 Lyrics:

 

Chorus:


All God's critters 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, now…

 

 

 

 

Verse 1:

 

 

Listen to the bass, it's the one on the bottom
 

 

 

Where the bullfrog croaks and the hippopotamus

Moans and groans with a big t'-do
 

 

 

 

And the old cow just goes moo…

 

Chorus

 

 

 

 

Verse 2:

 

 

The dogs and the cats, they take up the middle
 

 

While the honeybee hums and the cricket fiddles
 

 

 

The donkey brays and the pony neighs
 

 

 

 

And the old coyote howls…

 

Chorus

 

 

Verse 3:

 

 

 

Listen to the top where the little birds sing
 

On the melody with the high notes ringing
 

 

 

 

The hoot owl hollers over everything
 

 

 

And the jay bird disagrees…
