Description

It's "If You're Happy And You Know It" Practice the emotions happy, angry, scared, and sleepy with this super fun song for kids.

Question: Why don't you sing "If you're happy and you know it clap your hands"?
Answer: The traditional version of this song can be a little tough for younger learners. If you pay a visit to a nursery school, preschool, or children's ESL/EFL classroom you'll often hear some children singing something like:

If you're happy (mumble, mumble, mumble) clap your hands!
If you're happy (mumble, mumble, mumble) clap your hands!
If you're happy (mumble, mumble, mumble),
(mumble, mumble, mumble)
If you're happy (mumble, mumble, mumble) clap your hands!

The tempo is often too quick and phrases like "and you know it" and "then your face will surely show it" aren't easy for young children to sing or understand through gestures and expressions. Since we like to use this song to teach emotions, we've slowed it down a little and simplified the lyrics to just the emotions and the body language that express those emotions. This version allows even very young kids to sing all the lyrics and act them out with gestures.
