A Place in the Choir

The Kerry Boys - Live In the Studio


All God’s critters got a place in the choir Some sing low, some sing higher Some sing out loud on the telephone wire Some just clap their hands or paws or anything they got now Listen to the bass it’s the one on the bottom Where the bullfrog croaks and the hippopotamus Moans and groans with a big too – do, and the old cow just goes moo The dogs and the cats they take up the middle Where the hummingbirds hum and the cricket fiddles The donkey brays and the pony neighs, the old coyote howls Listen to the top where the birds sing On the melody with the high notes ringin’ While the hoot owl hollers over everything, the jay bird disagrees Singin’ in the nighttime singin’ in the day The little duck quacks and he’s on his way The opossum ain’t got much to say, and the porcupine talks to himself It’s a simple song of livin’ sung everywhere By the ox, the fox and the grizzly bear The grumpy alligator and the hawk above The sly raccoon and the turtle dove
