Friend to every Animal



I'm going to bear hug a grizzly bear
Show a lion that I care

I won't feel bad about a snake
I'll invite a crab to a clambake

I want to be a friend to all animals
Let them know that we are pals

I'm going to have a dance with a monkey
We'll do the Congo Funky Dunky

I'll help a sloth to cross the street
And Bo Peep to tend her sheep

I'll tell a zebra I like her stripes
And listen to a Gorilla's gripes

That's what I'll do
How about you?
