Here are the candles

Enjoy this tickle-puff rhyme to celebrate a birthday or to play on any day of the year. Wiggle your fingers for the candles. Tickle-puff your baby's hair or baby's fingers. Yum yum yum, rub baby's tum. Bigger babies and toddlers can hold up their own fingers for you to blow out.

Here are the candles Red, white and blue, To put on a birthday cake for you. Now take a deep breath ~ Get ready to blow:

Ffff ffff fffffff Out they go!

The rhyme comes from Playsongs. Stream the audio here:
