Lyrics

Wiggly Safari

Hoo-oo Hoo-oo
Hoo-oo Hoo-oo
Do the owl (What a ripper!)
Hoo-oo Hoo-oo
Hoo-oo Hoo-oo
Do the owl (Absolutely gorgeous!)

The owl is a type of bird
Found all around the world
Use your hands and make big owl eyes
We're gonna do the owl

Hoo-oo Hoo-oo
Hoo-oo Hoo-oo
Do the owl (Gee whiz!)
Hoo-oo Hoo-oo
Hoo-oo Hoo-oo
Do the owl (Now that's a cute little critter!)

They come out by the light of the moon
That's when they find their food
So stretch your silent wings
We're gonna do the owl

Hoo-oo Hoo-oo

"G'day, I'm Steve Irwin. Did you know that owls are found all around the world? They can be tiny or huge, they have great big claws to pick up their prey. And mate, can they ever hear things or what! Hoo."

They live in a cave or tree
They use their great big eyes to see
Flying from tree to tree
We're gonna do the owl

Hoo-oo Hoo-oo
Hoo-oo Hoo-oo
Do the owl
(Repeat and fade)

Pumpkin Face

Hoo-oo Hoo-oo
Hoo-oo Hoo-oo
Do the owl 
(O-o-o-o-owl)
Hoo-oo Hoo-oo
Hoo-oo Hoo-oo
Do the owl
(O-o-o-o-owl)

The owl is a type of bird
Found all around the world
Use your hands to make big, owl eyes
We're gonna do the owl

Hoo-oo Hoo-oo
Hoo-oo Hoo-oo
Do the owl
(O-o-o-o-owl)
Hoo-oo Hoo-oo
Hoo-oo Hoo-oo
Do the owl
(O-o-o-o-owl)

They come out by the light of the moon
That's when they find their food
So stretch your silent wings
We're gonna do the owl

Hoo-oo hoo-oo

"We love you to do the owl dance everybody! Gee c'mon! Oh yeah man, do the owl! That's it, spread your wings! Gee c'mon! Hoot Hoot!"

They live in a cave or tree
They use their great big eyes to see
Flying from tree to tree
We're gonna do the owl

Hoo-oo Hoo-oo
Hoo-oo Hoo-oo
Do the owl
(O-o-o-o-owl)
Hoo-oo Hoo-oo
Hoo-oo Hoo-oo
Do the owl
(O-o-o-o-owl)
REPEAT X2 & FADE OUT
