Head and shoulders

רֹאשׁ כְּתֵפַ֫יִם
בִּרְכַּ֫יִם אֶצְבָּעוֹת
ברכים אצבעות
ברכים אצבעות
ראש כתפים
ברכים אצבעות
עֵינַ֫יִם אָזְנַ֫יִם
פֶּה אַף

Now just get the right 'and' with each and you have a new head and shoulders song. Review of all body parts see here.

see the later post which includes some changes in the underlay - the song is quite fun to sing - do the movements too
