I Went to the Animal Fest
(tune: I Went to the Animal Fair)

I went to the Animal Fest
The creatures were dressed in their best
The lion and bear
Had beads in their hair
The gorilla wore a plaid vest.
The penguin wore his tux
And ribbons adorned the ducks
The mice and the bats
Wore beautiful hats
And the rabbits looked deluxe.

For everyone to try. (pretend to swing a bat over you head)

We’re going to have a party!
What will there be to eat?
Some popcorn and chips (pretend to eat munchies)

We’ll have some fizzy punch (Pretend to drink)
And pizza would be great (rub tummy to show you are hungry)
Of course, we can’t forget (shake your head, no)
The ice cream and cake. (Pretend to eat something with a fork)

We’re going to have a party!
We’ll have some games to play
Pin the tail on the donkey (pretend to hold a tail and spin around)
You’re going the wrong way! (walk in one direction, then turn the other way)
We’ll do some party dances (do your own dance move)
It’s going to be such fun
Look for your invitation (pretend to open up a card)
And don’t forget to come! (jump up and down in excitement)
