Big Red Car / Here Comes the Big Red Car

19 Do the Flap

Lyrics

First you put your hands up

Then you put them down

You put them up again

And you shake them all around

Let's go high (High!)

Let's go low (Low!)

And guess what? (What?)

We're doing the flap now

We're doing the F L A P

CHORUS
We're doing the flap (Doing the flap)

We're doing the flap (Doing the flap now)

We're doing the flap (Doing the flap)

We're doing the flap (Doing the flap now)

You put your hands up

Then you put them down

You put them up again

And you turn around

Let's go high (High!)

Let's go low (Low!)

And guess what? (What?)

We're doing the flap 

We're doing the F L A P

CHORUS

(instrumental break)

F L A P

CHORUS

Let's roll our arms up now

Until we roll them down

Roll them to the side

Then you roll them all around

You roll high (High!)

You roll low (Low!)

Then guess what? (What?)

We're doing the flap now

We're doing the F L A P

We've done the flap
