Thread Name: Lyr Req: Little White Duck (Burl Ives)
Subject: Burl Ives: A Little White Duck
Looking for the absolute lyrics for this song, which begins: There's a little white duck, swimmin in the water, a little white duck, doin what he oughter: he swam right past the lily pad, he swam right past and he said I'm Glad i'm a little white duck, swimmin in the water: quack, quack, quack. ...and so it goes with a frog (ribit) and a snake - but i can't remember what the snake says/does - seems to me something ambiguous happens with the snake to suggest the demise of the duck & frog.

anybody out there into burl ives? it was one of his standards...

thanks interplanetjanet
