"WHAT KIND OF ANIMAL"

Elephants sway from side to side,
Their trunks are big and strong.
But little mice are very meek,
They squeak and scurry along.
The kangaroo will jump for you,
She likes to leap and bound.
The tall giraffe eats leaves from trees,
And rarely makes a sound. [Ssshhhhh!]

Chorus
What kind of animal can you pretend to be?
A flying bird, a swimming fish,
Or a funny chimpanzee!
Repeat

The hippopotamus is large,
But he can really swim.
The lean gazelle is shy and swift,
And she runs like the wind.
The cockatoo can talk to you ["Hello!"]
If you teach him some words.
The ostrich and the emu
Are the largest of all birds.

[Repeat Chorus]

It's really so exciting when
You hear a lion's roar.
Or look up high into the sky
To watch an eagle soar.
The mountain goat will climb the slope
Of a rugged mountain side.
And turtles move so slowly
As they walk by the sea side.

[Repeat Chorus two times]
