Some just clap their

Our chord converter enables you to play this song in any key.

The dogs and the cats they take up the middle
Where the honey bee hums and the cricket fiddles
The donkey brays and the pony neighs
And the old badger sighs

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 other hasn’t got much to say
And the porcupine talks to himself

Its a simple song, a little one sung everywhere
By the ox and the fox and the grizzly bear
The dopey alligator and the hawk above
The sly old weasel and the turtle dove
