Hokey Pokey Elmo is a 2003 Sesame Street storybook in which Elmo does "The Hokey Pokey" with all his friends.As the cover notes, the book was a tie-in to the Hokey Pokey Elmo toy.

The traditional lyrics are varied both in terms of what is "put in", and by suggesting alternatives to the line "and you shake it all about", such as "curtsey all about". The verses include:

  • Left Foot (Ernie)
  • Right Cookie (Cookie Monster)
  • Two Hands (The Count)
  • Tail Feathers (Big Bird)
  • Do the Pigeon, flap it all about (Bert)
  • Head, look all about (Oscar)
  • Take a big leap, curtsey all about (Zoe)
  • Swing your partner, do-si-do about (Elmo and Zoe)
  • Skip Skip, whoops! skip all about (Grover)
  • Whole self, dance all about (everyone)

The Twiddlebugs and Bernice also appear.
