THE POSSUM SONG 

 

A little baby possum was hangin by its tail

Started swinging back and forth

Which made its mama wail,

"Possums aren't meant to swing so high,"

She said with a nervous dance.

But the little one swung until it went

Clear 'round that branch!

 

     Chorus

    "I'm awesome, awesome,"

     Said the little possum

    "I'm awesome--and that's that."

 

The possums when out walking,

Little one ran ahead,

Ran and raced around them all

Until its Papa said,
"Possums aren't built for speed, dear."
But the little one ran each day

Until it raced a big grey squirrel

And blew that squirrel away!

                      Chorus

 

The possums found a food box;

Papa tried to break it.

Mama tried to gnaw right through;

Sister tried to shake it.

Little baby possum said,

"See how this is shut?"

Fingered with that little lock

And opened the box right up!

                    Chorus
