Wheels Come Alive (Turning Wheels)

Rated:

Sing and Learn the Actions!

Lyrics

Have a look around,
so many wheels abound.
Wheels keep turning, wheels keep turning,
round and around and around!

Big wheels, small wheels, tiny cute wheels.
Wide wheels, thin wheels, colourful wheels.
Wheels to get us off the ground,
wheels keep turning round and round,
round and round like a merry-go round!

Have a look around,
so many wheels abound.
Wheels keep turning, wheels keep turning,
round and around and around!

Tall wheels, small wheels, quiet little wheels.
Hard wheels, soft wheels, noisy, loud wheels.
Wheels that sing and dance and jive.
Wheels that make the world come ALIVE!
Round and round like a merry-go round.

Have a look around,
so many wheels abound.
Wheels keep turning, wheels keep turning,
round and around and around!

Wheels that sing and dance and jive.
Wheels that make the world come ALIVE!
Round and round like a merry-go round!

Have a look around,
so many wheels abound.
Wheels keep turning, wheels keep turning,
round and around and around!
Big ones, small ones, tiny ones too.
Wheels turning round and round!
