Little yellow spider laughing at the snow
Well maybe that spider knows something that I don't know Cuz I'm goddamn cold
Little white monkey staring at the sand Maybe that monkey figured out something I couldn't understand Who knows
Well I came upon a dancing crab and I stopped to watch it shake, I said, 'Dance for me just one more time before ya hibernate, and ya come out a crab cake'
And hey there little snapping turtle, snapping at a shell Oh there's mysteries inside I know But what they are I just can't tell for sure
And hey there little baby crow, you're looking kind of mean I think I oughta split before ya start letting off your spleen For sure
And hey there little sexy pig, you mated with a man And now you've got a little kid With hooves instead of hands
And oh all of the animals, all of the animals
And hey there little mockingbird, they sing about you in songs 'Oh where ya been? Have ya broke a wing?' I haven't heard ya in so long
And hey there little albatross, swimming in the air 'Aw, hey ya know I can't fly and I Think we really oughta play fair'
And hey there mister happy squid, you move so psychedelically You hypnotize with your magic dance all the animals in the sea For sure
And oh all of the animals, all the animals
And hey there Mr. Morning Sun, what kind of creature are you I can't stare, but I know you're there Goddamn, how I wish I knew
And hey there Mrs. Lovely Moon, you're lonely and you're blue It's kind of strange the way you change But then again, we all do too
