Si yo pongo mis dos manos para arriba is a rhyme that children learn in preschool in Latin America. The actions perfectly reinforce the meaning of the words and it is an easy rhyme for little children to learn.

This is an excellent video of the Spanish rhyme Si yo pongo. The images exactly correspond to the words and the audio is clear and slow. The words are on the screen, but I included them below with a translation.

Si yo pongo mis dos manos para arriba, / If I put my two hands up
mis dos manos tocan el cielo. / my two hands touch the sky.
Si yo pongo mis dos manos para abajo, / If I put my two hands down,
mis dos manos tocan el suelo. / my two hands touch the ground

Arriba, arriba, el cielo, / Up, up, the sky
abajo, abajo, el suelo. / down, down the ground.
Mis dos manos dicen chau, / My two hands say goodbye
y se van a descansar. / and go to rest.

Adriana is a singer from Argentina. She sings Si yo pongo and you can download the song from Amazon.
