Arabic ‘Head, Shoulders, Tummy & Feet’ Nursery Rhyme {Resource}

I love to use the nursery rhyme Head, Shoulders, Knees & Toes when I do Arabic story time at the public library.

However in Arabic it is sung in a slightly different manner and instead of ‘knees and toes’, it is ‘tummy and feet’. The song also includes hands between the first and second verse..

To help with the sing song rhythm, the song makes the body parts possessive, so it’s “my head, my shoulders”, etc.

Here is how it is sung in Arabic.

 Rasy
Katafy
Batny
Qadumy
Wa
Yaday
Wa
Adhny
Fumy
Anfy
Eaynay
My head 
My shoulders
My tummy
My foot
And
My hands
And
My ear
My mouth
My nose
My eyes

The song can be sung several times, trying to go faster each time. You can download the song here.
