Lyrics:

Get down, get funky, get loose and move to the beat
Get your whole body movin’
And start with your feet
Your feet, 2, 3, 4
Get down, get funky, get loose and move to the beat
Get your whole body movin’
And start with your knees
Your knees, 2, 3, 4
Your feet 2, 3, 4
Get down, get funky, get loose and move to the beat
Get your whole body movin’
And start with your hips
Your hips, 2, 3, 4
Your knees, 2, 3, 4
Your feet, 2, 3, 4

(Builds up each time and uses the following body parts moving when mentioned)
Feet
Knees
Hips
Elbows (“bows”)
Shoulders
Head (“dome”)
(Smile/teeth can be added – slang used is “grill” – use as appropriate based on population)

Notes: Lyrics can be used in an almost “chant” manner or singing with variations with the tempo. This application uses a song that is very layered. The format thus allows for variations and changes depending on need of client(s). Also, MTS can have clients offer suggestions and add different movements.
