This song is great to get some of the wiggles out before a listening activity. Start by passing out imaginary bottles of glue. Have the children "glue" body parts together when instructed by the song. The only way they can come unglued is to hear the magic word "Abracadabra." At the end of the song the children glue their hands to their mouths and no one can say the magic word. I have a sign that I hold up that says "Abracadabra." Then I congratulate the children on being able to read such a big word.
