Little White Duck


Children will love to sing and dance
along with this fun Animal song!

Lyrics

There's a little white duck swimming in the water.
A little white duck, doing what she ought-a.
She took a bite of a lily pad, she flapped her wings
and then she said:
"I'm glad that I'm a little white duck
swimming in the water QUACK, QUACK, QUACK!"

There's a little green frog swimming in the water.
A little green frog, doing what she ought-a.
She jumped right up on the lily pad that the little duck bit and then she said:
"I'm glad that I'm a little green frog
swimming in the water CROAK, CROAK, CROAK!"

There's a little black bug lying in the water.
A little black bug, doing what he ought-a.
He swam right up to the lily pad and tickled the frog
and then he said:
"I'm glad that I'm a little black bug
Lying in the water BUZZ, BUZZ, BUZZ!"

There's a little red snake sliding in the water.
A little red snake, doing what she ought-a.
She scared the frog and the duck so bad and she ate the bug and then she said:
"I'm glad that I'm a little red snake
Sliding in the water SSSSS, SSSSS, SSSSS!"
