Lyrics:

We’re bouncing and we’re bouncing
 and we bounce and bounce and stop……  (Fast Bounce)

We’re bouncing and we’re bouncing
 and we bounce and bounce and stop…… (Fast Bounce)

Up and down and up and Down and then go side to side…… (Knees up and Down together, then one knee, other knee)

We’re bumping and we’re bouncing on this silly lapride. (Fast bounce or alternate legs fast)
