G                        *
All God's critters got a place in the choir
D7             G
Some sing low, some sing higher
     C                    *         G 
Some sing out loud on the telephone wire
    D7                   G                *
And some just clap their hands or paws or anything they got, now ..
G                            *
Listen to the bass, it's the one on the bottom
          D7                      G
Where the bullfrog croaks and the hippopotamus
C                       *      G
Moans and groans with a big t'-do
        D7                G
And the old cow just goes moo
    G                       *
The dogs and the cats, they take up the middle
          D7                    G
While the honeybee hums and the cricket fiddles
    C                    *    G    
The donkey brays and the pony neighs
        D7         G
And the old coyote howls
G                           *
Listen to the top where the little birds sing
       D7              G
On the melody with the high notes ringing
    C                     *     G
The hoot owl hollers over every-thing
        D7            G
And the jay bird disa-grees
Singing in the night time, singing in the day
The little duck quacks, then he's on his way
The 'possum ain't got much to say
And the porcupine talks to himself
It's a simple song of living sung everywhere
By the ox and the fox and the grizzly bear
The grumpy alligator and the hawk above
The sly raccoon and the turtle dove
