Song: Raccoon Tune
Sung to the tune of "I've Been Working on the Railroad"
Step 1
"Raccoon Tune"

I’m a hungry little raccoon.
It is time for me to eat.
I’ve been sleeping all day long
In my hole up in a tree.
Now the sun is on its way down,
And my tummy starts to growl.
I’m off to find some bugs and crawdads,
But I’ll watch out for the owls!


- Jennifer Bové
