Book 13 Page 3


The animals come out



The frogs in the night go,

croak - croak - croak,

as they all come awake hidden

under their night time cloak.


The crickets in the night go,

creek - creek - creek.

The bats go squeak - squeak - squeak, squeak - squeak - squeak.

And Iím having a hard time

getting to sleep - sleep - sleep.


There are possums in the roof

and the mice are at play.

O Why donít they all come out

when itís the; day - day - day.


The animals in the night

go croak - creek - and squeak,

just when itís time for me to get some,

sleep - sleep -sleep. 25/2/00
