#### The Shapes Song

Square, Circle, Triangle
Lyrics:
I'm a square. I have 4 sides. I'm a square. I have 4 sides.
We are squares. We have 4 sides. 1 2 3 4. We are squares.

I'm a circle. I go round and round. I'm a circle. I go round and round.
We are circles. We go round and round. Round and round, we are circles.

I'm a triangle. I have 3 sides. I'm a triangle. I have 3 sides.
We are triangles. We have 3 sides. 1 2 3 - we are triangles.

We are shapes. You see us everywhere. We are shapes. You see us everywhere.
We are shapes. You see us everywhere.

Just look around, we are everywhere.
