Can you hop, hop like a bunny?
(Hop, hop like a bunny)
Jump like a kangaroo?
(Jump like a kangaroo)
Can you waddle like a penguin?
Show me what you can do!

Can you fly like a bird in the sky?
(Fly like a bird in the sky)
And tweet a happy song?
(Tweet a happy song)
Flap your wings like a butterfly
Listen and follow along!

Follow the leader
Copy what you see
Follow the leader
What animals can we be?

Can you squiggle like a squid?
(Squiggle like a squid)
Can you swim, swim like a fish?
(Swim, swim like a fish)
Can you gallop like a pony?
And give your tail a swish

Can you dance like a funky monkey?
(Dance like a funky monkey)
Now buzz, buzz like a bee?
(Buzz, buzz like a bee)
Can you pose like a pink flamingo?
With one foot on your knee


Can you stomp like a bear?
(Stomp like a bear)
Dig, dig, dig like a mole?
(Dig, dig, dig like a mole)
Can you wiggle, wiggle like a worm?
And hide inside your hole

Can you open and close like a clam?
(Open and close like a clam)
And snap like a crocodile?
(Snap like a crocodile)
Can you lurk like a shark?
And show me your best smile


Can you pounce like a tiger?
(Pounce like a tiger)
Like a lizard, take a leap
(Take a lizard leap)
Can you be quiet as a little mouse?
It’s time to fall asleep… Wake up!!


Follow the leader
Look what you can do!
Follow the leader
Next time, I’ll follow you!
