Over in the Meadow Song

Over in the Meadow Song

Over in the meadow in a pond in the sun
Lived an old mother duck and her little duck one
Quack said the mother, quack said the one
And they quacked and were happy in the pond in the sun

Over in the meadow in a stream so blue
Lived an old mother fish and her little fishes two
Glub said the other, glub said the two
And they glubbed and were happy in the stream so blue

Over…in a nest in a tree/bird –birdies three/tweet (x3)
And they sang and were happy in the nest in the tree

Over…on a rock by the shore/frog – froggies four/croak (x4)
And they croaked and were happy on the rock by the shore

Over…in a big bee hive/bee-five/buzz (x5)
And they buzzed and were happy in the big bee hive

Over…in the noonday sun
There was a pretty mother and her little baby one
“Listen” said the mother “to the ducks and the bees
To the frogs and the fishes and the birds in the trees”
Buzz (x5) said the 5, Croak (x4) said the 4, Tweet (x3) said the 3,
Glub (x2) said the 2, Quack said the one
And the little baby laughed just to hear such fun
