Lyrics

I’m gonna reach up high and sing out loud.
I’m gonna jump and clap coz I feel real proud.
Hang about - hang about
Arms out - arms out
Tofa tafa tofa tafa tofa tafa.
I said tofa tafa tofa tafa tofa tafa!

I’m gonna reach up high and sing out loud.
I’m gonna jump and clap coz I feel real proud.
Hang about - hang about
Arms out - arms out
Thumbs up - thumbs up
Tofa tafa tofa tafa tofa tafa.
I said tofa tafa tofa tafa tofa tafa!

I’m gonna reach up high and sing out loud.
I’m gonna jump and clap coz I feel real proud.
Hang about - hang about
