This is a version of “Heads, shoulders, knees and toes” with the same amount of manic bending and stretching.
Tony = toe knee
Chestnut = upper body, head
Knows = nose
I = eye
Love = cross your arms across your body, putting you hands on your shoulders
You = point to someone else
Keep an absolutely straight face for chestnut and there shouldn’t be any trouble – best to know your class quite well before you do this song so you know where to glare if you think someone will try to be clever. I also do this song standing up; I had to bring this part of the lesson to an abrupt end on the only occasion when I did it sitting down, as one of the more brazen year three children thought of a different gesture for “nuts”…
fore-warned is fore-armed, as they say.
Once you’ve got the hang of the song and the movements you can sing the song faster, and also start missing out various words, while still pointing to that bit of the body. (I recommend getting rid of toes and knees pretty early on if you don’t like doing all that bending and standing up!).
