Track Name: Animal Best Friends
There’s an elephant sanctuary
In the state of Tennessee
And all these elephants live there, together
In perfect harmony
And one day a dog came to live there too
And they were like “who’s this little fluffy guy…running around, being crazy?”
And one of the elephants in particular took a shining to him
And they started hanging out and playing all the time
And they became ANIMAL BEST FRIENDS (x6)
an elephant and a dog

One time up in Alaska
This guy had a bunch of sled dogs
And he looked out his window and saw a polar bear coming
And he was like, “oh my gosh, that polar bear’s gonna eat my dogs”
But, much to his surprise, it did NOT eat the dogs
It wanted to be friends with the dogs
And started playing with them
And then coming back to visit
Frequently!
So that they could play
Maybe he was lonely, and dogs are really friendly
And they became ANIMAL BEST FRIENDS(x6)
A polar bear and dogs

Yes, so many examples of animals reaching across species
And becoming best friends with each other
Indeed, more often than not, this is due to human interference,
But no matter
It’s still the most wonderful thing in the world
Can you think of a(n) unlikely animal friendship that you would like to see?
Like maybe a donkey and a beaver?
Or like a cat and a big huge cow?

ANIMAL BEST FRIENDS (x10)
…the most wonderful, cutest thing in the world, is animal best friends
Track Name: Earthworms!
Earthworms! (x2)

Squigglin' and Squirmin' deep in the dirt
Tilling the soil and digesting earth
You've been doing what you do for billions of years
without eyes and without ears
you are a little intestine who nourishes soil
can wrap around rocks like a little coil

Thank you so much, earthworms
for everything that you do
without you, we couldn't grow food
and I quite enjoy eating
so I'd like to tip my hat
and acknowledge that
you are totally amazing
(even though you look a little weird)

Earthworms! (x2)

Squigglin' and Squirmin' deep in the dirt
tillin' the soil and digesting earth
you don't have noses, and yet you still smell
with receptors in your bodies you can tell
where you gotta go and what you gotta do
earthworms, I really admire you

Thank you so much, earthworms
for everything that you do
without you we couldn't grow food
and I quite enjoy eating
so I'd like to tip my hat
and acknowledge that
you are totally amazing
(even though you look a little weird)
Who cares?

Earthworms! (x3)
Track Name: Eat Your Greens
Marshmallow Pie (x2)
Oh Momma, why
can't I have marshmallows all the time?

Mama says you gotta eat your greens
As unjust and unfair as it seems
You gotta eat your greens so you can grow up strong
and your brain works right
and you can be a healthy adult
Listen!
You have got to eat your greens

Ice Cream (x3)
Auntie, why are you so mean?
Why can't I have ice cream every single day of the week?

Auntie says you gotta eat your greens
As unjust and unfair as it seems
You gotta eat your greens so you can grow up strong
and your brain works right
and you can be a healthy adult
Listen!
You have got to eat your greens

Candy (x3)
Life would be fine and dandy
If I could just have candy whenever I please.

Look, I understand
Sugar is delicious, I get it, man
But you just can't eat it all the time
In fact, sometimes you just have to eat something
nutritious and also delicious
cuz greens are sometimes delicious
and good for your body
and you're gonna thank me in the end
Listen!
You have got to eat your greens, please.
