A circle is a shape that goes round. Tiptoe slowly on the circle and go round. Tiptoe slowly on the circle and go round. Tiptoe slowly on the circle, And go round and round and round. Tiptoe slowly on the circle and go round. Right Circle, Left Square Close my eyes, shut them tight, Make a circle with my right. Keep them shut, make it fair, With my left hand, make a square.
