Two Sandals – Number 2 Lyrics

1 2

Numbers 1 to 10 Gus would love to teach,
while he’s having fun playing at the beach.
Let’s continue without further ado,
here we go are you ready for number two?

Two sandals for two hippo feet,
I think his sandals are pretty neat.
Lying on a towel and letting
the warm sun dry.
Gus listens to a fly buzzing by!
Two sandals for two hippo feet,
nice and cool to beat the summer heat.
