ARM ACTIONS : During the chorus we can spell out the letters “D”, “I” and “Y” using our arms.
“Letter D” Lift your right arm up so that the upper portion goes straight up. The lower portion of your right arm should curve over your head and meet your left arm which should be curving upwards.
“Letter I” Point right arm or both arms together directly upwards.
“Letter Y” Point both arms up diagonally. Think of YMCA.
