The Spanish Song "Saco una manita" made into a Hello Song

A teacher in Spain has taken a well-known Spanish kids song called Saco una manita and turned it into a Hello Song.  You can hear her version below.  After the video you’ll find the Spanish lyrics with an English translation. Enjoy! –Mama Lisa

Saco una manita (Buenos días)
(Spanish)

Saco una manita,
La hago bailar,
La cierro, la abro
y digo "buenos días"
y la vuelvo a su lugar.

Saco la otra manita,
la hago bailar,
La cierro, la abro
y digo "buenos días"
y la vuelvo a su lugar.

Saco las dos manitas,
las hago bailar,
las cierro, las abro
y digo "buenos días"
y las vuelvo a su lugar.

English Translation:

I Take a Little Hand Out (Hello Song)

I take a little hand out,
I make it dance,
I close it, I open it
and say, "Good day"
and put it back in its place.

I take the other little hand out,
I make it dance,
I close it, I open it
and say, "Good day"
and put it back in its place.

I take two little hands out,
I make them dance,
I close them, I open them
and say, "Good day"
And put them back in their place.
