Song Lyrics

Get ready to wiggle, we've been ready for so long
Get ready to wiggle, when you wiggle, you can't go wrong
Get ready to wiggle, wiggle will make you big and strong
Get ready to wiggle, c'mon, wiggle to this song, wiggle to this song


We're ready to wiggle, wiggle your fingers high in the sky
We're ready to wiggle, wiggle your ears and wiggle your eyes
We're ready to wiggle, wiggle your hair and wiggle your nose
We're ready to wiggle, c'mon wiggle all ten toes, wiggle all ten toes

We can wiggle and wiggle, wiggle at home without a care
Wiggle and wiggle, wiggle on your own or with teddy bear
Wiggle and wiggle, wiggle at breakfast, lunch or tea
Wiggle and wiggle, wiggle along with me, wiggle along with me

<poem> "Okay, everybody, get ready to wiggle! It's wiggle time! Let's see you dancing, wiggle!"

Get ready to wiggle! (Shooby-dooby-doo) We've been ready for so long! Get ready to wiggle! (Shooby-dooby-doo) When you wiggle, you can't go wrong! Get ready to wiggle! (Shooby-dooby-doo) Wiggle will make you big and strong! Get ready to wiggle! (Shooby-dooby-doo) "C'mon!" Wiggle to this song! Wiggle to this song!

(Shooby-dooby-doo) Wiggle your hair and wiggle your nose! We're ready to wiggle! (Shooby-dooby-doo) "Wiggle your toes!" Wiggle all ten toes "Gee, cmon!" Wiggle all ten toes!

"Big jumps, everybody, c'mon." Ba-da-ba-ba-bada "Big jump, c'mon!" Ba-da-ba-ba-bada "Gee, c'mon!" Ba-da-ba-ba-bada "Big jump now!"

Lyric Variations


"Let's get ready to Wiggle!" (2006 only)
Get ready to Wiggle,好久沒有扭扭扭
Get ready to Wiggle,扭扭扭心裡好快樂
Get ready to Wiggle,扭扭讓你長高長大
Get ready to Wiggle,跟著大家扭扭扭,大家扭扭扭

Ba-dum-bum-bum, ba-da-ba-da
Ba-dum-bum-bum, ba-da-ba-da
Ba-dum-bum-bum, ba-da-ba-da

We're ready to Wiggle,動動手指像那㗅蝶
We're ready to Wiggle,拉拉耳朵也轉轉眼珠
We're ready to Wiggle,捲捲頭髮也皺皺鼻子
We're ready to Wiggle,讓你腳趾動起來,腳趾動起來


We can Wiggle and Wiggle,隨時隨地都扭扭跳
Wiggle and Wiggle,小熊也來扭扭跳一跳
Wiggle and Wiggle,早也扭扭晚也扭扭
Wiggle and Wiggle,和我一起扭扭,就是這樣! 和我一起扭扭

Ba-dum-bum-bum, ba-da-ba-da
Ba-dum-bum-bum, ba-da-ba-da
Ba-dum-bum-bum, ba-da-ba-da
"Wiggle, wiggle, wiggle, wiggle, wiggle!" (2006 only)
