What does he hear? What does he see? Where does he go? What does he know? Flying along Like life is a song Only the good dogs know—— Chorus: When he hears the call—— Reach into his soul—— He lets his wild fire go—— Smokey will run free Can you hear it too——? Reaching into you——? Let your inner child through—— Then you will run free—— Then you will run free——too So many hills And valleys in life But that’s where we find Out what’s inside The right attitude Can carry you through Seems like the good dogs know—— Chorus: When he hears the call—— Reach into his soul—— He lets his wild fire go—— Smokey will run free Can you hear it too——? Reaching into you——? Let your inner child through—— Then you will run free—— Then you will run free——too

Turtlurtlurtle is a turtle, not a bird Or an orangutan, an elephant Or even a giraffe She can hold her breath Under water, like an otter But she isn’t an otter either And her best friend, Lou Is a turtle too--- How do you do, Lou? Turtlurtlurtle has a sister, Myrtlyrtle She’s a turtle, not a parrotfish Flamingo or a bat If you get confused When you see her on the evening news She isn’t a TV journalist She has a crush on Lou If he only knew--- (Oh!) How do you do, Lou? Now turtles don’t often Get mistaken For the other animals in the zoo--- Except for tortoises They live on land We're talking about turtles They live in water, and on land too Turtlurtlurtle is a little bit unusual She likes to wear a costume Every day of her life She’s super social Soaking in the pools of other animals She doesn’t seem scared at all--- And her best friend, Lou Wears a costume, too--- But only sometimes So, if you happen to Be at the zoo And you see a strange looking animal—- It might be a turtle In disguise Otherwise, it might be a homo sapien Turtlurtlurtl---urtlurtlurtlurtlurtl... Urtlurtlurtlurtl and Loooo Turtlurtlurtl---urtlurtlurtlurtlurtle Urtlurtlurtl--urtl and Loooo Turtlurtlurtle’s still a turtle. Quite a turtle! And Myrtlyrtle finally married Lou Everybody’s happy This is sounding kind of sappy But we hope to see you at the zoo Bring your best friend, too If he’s a turtle, you—- Are lucky

There’s a froggie on my window sill He’s a noisy little guy Keeps me up all night, saying… Ribbit, ribbit, ribbit, ribbit, ribbit, ribbit ribbit There’s a froggie on the front porch swing She’s a chatty little girl Talking, talking to the world, saying… Ribbit ribbit ribbit, redeep redeep, Ribbit ribbit ribbit, redeep, redeep There’s a froggie in the mailbox He’s a booming old man Sending echoes through the land, saying… Ooh bop, ooh bop bop, ooh bop, ooh bop, ooh bop bop There’s a choir in the garden now A bunch of noisy little frogs Making music on a log They’re singing… Ooh bop, ooh bop bop, ribbit ribbit ribbit ribbit ooh bop bop Oopsie, oopsie, ribbit redeep, oopsie, oopsie, ribbit redeep… I love that choir in the garden, yeah A bunch of noisy little frogs Making music on a log They’re singing… Ooh bop, ooh bop bop, ribbit ribbit ribbit ribbit ooh bop bop Oopsie, oopsie, ribbit redeep, oopsie, oopsie, ribbit redeep…

One fine day, I took a walk And this is what I saw… Two baby squirrels Running round in a circle Bushy tailed, playing games It’s a springtime morning Three baby birds With their mouths open wide Mama’s just in sight Flying high in the sunlight Four baby turtles Blowing bubbles in the water Five baby duckies Leaving ripples on the pond And there were six baby rabbits Making mischief in the new, green grass Doing a springtime dance La la la la la La la la la la La la la la la la La la la la la La la la la la La la la la la la la After seven rain showers I took a walk And this is what I spied… Eight daffodils Popping out of the ground Reaching up the sky Waking up for the springtime Nine little daisies Faces following the light What a sweet and silly sight Soft and white in the daylight Ten lovely tulips Painted colors of the rainbow Eleven lady slippers Looking delicate as glass And there were twelve baby ferns Uncurling as a breeze tickled past Part of the springtime dance La la la la la La la la la la La la la la la la La la la la la La la la la la La la la la la la la Dance with me La la la la la la la In the springtime La la la la la la la

Hello, I am a monkey I would like to play If you will not play with me Then I will say... Hello, I am a monkey I would like to play If you will not play with me Then I will say...
