Two Little Penguins

Two little penguins sitting on the ice.
(Hold up both index fingers)
One bows once, the other bows twice.
(Make index fingers bow)
Waddle little penguins.
Waddle away.
(Put fingers behind back)
Come back penguins.
Time to play.
(Bring fingers to the front)
 

If You're a Penguin, And You Know It
(If You are Happy...)

If you're a penguin and you know it, flap your wings
If you're a penguin and you know it, flap your wings
If you're a penguin and you know it and you really want to show it
If you're a penguin and you know it, flap your wings

Additional verses:
Waddle your feet....
Swim, swim, swim...
Eat a fish, yum, yum, yum
(rub your belly)
