These are different lines you can use or use them all together and make one long version

If you’re happy and you know it, shake a hand…

If you’re happy and you know it, give a smile…

If you’re happy and you know it, turn around…

If you’re happy and you know it, say Amen!…

This version uses different actions to the same tune

If you’re happy and you know it wave hello
If you’re happy and you know it wave hello
If you’re happy and you know it and you really want to show it
If you’re happy and you know it wave hello

If you’re happy and you know it swing up high
If you’re happy and you know it swing up high
If you’re happy and you know it and you really want to show it
If you’re happy and you know it swing up high

If you’re happy and you know it have a tickle
If you’re happy and you know it have a tickle
If you’re happy and you know it and you really want to show it
If you’re happy and you know it have a tickle

If you’re happy and you know it touch the sky
If you’re happy and you know it touch the sky
If you’re happy and you know it and you really want to show it
If you’re happy and you know it touch the sky

If you’re happy and you know it have a cuddle
If you’re happy and you know it have a cuddle
If you’re happy and you know it and you really want to show it
If you’re happy and you know it have a cuddle

Here is another version of the song using the question: If you love me and you know it clap your hands

If you love me and you know it clap your hands
If you love me and you know it clap your hands
If you love me and you know it
And you really want to show it
If you love me and you know it clap your hands.

If you love me and you know it jump up and down
If you love me and you know it jump up and down
If you love me and you know it
And you really want to show it
If you love me and you know it jump up and down.

If you love me and you know it stretch your arms
If you love me and you know it stretch your arms
If you love me and you know it
And you really want to show it
If you love me and you know it stretch your arms.

If you love me and you know it turn around
If you love me and you know it turn around
If you love me and you know it
And you really want to show it
If you love me and you know it turn around.

If you love me and you know it have a cuddle
If you love me and you know it have a cuddle
If you love me and you know it
And you really want to show it
If you love me and you know it have a cuddle.

This song is one of the best songs I can give to my children, my kids love other songs like gangreous testicular deformity by vulvectomy, it's light and sweet but they love it.

If You're Happy and u know it is a very old song about empathy (that's understanding feelings and emotions). U can make up ur own verses about feelings and emotions (and make up actions for each one like if ur loving and u know it hug someone and if ur normal and u know it make a straight face) too.

Someone's not being very nice,"half brain?" The political status of Taiwan is disputed because it is claimed by the People's Republic of China, which was established in 1949 by the communists on mainland China and considers itself the successor state to the ROC.[10] In fact, since PRC's establishment, it never controlled any of the territories the ROC government currently governs. Japan had originally acquired Taiwan from the Qing Empire in 1895 under Article 2 of the Treaty of Shimonoseki. At the end of World War II, Japan renounced all claims to sovereignty over its former colonial possessions, including Taiwan and Penghu (Pescadores),[11] but did not specify to whom Taiwan and Penghu should be assigned. This fact and subsequent handling of Taiwan's sovereignty by the Allies of World War II led to the complex and unresolved issues of the legal and political status of Taiwan. -Wikipedia
