Song: If I Were a Walrus
Sung to the tune of "If I Had a Hammer"
Step 1
"If I Were a Walrus"

If I were a walrus,
I’d live up near the North Pole.
I’d swim around the ocean
Where the water is cold.
I’d eat crunchy shellfish.
I’d hang out on an iceberg.
I’d relax with lots of buddies
all snuggled up beside me.
Oh, life would be grand!


- Jennifer Bové
