Song: Auntie Monica

  • Print

Oh I have an auntie, an Auntie Monica
And when she goes shopping they all say "Ooh-lala!"
Because her feathers swinging, her feather's swinging so
Because her feathers swinging, her feather's swinging so

Oh I have an auntie, an Auntie Monica
And when she goes shopping they all say "Ooh-lala!"
Because her hat is swinging,
Because her hat is swinging, her hat is swinging so,
Because her feathers swinging, her feather's swinging so
Because her feathers swinging, her feather's swinging so

Other Verses:
Because her muff is swinging, her muff is swinging so...
Because her skirts are swinging, her skirts are swinging so...
Because my aunt is swinging, my aunt is swinging so...

Actions:
feather swinging: wave hand back and forth above head
hat swinging: using both hands, swing an invisible wide-brimmed hat
muff swinging: hands together in front of you, swing arms
skirts swinging: sway invisible skirts around y our legs
aunt swinging: swing your whole body!
