1. When I hear words that rhyme,
I always tap in time.
And if you agree,
Just tap along with me.
So listen for the rhyming
And be quick about your timing,
Singing trumpety-ah tra-la la loo.
5. I saw a sleepy skunk
Who slept on piles of junk.
He didn’t mind the clunk
When he got into his bunk.
He joined us in the garden
For a lovely cup of tea,
Singing trumpety-ah tra-la la loo.

2. I saw a great big bear
Who had no clothes to wear,.
Except his own brown hair,
But he really didn’t care.
He joined us in the garden
For a lovely cup of tea,
Singing trumpety-ah tra-la la loo.
6. I saw a bit black bug
A’slurping on the rug
She shared her milkshake mug
With a slippy-slidey slug.
They joined us in the garden
For a lovely cup of tea,
Singing trumpety-ah tra-la la loo..

3. I saw an old gray goose
Who said her tooth was loose
Until a friendly moose
Gave her watermelon juice.
They joined us in the garden
For a lovely cup of tea,
Singing trumpety-ah tra-la la loo.
7. When I hear words that rhyme,
I always tap in time.
And if you agree,
Just tap along with me.
So listen for the rhyming
And be quick about your timing,
Singing trumpety-ah tra-la la loo.
Singing trumpety-ah tra-la la loo.

4. I saw an purple pig
Whose ears were broad and big
She liked to dance the jig
In a wishy-washy wig.
She joined us in the garden
For a lovely cup of tea,
Singing trumpety-ah tra-la la loo.
