He quacked it for a ducky crowd. A little snake... sat in the grass. He slithered through...the Sassifras. He hissed it soft. He hissed it loud. He hissed it for a slithery crowd. A little elephant ... sat in the water... And there she did... just what he oughtter. She trumpeted soft. She trumpeted loud. She trumpeted for an elephant crowd. A little cow ...sat on some silk... and there she gave... some chocolate milk. She mooed real soft... She mooed real loud. She mooed it for a bovine crowd. verse.

He looks up at the sun and the snow falling down Point up to the sun and motion like a fluttery snow flake. and he follows a little snow flake. (Chorus) Singing Oooooo ooooh, Oooooo oooooh, Oooo ooooo oooooooh He walks over a bridge and under the trees. Hold one arm out horizontally in front of you. Walk the other hand on the “bridge.” Then, hold one arm up vertically with fingers spread. Walk the other hand under the “tree.” He climbs up a mountain so high. Motion hands up and over your head. Then back down he slides, and he looks side to side. Sweep them down again and look side to side. And he said “I am lost!” and he cries. Cover eyes and pretend to cry. (Bridge) He cries “where is my mother, my father, my brother Put hand up above the eyes and pretend to search. and where could my sisters all be. I know what I’ll do. I will open my mouth. Put index finger to head. Open mouth. And howl out a wolf melody!” Hooooowl! The wind it does whistle and the trees whisper “whoosh” Sway arms over head. and the birds sing their song to the sun. Use thumb and index finger to imitate a bird in song. And the cub hears his mother and sisters and brother. Hold hand to ear. A wolf howling band has begun! Get ready to hooowl! Last howl: oooooooooooooooooh!
