This is a game song. The instructions are below the lyrics. Each number corresponds to a mime explained in the instructions.

Notes

*There's a variation:

Juan Periquito va
Dos periquitos van


Which, really, makes more sense, considering the next verse.

Game Instructions

The children go in a line, miming the song, first sauntering, and then they crouch every time the song tells them to crouch.

(1) They raise one finger.
(2) They raise two fingers.
(3) Hands over heart.
(4) Point to heaven.
