Hum! hum! Hum!
Listen to the hummingbird.
Poor old humming bird,
Knows the tune but not the words.
Hum! hum! Hum!
Listen to the hummingbird.
Hum! hum! Hum!

Tell me monkey if you know
How the words to my song go.
‘Chatter’ said the monkey,
‘Chatter, chatter, chatter,
I don’t think the words to your song matter.’

Tell me donkey if you know
How the words to my song go.
‘Nay!’ Said the donkey, ‘Nay! Nay! Nay!
A hummingbird should hum all day.’

Tell me crocodile if you know
How the words to my song go.
‘Snap!’ Said the crocodile, ‘Snap! Snap! Snap!
If you don’t know the words you can always clap.’

Tell me goldfish if you know
How the words to my song go.
‘Bubble’ said the goldfish,
‘Bubble, Bubble, Bubble.
The words to your song are too much trouble.’

Tell me wise owl if you know
How the words to my song go.
‘Well’ said the wise owl, ‘Don’t be glum.
The words to your song go Hum! Hum! Hum!’
