All Gods Creatures. (Bill Staines)


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

You got to listen to the bass, the one on the bottom
Where bullfrog croaks and the hippopotamus
Moans and groans with a big Gnu
The old brown cow goes moo

The dogs and the cats are gonna take up the middle
Where the honeybee hums and the crickets fiddle
The donkey brays and the pony neighs
And the old grey Badger sighs

Listen to the top where the little birds sing
On the melody with the high notes ringing
The hooter screams at everything
And the blackbird disagrees

Singing in the night time, singing in the day
The little duck quacks and he’s on his way
The possum ain’t got much to say
The porcupine talks to himself

It’s a simple song, a living song everywhere
With the fox and the ox and the grizzly bear
Crocodile alligator and the hawk above
The sly Weasel and the turtle dove
