Raccoon (Download your Raccoon Mask Here!)
Sung To: “Kookaburra”
Raccoon sleeps in a hollow tree
While the sun shines on you and me.
Sleep, raccoon.
Sleep, raccoon,
Warm and cozily.

In the darkest part of night
Raccoon has the best eyesight.
Look raccoon,
Look, raccoon,
My, your eyes are bright.

Raccoon hardly makes a sound
When he prowls all around.
Hunt raccoon,
Hunt raccoon,
Find food on the ground.

Sung To: “Did You Ever See A Lassie”
If you’re ever in the forest,
The forest, the forest,
If you’re ever in the forest,
You might see some deer.
With antlers on one;
Another might run.
If you’re ever in the forest.
You might see some deer.

Little Skunk’s Hole
Sung to: “Dixie”
Oh, I stuck my head in the little skunk’s hole,
And the little skunk said,
“Well, bless my soul!
Take it out! Take it out! Take it out!
Remove it!”
Oh, I didn’t take it out,
And the little skunk said,
“If you don’t take it out, you’ll wish you had. Take it out! Take it out! Take it out!”
Pheew! I removed it!

Sleepy Bear
Sung to: Thumbkin
Where is Bear? Where is Bear?
Here I am. Here I am.
How are you this winter?
Very tired, thank you.
Go to sleep. Go to sleep.
