TO START:

Children form into a circle,
with one child in center as 'Punchinello.'

VERSE 1:

'Punchinello' does an action --
hopping on one foot, twirling, etc. --
while the children sing.


What can you do,
Punchinello, funny fellow?
What can you do,
Punchinello, funny you?


VERSE 2:

Children in circle copy the
action that Punchinello is doing.


We can do it, too,
Punchinello, funny fellow,
We can do it, too,
Punchinello, funny you!


VERSE 3:

Punchinello selects another child
as Punchinello, then takes that
child's place in the circle.


You choose one of us,
Punchinello, funny fellow,
You choose one of us,
Punchinello, funny you!
