Johnny Works With One Hammer

Song Video

Lyrics

Johnny works with one hammer, one hammer one hammer
Johnny works with one hammer, Johnny works with two.

(Children now hammer with two hands)
Johnny works with two hammers two hammers two hammers
Johnny works with two hammers
Johnny works with three.

(Children use two hands and one leg to hammer)
Johnny works with three hammers three hammers three hammers
Johnny works with three hammers
Johnny works with four.

(children use both hands and both legs)
Johnny works with four hammers four hammers four hammers
Johnny works with four hammers
Johnny works with five.

(Children use both hands, both legs, and head to "hammer with")
Johnny works with five hammers five hammers five hammers
Johnny works with five hammers
Johnny's work is DONE!
