In Africa

Hush Baby (repeat)

(Narrator )

The drums play low and the time moves slow

As the rivers flows in Africa

The drums play low, makes you want to go

See the children grow in Africa

Come along, now the drums are growing strong

Everybody knows the song in Africa

Come and take a chance

Everybody wants to dance

It’s the land of romance in Africa

In Africa…(4x’s)

Where the world began ooohh

In Africa

Every single day you see the animals play

Makes you want to stay in Africa

Come on everyone before the day is done

There’s a land that’s full of fun in Africa

Come along, now the drums are growing strong

Everybody knows the song in Africa

Quiet little one come and join me in the sun

See a new day has begun in Africa

Hush baby (repeat)

The Great Grey Green and Greasy Limpopo River

Oh the great grey green and greasy Limpopo River

Is not the kind of place for a child to be

The sound of it will surely make you quiver

And cure you of your curiosity

Snakes on the banks and the crocodiles live in her

Don’t you know that the hippopotami float near the shore

If you get too close you might just be their dinner

And you’ll never see your family any more

There are fever trees on every bank

And if you please, it’s dark and dank,

Don’t get too close you best watch out

They’ll bite your nose, they’ll get your snout,

They’ll knock you here and there about (REST)

Oh the great grey green and greasy Limpopo River

Is everything you’ve ever heard it was

The very sound of it will make you shiver

It’s mostly mud, a little crud and scuzz

There are slinky snakes on every bank

And pirates who have walked the plank

So watch your feet and every inch

Or you will get a painful pinch

They’ve got you in their clinches (NO REST)

Oh the great grey green and greasy Limpopo River

Will cure you of your curiosity (2x)

A Crocodile Wink

Oh I have I seen a crocodile, what will you ask me next?

Your question is ridiculous, it really has me vexed.

Of course I’ve seen a crocodile, in answer to your plea,

The only thing I’m worried about is did he see me?

Oh have I seen a crocodile, then how shall I reply?

For if you listen carefully, I’ll answer by and by

Look there above the waterline try hard now not to blink.

For if you watch him carefully, I think he just might wink.

Come hither little one he says for I’m a crocodile,

And even though he’s crying tears I think I saw him smile.

Come hither little one he says for I’m a crocodile,

Come closer and I’ll whisper it oh curious little Elephant’s Child

There in the river see him now his eyes as black as ink

His tail is green his teeth are white his underneath is pink

Why does he look at me that way, I don’t know what to think.

It is an eerie sight indeed to see a crocodile wink!

Pull!

This is the time for heroics,

This is the time to be brave

If we all work together and do our part,

This elephant’s life we’ll save…..PULL! EVERYBODY PULL!

Dig with your heels and your back paws.

Tug with your hands or your claws.

Never give in or the croc will win,

He’s holding our friend in his jaws….PULL! EVERYBODY PULL!

(Dialogue)

PULL! EVERYBODY PULL!

This is no joke this is not a prank,

Someday this pachyderm will thank

All who would do the best they could now

Now everyone give a yank… PULL! EVERYBODY PULL!

PULL! (repeat)

A Really Truly Trunk

There’s not much to do when a fly is stinging you,

Unless you have a really truly trunk

There’s not much fun, no relief from the sun,

Unless you have a really truly trunk

Schlop up some mud from the great Limpopo

Choose a banana from the top of the tree

You’ll have friend everywhere that you both go,

That’s the kind of nose for me!

Before he had a clue just what he was going to do

He never really knew he had the trunk for it

But now the has a flare, a nose extraordinaire

Which he can really blare just like a trumpet

A muzzle or a beak or a new probiscus

A bill or a prow or a snout

You get a good whiff of a blue hibiscus,

Now you’ve got a nose with clout!

A really truly trunk (2x)

You get a good whiff of a blue hibiscus

Now you’ve got a nose with clout!
