Song: Big Brown Bison
Sung to the tune of "Baa, Baa, Black Sheep"
Step 1
"Big Brown Bison"

Big, brown bison,
Where is your home?
Out on the prairie
Is where I roam.


I live with a herd
And we run fast.
I kick up clouds of dust
When I stampede past.


Big, brown bison,
What do you eat?
I munch on the grass
Under my feet.


I walk and I chew
All through the day.
When I eat up all the grass,
I must be on my way.


Big, brown bison,
Where is your bed?
Right on the ground with
The stars overhead.


- Jennifer Bové
