Baby Bumblebee
Im bringing home a baby bumblebee Wont my Mommie be so proud of me? Im bringing home a baby bumblebee Ouch, it stung me Im squashing up my baby bumblebee Wont my Mommie be so proud of me? Im squashing up my baby bumblebee Ew, what a mess Im licking up my baby bumblebee Wont my Mommie be so proud of me? Im licking up my baby bumblebee Ugh, I feel sick Im barng up my baby bumblebee Wont my Mommie be so proud of me? Im barng up my baby bumblebee Oh, another mess Im mopping up my baby bumblebee Wont my Mommie be so proud of me? Im mopping up my baby bumblebee Mommie, arent you proud of me?
Verse 3 While singing hands are pretended to be licked keeping the hands at and moving them with a sweeping motion down in front of the mouth, in time to the music. Movement stops with Ugh as sick faces are shown and stomachs are held. Verse 4 While still holding stomachs, bob up and down from the waist, in time to the music, to simulate barng. When the Oh sounds, more work faces are worn. Verse 5 With mops in hand, scrub the oor in time to the music. When the Mommie is reached, mops are held upright and to the side with the other hand on the hip and the head turned a little on its side.

Actions
Verse 1 Hands are cupped together as if carrying a captured bee. You walk in place and swings hands back and forth as you sing, in time to the music, until you get to the exclamation (ouch). Here you stop all movement to emphasize the statement, with an appropriate pained face. Verse 2 Hands are mashed together, back and forth in time to the music, as if squashing the bee. Again movement stops with exclamation (ew) as hands are looked at with icky faces.
