The singing sea

The talking trees

Are Silent in a noisy way

The stars are bright

But give no light

The world spins backward everyday

A rainbow rat

A checkered cat

Go tail in tail around the road

The mouse is pleased

The moon is cheese

The sun is shining hot and cold

A golden bird

Today I heard

Sitting upon a silver branch

His little song was very long

Which made me sad and start to laugh

My sister he

My brother she

But there is only me in the family

When I grow up

I'll go down

The river to the Singing Sea
