In the Woods There Stands a House

In the Woods There Stands a House

In the woods there stands a house
I looked from my window out
Saw a rabbit in distress
Running in alarm
"Help me, help me, Sir," he cried,
"From the hunter I must hide,
Won't you let me come inside
Keep me safe and warm."

Each line has a motion, usually two handed:
  house: draw square
  looked: shade eyes
  rabbit: two handed ears
  running: churn front paws
  help me: fling hands out from center
  hunter: two guns
  let me (in): knock
  safe and warm: hand strokes fist

repeat faster and faster until you lose it
