SONG LYRICS to accompany “THE GREAT KAPOK TREE”

   L   R                                         L                     R                                            

We are cruising down the river,                   the  mighty amazon. 

                                                                                                 

                        R                                   

       You can hear each jungle critter                    cavort and carry on. 

                                                                                                           

The monkeys and macaws                                      make so much noise because

                                                                                                         

they sing a song as                                                       through the trees they go.

OH YES, They chatter and they croon, This crazy jungle tune,

                                                                                                                                              

Though what it means we                            really do not know__(hold/ think 1,2,3,4,5 smile!)

Chop, chop, whack, whack, Please don’t do that!

Chop, chop, whack, whack Please don’t do that!

This Kapok tree is home to many, many animals.

Chop, chop, whack, whack, Please don’t do that!

Gone in a year, no more Kapok trees.  Gone in a year, no more animals here.

Rainforest, rainforest gone in a year? Rainforest, rainforest, we won’t be here. 

Chop, chop, whack, whack, Please don’t do that!

Chop, chop, whack, whack  Pleeeease,…… (watch Mrs. Pretzman) don’t do that!

Rain is falling down.  Rain is falling down. Pitter, patter, pitter, patter.Rain is falling down.

Rainforest!  Rainforest!         Where the trees come up and the rain comes down,

and the great Kapok tree holds it all in the ground.  Rainforest!  Rainforest!

Verse:

Now what is a rainforest, I’ll tell you yet! Places dense and warm and wet. 

At the equator, the whole world round,  where the trees come up and the rain comes down.  Rainforest!..Rainforest! Where the trees come up and the rain comes down,

and the great Kapok tree holds it all in the ground.
