It's a bird
He goes flap, flap, boggie, woogie, oogie!
flap, flap, boggie, woogie, oogie!

It's a leopard
She goes leap, leap, boggie, woogie, oogie!
leap, leap, boggie, woogie, oogie!

That's the way she's learning how to leap

Down in a jungle where there's danger all around?
What can you see slithering on the ground?

What's that creature slithering on the ground?
It's a snake
He goes slither, slither, boggie, woogie, oogie!
slither, slither, boggie, woogie, oogie!
slither, slither, boggie, woogie, oogie!

Nursery rhymes of the week:

The Firefighter’s Song

I am a firefighter,

I wear a yellow hat,

And when the bell rings you can tell,

There’s a fire to put out.

So down the pole I slide so fast,

And off in the engine I go,

Racing through the traffic with my siren blowing so …

Nee-naw, nee-naw, nee-naw, nee-naw,

Now unwind the hose,

Nee-naw, nee-naw, nee-naw, nee-naw,

Up the ladders we go,

Nee-naw, nee-naw, nee-naw, nee-naw,

Spray the water on,

Rescue all the people,

Until the fire’s gone!
