Animal Fun In The Sun

Rated:

Sing and Learn the Actions!

Lyrics

Two little eyes to look around.
Two little ears to hear each sound.
One little nose to smell what's sweet.
One little mouth that loves to eat!

Play, play, play in the sun all day.
Roll, roll, roll around in the hay.
Jump, jump, jump and take a leap.
Now it's time for a little sleep.

Four little feet to touch the ground.
Four little legs to run around.
One little tongue to clean me neat.
One little tail to keep to the beat.

Play, play, play in the sun all day.
Roll, roll, roll around in the hay.
Jump, jump, jump and take a leap.
Now it's time for a little sleep.
