Waddley Archer Love to Sing

Sing and Learn the Actions!


Waddley Archer, Waddley Archer,
Doodley-doo, doodley-doo.
Waddley Archer, Waddley Archer,
Doodley-doo, doodley-doo.
It’s just a simple song
and there’s nothing to it.
All you have to do is doodley-doo it!
I like the rest but the part I like best is
Doodley-doodley doo,
Quack quack!
