(learned at my mother's knee in 1940s)

(music to go here)

Eensy weensy spider climbed a waterspout.
    (thumbs and forefingers touch and climb)
Down came the rain and washed the spider out.
    (open palms wave downward)
Out came the sun and dried up all the rain.
    (open palms move upward and outward)
Eensy weensy spider climbed up the spout again.
    (thumbs and forefingers again)

(from miriam berg's folksong collection)
