Action Song Color Rhyme
by Jean Warren 
If your clothes have any red
Put your finger on your head
If your clothes have any blue
Put your finger on your shoe.
If your clothes have any green
Wave your hand so you’ll be seen
If your clothes have any yellow,
Smile like a happy fellow.
If your clothes have any brown,
Turn your smile into a frown.
If your clothes have any black,
Put your hands behind your back.
If your clothes have any white,
Clap your hands with all your might.
