An English kids song with family member names

Fun and Easy Song about Families for Children and ESL Students. By The Magic Crayons
Einstein Class (2012) sing a song about families. This is his 4-6 year old class of students and Bilinga International Science, Tokyo, Japan.
In Japan children learn family members by fingers... so Daddy is thumb, Mummy is first finger and so on, to the baby small finger. Teachers note: be careful how you model "brother".
The action for each family name is to stand like a cowboy or cowgirl and "shoot" the answer at the teacher. The students all knew Woody and Jessica from Toy Story, so quite straightforward.
As you can see this song is great ESL/EFL vocabulary for children and young learners of English.
I hope you have as much fun with this song as we did !

Artist: The Magic Crayons
Song: Mothers Little Shokka
Lyrics:
Where Is Daddy? x2
