Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes

Children’s song, U.K.

“Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes” is a children’s song sung to the tune of the traditional folk song “There is a Tavern in the Town”, which first appeared in the 1883 edition of William H. Hill’s Student Songs.

Kids love “Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes” because they can play with something they know well, the parts of the human body. Throughout this song, the four parts of the human body mentioned are gradually substituted by a sound (the sound of a percussion instrument, a clap or the any other body-generated sound).

Teaching idea and activities

As the text goes on, a word corresponding to a part of the body is replaced by a rest. Finally, the motif of the rests looks like this:

Rests

Four children with different percussion instruments or other sounds (hands, foots, fingers, or objects like table, chair, etc.) play in place for every part of the body.

They start with one sound and four words that they sing, and gradually they just play five sounds at the corresponding verse.

A similar activity you can do for the song “Bingo Song”.
