Do the Penguin Shuffle

2 minutes

(girl) "Do the Penguin Shuffle." Come with me to visit some animals. We'll get a look from their ears to their ends. The way animals move seems like music to me. These creatures are special. I hope you'll agree. Watch the penguin waltz with my slow beat. He sways to the music as he shuffles his feet.

See the smiling sloth climb with the three-clawed toes? Her rhythm is steady as she stops to doze. boing, boing The beat gets faster with the kangaroo's hop. He's off to the outback, no time to stop. The elephant moves to the same beat today. She swings her long trunk, for fun the next way. When a gorilla goes walking, the beat gets faster. In the world of the jungle, he's a dancing master. That beat is like a swift trot of a fox. Swish, swish goes her tail. Now our music rocks. Accessibility provided by the U.S. Department of Education.
