Transition songs/brain breaks

I'm looking for a few new silly songs with motions (quick and easy, though) to use during transitions and for brain breaks this year. What are some of your favorites. A couple of my oldies:

Gray Squirrel
Gray squirrel (arms stretched overhead on "gray" and bend over to touch toes on squirrel)
Gray squirrel (arms stretched overhead on "gray" and bend over to touch toes on squirrel)
Shake that bushy tail (stick your "tail" out and shake it)
Shake that bushy tail (stick your "tail" out and shake it)

Popcorn kernels
(tune of Frère Jacques)
Popcorn kernels, popcorn kernels
In the pot, in the pot (crouched down to make a ball--a kernel in the pot)
Shake 'em, shake 'em, shake 'em (wiggle and shake while still crouched down)
'Till they pop, 'till they pop! (Jump up and "pop")

One of our favorites is Open, Shut them:

Open, shut them.
Open, shut them.
Give a little clap.

Open, shut them
Open, shut them.
Place them in your lap.

Creep them, creep them,
Creep them, creep them,
Right up to your chin.

Open up your little mouth,
But do not let them in.

We also like Put Your Hands in the Air (to the tune of If You're Happy and You Know It)

Put your hands in the air and give a clap,
Put your hands in the air and give a clap,
Put your hands in the air and wiggle them over there,
Put your hands in the air and give a clap.

Before the song we decide who we're going to 'air tickle' and then that person gets to choose for the next round.
