Song Lyrics

Wiggle Time! (album)

Get ready to wiggle, we've been ready for so long
Get ready to wiggle, when you wiggle, you can't go wrong
Get ready to wiggle, wiggle will make you big and strong
Get ready to wiggle, c'mon, wiggle to this song, wiggle to this song

CHORUS

We're ready to wiggle, wiggle your fingers high in the sky
We're ready to wiggle, wiggle your ears and wiggle your eyes
We're ready to wiggle, wiggle your hair and wiggle your nose
We're ready to wiggle, c'mon wiggle all ten toes, wiggle all ten toes

We can wiggle and wiggle, wiggle at home without a care
Wiggle and wiggle, wiggle on your own or with teddy bear
Wiggle and wiggle, wiggle at breakfast, lunch or tea
Wiggle and wiggle, wiggle along with me, wiggle along with me

Taking Off!

"Okay, everybody, get ready to wiggle! It's wiggle time! Let's see you dancing, wiggle!"
