♫ Let's take a picture, you and me. [Pretend to take a picture, then point to the others and then yourself.]
Look at the camera. 1, 2, 3. [Point to your pretend camera and then count to three with your fingers.]
Let's take a picture, you and me. [Pretend to take a picture, then point to the others and then yourself.]
Look at the camera. Say, "Cheese!" [Point to your pretend camera and then make a big smiley face.]

Okay...let's make a happy face.
Ready?
Cheese! [Everybody moves in close together. Pose with a happy face. Press the button on your pretend camera when you hear the camera sound.]

Let's take a picture, you and me.
Look at the camera. 1, 2, 3
Let's take a picture, you and me.
Look at the camera. Say, "Cheese!"

Okay, okay. This time, let's make a funny face.
Ready? [Everybody poses with a funny face.]

Let's take a picture, you and me.
Look at the camera. 1, 2, 3
Let's take a picture, you and me.
Look at the camera. Say, "Cheese!"

Okay, okay. This time, let's make a scary monster face.

You and me.
1, 2, 3.
Say, "Cheese!" ♫
