The elephant song

This is a cute song about animals. Before you listen, read what the singer says about them. What is wrong?

- elephants swing through trees
- monkeys swim in the ocean
- fish scratch at fleas, sniff at trees and bark at the mailman
- dogs curl upon the window sill purring and chasing mice
- cats say "cock-a-doodle-doo"
- roosters reach into beehives for the honey
- bears jump up high to catch a fly, and sit on a lilypad
- frogs run through a maze for some cheese
- mice say "hee-haw"
- donkeys stomp through the jungle with their big grey trunks

Now watch the video. How does the little girl react to the singer's mistakes?

Hei people, my two year son loved it. He asked me for the music so many times that I learned a lot about animals! Very cute!

Hi Adriana,
my nieces love this song too! The little girl saying "You don't know anything about animals!" is just adorable, isn't it? Every now and then I find myself humming the song on the way to work... :-)
I'm glad João Pedro liked it!
Big hug,
Mônica
