The Zebra Song


Sing and Learn the Actions!

Lyrics

The grasslands of Africa, is their home.
In their herds the zebras love to roam.
Every zebra is black and white.
And each zebra, has it’s own pattern of stripes.
Africa is their home.
In their herds the zebras love to roam.
Africa is their home.
In their herds the zebras love to roam.
