Now, wiggle with a friend like two trees out in the wind.

Dance around with somebody near you, somebody near you, somebody near you.
Dance around with somebody near you, somebody near you, somebody next to you.
Now, hop up and down with somebody near you, somebody near you, somebody near you.
Now, hop up and down with somebody near you, somebody next to you.

Hey you!   What’s new?
Now, sit back on the floor, we’re not hoppin’ anymore.

              with somebody near you, somebody near you, somebody near you.
              with somebody near you, somebody next to you.
Scratch the back of somebody near you, somebody near you, somebody near you
Scratch the back of somebody near you, somebody next to you.

Say, “Hi.” Now wave “Bye.” 
This game is gonna end, someday we can play again.
