Brow Bender

Melody -

Brow bender,
Eye peeper,
Nose dreeper,
Mouth eater,
Chin chopper,
Knock at the door,
Ring the bell,
Lift up the latch,
Walk in ...
Take a chair,
Sit by there,
How d'you do this morning?

As the words are repeated, a finger is laid successively on the baby's forehead, eyes, nose, mouth, and chin. While saying 'knock at the door', the chin is tickled; 'ring the bell', the hair or ear pulled; 'lift up the latch and walk in', the baby's nose is raised and a finger is popped in the mouth.
