Song: Elephant Seal Sing-a-Long
Sung to the tune of "Buffalo Gals, Won't You Come Out Tonight?"
Steps
Step 1
"Elephant Seal Sing-a-Long"
 

Elephant seal dives deep in the sea,
Deep in the sea, deep in the sea.
Elephant seal dives deep in the sea
To gobble up fishes and squid.

 

When he is full, he sleeps on the beach,
Sleeps on the beach, sleeps on the beach.
When he is full, he sleeps on the beach
With his big nose resting on the sand.

 

Don’t wake him up, or he’ll open his mouth,
Open his mouth, open his mouth.
Don’t wake him up, or he’ll open his mouth
And let out a mighty loud roar!

 

- Jennifer Bové
