Los meneos
Spanish Song Lyrics and Sound Clip
Jim Nailon

Vocal      Instrumental
This song is available on Jim Nailon's "Canciones de mi clase II"

Teaching tips from Jim Nailon: 
This song teaches body parts and left/right. During the chorus, we clap with the music and roll our shoulders to the words "los meneos." During the verses, each successive body part (v1: hair, eyes, nose - v2: arm, hand, fingers - v3: leg, foot, toes) is moved or wiggled as it is sung. The teacher must turn his or her back to the students when singing and modeling the actions for verses 2 and 3 in order to establish the left/right connection. I have my students remain in their seats for this one, where it is easier for them to do the actions. I remain standing, but find something to hold on to for verse 3.

Yo tengo los meneos
Yo tengo los meneos
Y no puedo estarme quieto(a)
Porque yo tengo los meneos

1. En mi cabeza meneo el pelo,
Meneo los ojos, meneo la nariz.
En mi cabeza meneo el pelo,
Meneo los ojos, meneo la nariz, porque (Yo tengo …)

2. A la derecha meneo los dedos,
Meneo la mano, meneo el brazo.
A la izquierda meneo los dedos,
Meneo la mano, meneo el brazo, porque (Yo tengo …)

3. A la derecha meneo la pierna,
Meneo el pie, meneo los dedos del pie.
A la izquierda meneo la pierna,
Meneo el pie, meneo los dedos del pie porque (Yo tengo …)
