primary1. animals. LYRICS

THE RHINO SONG
I know, everybody knows
You’ve got 1 tail, 4 feet, 12 toes
Mr Rhino, look what grows
Two big horns on the tip of your nose

Now you’ve got 3 friends, Mr Rhinoceros,
Elephant, buffalo, and hippopotamus
You’ve got two bad eyes, but you’re not deaf
And in Africa and Asia there’s not many of you left

Mr Rhino everybody knows

5, 6, 7, makes a herd
And on your back rides a white tick bird
8, 9, 10, you weigh a ton
But you are fast as a zebra when you are on the run

Mr Rhino everybody knows

Brambles and nettles, you love to crunch
With your many many teeth you munch and munch.
You’re one and only, but sure as you’re born
Bigger and better than a unicorn

THE ELEPHANT SONG
Elephants. I like elephants.
Elephants. I like elephants.
I like how they swing through trees

Monkeys. I like monkeys.
I like how they swim in the ocean

Fish. I like fish.
I like how they scratch at fleas and sniff at trees and bark at the mailman

Gotta like dogs.
Curled up on the windowsill purring, and chasing mice

Cats. I like cats.
I like how they say, Cock-a-doodle-doo!

Roosters. I like roosters.
I like how they gallup and trot

Horses. I like horses.
I like how they reach into beehives for the honey

Bears. I like bears.
I like how they jump up high to catch a fly and sit on a lilypad

Gotta like frogs.
Running through a maze for some cheese

Mice. I like mice.
I like how they say, Oink! Oink! Oink!

Piggies. I like piggies.
I like how they hop and eat carrots

Bunnies. I like bunnies.
I like how they stomp through the jungle with their big gray trunks

Elephants. I like elephants.

Near the village, the peaceful village
The lion sleeps tonight
Near the village, the peaceful village
The lion sleeps tonight

Don't fear, my little darling
My little darling
Don't fear, my little darling

Ingonyama ilele [The lion sleeps]
