Muskrat, muskrat, what makes your back so slick?
I've been livin' in the water all my life
There's no wonder I'm sick
I'm sick, I'm sick, I'm sick

Groundhog, groundhog, what makes your back so round?
I've been livin' in the ground all my life
There's no wonder I'll go 'round
I'll go 'round, I'll go 'round, I'll go 'round

Tapir, tapir, what makes you fly so high?
I've been eatin' me savin's all my life
There's no wonder I'll die
I'll die, I'll die, I'll die

Rooster, rooster, what makes your bark so hard?
I've been scratchin' in the barnyard all my life
There's no wonder I'm tired
I'm tired, I'm tired, I'm tired

Bobcat, bobcat, what makes your tail so long?
I've been prowlin' around all my life
There's no wonder I'm gone
I'm gone, I'm gone, I'm gone
