I thought it was the Little White Duck - by Burl Ives - perhaps a different
version. Sorry don't have the lyrics though.

Not another version, just another verse. There's also a Little Black
Bug and a Little Green Snake, but danged if I can find the lyrics. I;ve
been looking for it, too, to sing to my preschool neighbors.

And so the word went out from Tek <teka...@my-deja.com>:

Aha! Found it here after a bit of searching:

It includes a midi file on the site.

The Little White Duck
Lyrics written by Bernard Zaritzky & Walt Barrows
sung by Burl Ives

There's a little white duck
Sitting in the water
A little white duck
Doing what he oughter
He took a bite of a lily pad
Flapped his wings and he said
"I'm glad I'm a little white duck
Sitting in the water
Quack! quack! quack!"

There's a little green frog
Swimming in the water
A little green frog
Doing what he oughter
He jumped right off of the lily pad
That the little duck bit and he said


"I'm glad I'm a little green frog

Swimming in the water
Ribbit! ribbit! ribbit!"

There's a little black bug
Floating on the water
A little black bug
Doing what he oughter
He tickled the frog on the lily pad
That the little duck bit and he said
"I'm glad I'm a little black bug
Floating on the water
Bzzz! bzzz! bzzz!"

There's a little red snake
Playing in the water
A little red snake
Doing what he oughter
He frightened the duck
And the frog so bad
He ate the bug and he said
"I'm glad I'm a little red snake
Playing in the water
Hiss! hiss! hiss!"

Now there's nobody left
Sitting in the water
Nobody left doing what he oughter
There's nothing left but the lily pad
The duck and the frog ran away,
I'm sad 'cause there's nobody left
Sitting in the water
Boo! hoo! hoo!

Cheers,

TD

For soon they'll plough the desert
and God knows where I'll be
collecting submarine numbers
on the main street of the sea
from Elton John's "Hymn 2000"

For a good time call
