"Marvelous Mallards"
 

Mallard ducks came flying down,
Flying down, flying down.
Mallard ducks came flying down
From the blue sky.

 

They landed with a great big splash,
Great big splash, great big splash.
They landed with a great big splash
On a farm pond.

 

I watched them nibble plants and bugs,
Plants and bugs, plants and bugs.
I watched them nibble plants and bugs
In the water.

 

Then up they flew with a quack, quack, quack;
Quack, quack, quack; Quack, quack, quack.
Up they flew with a quack, quack, quack.
Good-bye, mallards!

 

- Jennifer Bové
