Thread Name: Lyr Req: Little White Duck (Burl Ives)
Subject: RE: Little white duck, little green frog
If you can wait till later today, I can look it up in my daughter's Raffi book.
Alison's got the gist of it.
Each verse builds on the previous, and has a sound:

There's a little white duck, floating in the water
There's a little white duck, doing what he oughter
He took a bite of a lily pad,
and he shook his wings and he said, "I'm glad
I'm a little white duck, floating in the water,
Quack, quack, quack.

There's a little green frog, swimming in the water
There's a little green frog doing what he oughter
He jumped right off of the lily pad
that the little duck bit and he said, I'm glad
I'm a little green frog, Swimming in the water,
Glunk, glunk glunk.

And then there's a little black bug that buzzes, and finally a little red snake that hisses, eats the bug and scares everyone else away, and
There's nobody left,....
scared the frog and the duck so bad and he ate the bug... I'm sad that there's nobody left....boo, hoo hoo.
If no one else posts, I put it in tomorrow.
Blessings,
Barbara
