“It’s really kind of an ear worm right, it just repeats and repeats and repeats,” Emily Munro from the Children’s Museum of Manhattan told CBS2’s Cindy Hsu.

The song has even hit the music charts in the U.K. at number 37 – higher than Cardi B’s song “I like it.”
“It’s a great movement break because it gets the kids moving around,” preschool teacher Holly Casper said. “It works on a lot of gross motor, fine motor skills as well.”
