If You’re a Unicorn and You Know It

If you’re a unicorn and you know it, shake your horn,

If you’re a unicorn and you know it, shake your horn,

If you’re a unicorn and you know it, and you really want to show it,

If you’re a unicorn and you know it, shake your horn.

Stomp your hooves…

Toss your mane…

Twitch your tail…

Prance around…

One Little, Two Little, Three Little Unicorns

One little, two little, three little unicorns;

four little, five little, six little unicorns;

seven little, eight little, nine little unicorns;

ten little unicorns prancing.

(hold up a finger for each unicorn; wiggle all ten for the “prancing!”)

I’m a Shiny Unicorn

(Tune: “I’m a Little Teapot”)

I’m a shiny unicorn, don’t you pout

Here is my horn, sticking right out!

When I get all silly, hear me shout!

And see sparkles as I trot about!

Unicorn, Unicorn

Unicorn, unicorn touch your toes.

Unicorn, unicorn touch your nose.

Unicorn, unicorn pat your head.

Unicorn, unicorn go to bed.

Unicorn, unicorn wake up now.

Unicorn, unicorn take a bow.

Unicorn, unicorn touch the ground.

Unicorn, unicorn turn around.

Unicorn, unicorn sit back down.

Unicorn, unicorn don’t make a sound.

Five Magic Unicorns

(Tune: “Five Green and Speckled Frogs”)

Five magic unicorns

Yes, they have shiny horns

Looking so sparkly and bright (shi-ny!)

One trotted far away

So she could prance and play,

Now there are just four unicorns (neigh-neigh!)

Four magic unicorns...

Three magic unicorns...

Two magic unicorns...

One magic unicorn...

The Legs on the Unicorn

(Tune: “The Wheels on the Bus”)

The legs on the unicorn run real fast

Run real fast, run real fast

The legs on the unicorn run real fast

All day long!

The tail on the unicorn goes swish swish swish...

The mane on the unicorn blows in the wind...

The horn on the unicorn points at you!...
