All Earth's Creatures
chorus:All earth's creatures got a place in the choir
Some sing lower and some sing higher
Some sing out loud on the telephone wire
And some just clap their hands
Or paws or wings or claws
Or anything they got now.
Listen to the bass its the one on the bottom
Where the bullfrog croaks
And the hippopotamus moans and groans with a big to-do
And the old cow just goes moo.
Dogs and cats they take up the middle
Where the honey bee hums and the cricket fiddles
The donkey brays and the pony neighs
And all the coyotes howl.
Listen to the top where the little birds sing
On the melody with the high notes ringing
The hoot owl howls over everything
And the jaybird disagrees.
Singin' in the nighttime, singin' in the day
The little duck quacks and then she's on her way
The 'possum ain't got much to say
And the porcupine talks to himself.
It's a simple little song sung everywhere
By the ox and the fox and the grizzly bear
The grumpy alligator and the hawk above
