Intro song (Tune: Did You Ever See A Lassie?):
The more we read together
Together, together
The more we read together
The happier we’ll be
Cause your friends are my friends
And my friends are your friends
The more we read together
The happier we’ll be

Transition song:
Do your ears hang low? (hold hands with the palms against your ears, fingertips down)
Do they wobble to and fro? (wiggle fingers, shake head)
Can you tie ’em in a knot? (tie an invisible knot with your hands)
Can you tie ’em in a bow? (draw an invisible bow with fingers)
Can you throw ’em over your shoulder (motion throwing something over your left shoulder)
Like a continental soldier? (salute)
Do your ears hang low? (hold hands with the palms against your ears, fingertips down)

Goodbye song (Tune: London Bridge is Falling Down):

Say goodbye, say goodbye,
Now it’s time to say goodbye,
I’ll see you next time.
