A Place In The Choir

“A Place in the Choir”

[Chorus]

All God’s creatures got a place in the choir, Some sing low and some sing higher, Some sing out loud on the telephone wire, Some just clap their hands or paws or anything they got.

[Repeat Chorus]

Well listen to the bass its the one on the bottom, Where the bullfrog croaks and the hippopotamus, moans and groans with a big to do, And the old cow just goes moo. The dogs and the cats, they take up the middle, Where the honeybee hums and the cricket fiddles, The donkey brays and the pony neighs, And the old gray badger sighs.

[Chorus]

Listen to the top with the little birds singing, And the melodies and the high notes ringing, And the hoot-owl cries over everything, And the blackbird disagrees. Singing in the night time singing in the day, And the little duck quacks and he’s on his way, And the otter hasn’t got much to say, And the porcupine talks to himself.

[Chorus]

Its a simple song living song everywhere, By the ox and the fox and the grizzly bear, The grumpy alligator and the hawk above, The sly old weasel and the turtledove.
