My best friend her name is Annabelle
Oh yeah my best friend her name is Annabelle

When I go in in the morning and I open the door
When I go in in the morning and I open the door
all the animals are sleeping on the floor

Can you guess which animal woke up first?
Can you guess which animal woke up first?
It wasn't the sloth, he was sleeping in the tree
It was the Lion and the Lion he sang with me

ROAR! ROAR! ROAR! ROAR!

Can you guess which animal woke up next?
Can you guess which animal woke up next?
It wasn't the sloth, he was sleeping in the tree
It was the Monkey and the Monkey he sang with me

Oooh, Oooh, Aaaagh, Aaaagh,

Can you guess which animal woke up next?
Can you guess which animal woke up next?
It wasn't the sloth, he was sleeping in the tree
It was the Snake and the Snake he sang with me

It was the Giraffe and the Giraffe he sang with me

Track Name: Squirrel shakes the tree
Squirrel cannot find any nuts,
Squirrel cannot find any nuts,
Squirrel cannot find any nuts,
Squirrel cannot find any nuts,

Squirrel shakes the tree and the nuts fall down,
Squirrel shakes the tree and the nuts fall down,
Squirrel shakes the tree and the nuts fall down,
Squirrel shakes the tree and the nuts fall down on the ground,

Squirrels like nothing more than nuts,
Squirrels like nothing more than nuts,
Squirrels like nothing more than nuts,
Squirrels like nothing more than nuts,

Squirrel shakes the tree and the nuts fall down,
Squirrel shakes the tree and the nuts fall down,

Track Name: Walking in the woods
I was walking in the woods when I heard a sound
I was too scared to turn around
When I did what did I see?
A squeaking mouse was following me
and the mouse went...

I was walking in the woods when I heard a sound
I was too scared to turn around
When I did what did I see?
A little woodlouse was following me
and the woodlouse went...

I was walking in the woods when I heard a sound
I was too scared to turn around
When I did what did I see?
A hooting owl was following me
and the owl went...

I was walking in the woods when I heard a sound
I was too scared to turn around
When I did what did I see?
A slithering slug was following me
and the slug went...

I was walking in the woods when I heard a sound
I was too scared to turn around
When I did what did I see?
A howling fox was following me
and the fox went...
Track Name: Squirrel, Squirrel, Squirrel
Squirrel, squirrel, squirrel
With his bushy tail
And his furry feet,
looking for nuts to eat,
I wish that I could be,

Sitting under a horse chestnut tree,
Thinking that a squirrel is looking at me
Sitting under a horse chestnut tree,
Thinking that a squirrel is looking at me

Squirrel, squirrel, squirrel
Can be grey or red,
Leaping through the sky,
Some can even fly,
I wish that I could be,

Sitting under a horse chestnut tree,
Thinking that a squirrel is looking at me
Sitting under a horse chestnut tree,
Thinking that a squirrel is looking at me
Track Name: Wiggle, Wiggle, Wiggle
I know a worm who'd sing a song
and the notes he'd sing were really, really loooooong
I know a worm who'd sing a song
and the notes he'd sing were really, really loooooong

and when he did he would...
WIGGLE, WIGGLE, WIGGLE

I know a worm, wormie was his name
He liked to come out in the rain
I know a worm, wormie was his name
He liked to come out in the rain

and when he did he would...
WIGGLE, WIGGLE, WIGGLE

He'd wiggle to the left, he'd wiggle to the right
He'd wiggle all day and he'd wiggle all night

He really liked to...
WIGGLE, WIGGLE, WIGGLE

Purr, purr, purr, purr, purr

You're the mixed up creature with the really cool name

Can you eat like a platypus?

Little puffin, little puffin
Snoring in a burrow, snoring in a burrow
Little puffin, little puffin

Swimming through the sea with their little black wings
Catching some food for their little pufflings
Swimming through the sea with their little black wings
Catching some food for their little pufflings
Swimming through the sea with their little black wings

Little puffin, little puffin
Snoring in a burrow, snoring in a burrow

Track Name: I'm a Wild Thing!
I can be wild, you can be wild,
there's nothing more wild than a human child

I'm a wild thing can you hear me ROAR
I wannna go outside and play some more
I wanna go outside and climb a tree
I'm not happy unless there's mud on me
I'm a wild thing can you hear me ROAR

I'm getting bored of being inside
don't want to go to the shops, don't want to go to town
but these four walls are getting me down
I wanna hear the wind in the trees
I heard a story about a child in 1999
they went outside and they came back fine

I'm a wild thing can you hear me ROAR
I wannna go outside and play some more
I wanna go outside and eat a worm
I wanna do things that make adults squirm
I'm a wild thing can you hear me ROAR

I wanna feel the grass beneath my feet
swap the pavement for a woodland trail
have a conversation with a garden snail
The weather doesn't bother me,
if the sky's are grey I wont complain
Kids, like nature, come alive in the rain

I'm a wild thing can you hear me ROAR
I wannna go outside and play some more
I wanna go outside and be less formal
I'm not some kind of hippy, this behavior is normal
I'm a wild thing can you hear me ROAR

I can be wild, you can be wild,
there's nothing more wild than a human child

I'm a wild thing can you hear me ROAR
I wannna go outside and play some more
I wanna go outside come rain or shine
I wanna have some wild time,
I'm a wild thing can you hear me ROAR
I'm a wild thing can you hear me ROAR
