Lyrics and Actions[edit]

Tickle variant[edit]

What do we do with a sleepy [child's name],
What do we do with a sleepy [child's name],
What do we do with a sleepy [child's name],
Early in the morning.

Take her and wake her and tickle her all over, (tickle child)
Take her and wake her and tickle her all over, (tickle child)
Take her and wake her and tickle her all over, (tickle child)
Early in the morning.

Heave ho and up she rises, (lift child in the air)
Heave ho and up she rises, (lift child in the air)
Heave ho and up she rises, (lift child in the air)
Early in the morning.
