This is often sung at scout jamborees. It's fun, but it takes some practice!
My Hat, It Has Three Corners
My hat, it has three corners,
Three corners has my hat,
And had it not three corners,
It would not be my hat.

This song is usually repeated five times, with specific gestures accompanying each repetition. Each gesture is associated with a word in the song.
For the word 'my', point to your body.
For the word 'hat', point to your head.
For the word 'three', hold up three fingers in your hand.
For the word 'corner', press your fist to your shoulder and use your other hand to point to your elbow.
For the first repetition, sing all the words and make all the gestures.
For the second repetition, remain silent during the word 'my' and make the appropriate gesture.
For the third repetition, remain silent during the words 'my' and 'hat' and make the appropriate gestures.
For the fourth repetition, remain silent during the words 'my', 'hat', and 'three' and make the appropriate gestures.
For the fifth repetition, remain silent during the words 'my', 'hat', 'three' and 'corners' and make the appropriate gestures.
