Nursery Rhyme Hokey Pokey with Lyrics and Music

Hokey Pokey - Nursery rhyme - Music, tune and lyrics

Hokey Pokey is a popular children's song and dance. It has a very catchy melody, and doing the dance is great fun (for both kids and parents...)

The Hokey Pokey dance became popular in the USA in the 1950s (when rock'n'roll became popular). And it has been a true classic ever since.

Dance moves: How to do the Hokey Pokey dance? Well, it's quite easy! Form a big circle on the floor. Then the dance simply follows the "instructions" given in the song (lyrics). When you sing "You put your right foot in", you simply put your right foot in! Simple as that...

Babies: You can also do the Hokey Pokey dance with babies/infants. Place the baby in your lap and do the movements "with" the baby's body. When you sing "you put your right foot in", then put the baby`s right foot in, and so on...

Don't you remember the Hokey Pokey tune? No problem at all! You can listen to "Hokey Pokey" at the bottom of this page. Lucky for you...

Hokey Pokey - Lyrics
You put your right foot in
You put your right foot out
You put your right foot in
And you shake it all about
You do the Hokey Pokey and you turn yourself around
That`s what it`s all about!

You put your left foot in
You put your left foot out
You put your left foot in
And you shake it all about
You do the Hokey Pokey and you turn yourself around
That`s what it`s all about!


You put your right hand in
You put your right hand out
You put your right hand in
And you shake it all about
You do the Hokey Pokey and you turn yourself around
That`s what it`s all about!


You put your left hand in
You put your left hand out
You put your left hand in
And you shake it all about
You do the Hokey Pokey and you turn yourself around
That`s what it`s all about!


You put your head in
You put your head out
You put your head in
And you shake it all about
You do the Hokey Pokey and you turn yourself around
That`s what it`s all about!


You put your whole self in
You put your whole self out
You put your whole self in
And you shake it all about
You do the Hokey Pokey and you turn yourself around
That`s what it`s all about! 


Tip: You can also make up your own verses! What about "You put your hips in"? Or knees? Or maybe toes? Good luck!
