Listen up, I'm at it again I got another rap for my animal friends Protecting their rep because they're misunderstood You know myths and misconceptions never did any good. Maniac! Back to the animals. Facts you lack about amphibians and mammals. Let me correct some misconceptions, if you can trust my myth-busting intentions. People may mention a poisonous snake You should say venomous, an easy mistake Most folks may think bats are blind But bats can see completely fine Earwigs don't live inside your ears Ostrich won't hide its head in fear Sheep and pigs are intelligent Just like elephants And owls ain't wise Big eyes are irrelevant I'm an animal maniac He's an animal brainiac X2 Listen you've been missing facts if you've been listening to myths If you've been misinformed I ask for you to take to task the bits of false information, spread across the nation, understand the animals and revel in creation Bulls don't charge the color red They're charging that fast movement instead And daddy long legs is not a venomous spider Its a fangless arachnid with not venom insider her There's not a bunch of water in a camel's hump That hump stores fat and that's enough Canines being color blind just ain't true Did you know that dogs can see blue? A mother bird won't abandon her baby Because of the scent left when touched by a kid, man or lady Turkeys don't drown in the rain And goldfish can store more than three seconds of memory in their brain I'm an animal maniac He's an animal brainiac X2 Now we're animal maniacs Now you're animal brainiacs X2 Now we're animal maniacs!

Amanda, dancing panda Amanda, the dancing panda! X2 Doesn't mind who stares Doesn't care who's gawking Dancing everywhere While the world is watching The other animals, hiding in their shells Behind their floppy ears Too shy to jump or yell Staring at Amanda in wonder and awe The only dancing panda that they ever saw Amanda, dancing panda Amanda, the dancing panda! X2 And Amanda stands on the hill Grooving through the bamboo Never staying still She shouts to the animals who are too shy to move, "You can dance if you want to. With dancing, you can't lose!" Amanda, dancing panda Amanda, the dancing panda! X2 Suddenly the animals, one by one Come out from hiding into the sun Amanda inviting them to have a ball Come on all you animals, let's dance till we drop! Amanda Panda, man you understand ya If you can dance and ya a man or a woman or an animal Moves so hot, they're flammable Spontaneous combustion Man, you just can't handle 'em Amanda, dancing panda Amanda, the dancing panda!

It's a habit of a rabbit to hop, never stopping Funny how fun it is for bunnies to keep jumping Never sleeping, ever eating carrots It's apparent that their energy perpetually causes hares to be carefree Do you dare me to pop up and not stop all my hopping till I drop Such a top way to be mocking rabbit habits, back at it again The facts are my friends are hopping for hours on end Hip-Hop Bunny Hop X4 Celery and broccoli Carrots, man I wanna be Eating those edible vegetables That give 'em incredible, impeccable, flexible skills They're hopping and you'll often be getting your fill of veggies We will not stop hopping often until forever ends So that's never, ya feels? Hip-Hop Bunny Hop X4 Right hop, left hop How fast can your bunny ears flop? Front hop, back hop Flop those bunny ears till they drop Hip-Hop Bunny Hop X4 Right hop, left hop How fast can your bunny ears flop? Front hop, back hop Flop those bunny ears till they drop Hip-Hop Bunny Hop!

Gary, the grasshopper, loves to hop around First getting down, down low to the ground Then springing back up into the air Hopping, hopping all day long Hopping everywhere! Brittany, the butterfly, loves to fly all day Flapping her pretty wings, flying her own way Zooming, soaring, floating through the air Flying, flying all day long Flying everywhere! Freddy, the firefly, loves to brightly glow Lighting up the night sky everywhere he goes Brilliant, radiant, a tiny yellow flare Glowing, glowing all night long Glowing everywhere!

Ow Ow Owl X2 "Ow!" yelled the owl, when he flew into a tree "Ow!" yelled the owl, when he fell into some leaves "Ow!" yelled the owl, when he tried to fly again "Ow!" yelled the owl. Ow ow owl, watch out friend! Ow Ow Owl X2 Tends to get hurt, falling in the dirt, Hitting every branch on the way down Owl tries to fly and soar, but he get hurt some more Tumbling to the ground! Ow Ow Owl X2 What does owl crash, when he tries to fly? He's got feathers and wings; I've got to wonder why He doesn't use them, just falls straight out of the tree What's the deal with this weird owl mystery Who? Who? Who? Who? Who could this owl be? Ow Ow Owl X2 I watched the owl wiggling in the dirt I carefully approached to see if he was hurt Suddenly, the owl popped off its head! I was about to freak out, but then a mouse crawled out instead "Clever disguise, young mouse! A cunning way to avoid your predator--well done!" Ow Ow Owl X4

Why Am I Not a Monkey? Strolling through the jungle, tall trees all around I see a shape, figure swinging on the vines In the canopy, making screeching sounds Oh how I wish I could suddenly be A baboon, orangutang or any monkey! Why am I not a monkey? x2 I see the animals, roaming through the brush Could be a hippo, a camel or maybe just A moose, a donkey or an armadillo Oh how I want to be like a lemur or gorilla Why am I not a monkey? x4 If I had a tail, I’d swing through trees all day If I were a monkey, it wouldn’t socially awkward when I say Ooo ee oo ee oo ahh ahh Why am I not a monkey? x6

There comes a point in everyone’s life When it’s finally time to leave home My time has come, it’s time to go To wander away from where my family roams My father said, Bye, Son Be a good buffalo Be kind to everyone Everyone’s go trouble you know I’m just another bison, a brother to my bros The eldest of the three Barton buffalos Farewell, Dad and Mom. So long, Ben and Barry I’m leaving now with a song since leaving can be scary My mother said, Bye, Son We’ll see you soon Have a great year You’ll be back here in early June I’m off to Bison school to get my buffalo degree In Buffalo, New York. It’s tough to go and leave my family But I’ll learn lots of things that I can bring back to my herd As I leave, I’ll remember these encouraging words My parents said Bye, Son Be a good buffalo Be kind to everyone Everyone’s got trouble you know My brother said Bye, Bill Can’t wait to take your room I’ve been waiting for this moment since 1992 Everyone said Bye, Son We’ll miss you but we’ll call And when you come back, it’s be like you were never gone at all
