Let children get partners to hand jive with. Allow them to set their own pattern for the chorus
part of song. When it gets to the part where languages are said, have them keep a light beat on
their thighs and repeat the words. Go back to hand jive when chorus comes back.
Children can add other languages.
Goodbye to you my little friend.
Goodbye to you. I’ll see you again.
It doesn’t matter where you’re from.
Let’s sing goodbye to everyone.
You take your little hand wave bye, bye, bye.
