The Grand Old Duke of York

You can all march round as you sing this one. Make sure everyone knows which way they’re going. You can do it through three times; at normal speed, slowly and fast. Claves work well, too, clicking them up, down or in the middle as directed. You can also do it sitting down with your knees up in front of you and a teddy bear marching up to your knees and down again.
Oh the grand old Duke of York.
He had ten thousand men.
He marched them up to the top of the hill.
And he marched them down again.
And when they were up they were up.
And when they were down they were down.
And when they were only half-way up,
They were neither up nor down.
