A Place In The Choir

Listen Now!

A Place In The Choir
00:00 / 02:55


Sing Along Now!


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

Listen to the bass it's the one on the bottom
Where the bullfrog croaks and the hippopotamus
Moans and groans with a big to-do
The old cow just goes moo
The dogs and the cats they take up the middle
Where the hummingbird hums and the crickets fiddle
The donkey brays and the pony neighs And the old coyote howls

Listen to the top where the little birds sing
On the melody with the high notes ringing
The hoot owl hollers over everything
and the jaybird disagrees
Singing in the night time singing in the day
Little duck quacks and he's on his way
the possum ain't got much to say And the porcupine talks to himself


It's a simple song of love and care by the ox and the fox and the grizzly bear
The grumpy alligator and the hawk above The sly raccoon and the turtle dove
