All God's Creatures


All God's creatures got a place in the choir 
Some sing low and some sing higher 
Some sing out loud on the telephone wire 
Some just clap their hands or paws or anything they've got now...

Listen to the bass; he's 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 
Where the donkey brays and the pony neighs 
And the old grey badger sighs. 

Listen to the ducks and the little birds singing 
On the melody with the high notes ringing 
The hoot owl cries over everything 
And the jay bird disagrees. 

Singing in the nighttime, singing in the day 
The little duck quacks and he's on his way 
The otter hasn't got that much to say 
And the porcupine talks to himself. 

It's a simple song, a living song everywhere 
By the ox and the fox and the grizzly bear 
The grumpy alligator and the hawk above 
The sly old weasel and the turtle dove.
