There is some learning gonna happen with lyrics like these!
Manatee manatee living peacefully
Where the river meets the ocean estuary
Down in Florida by the Everglades
You can find her munching on the grassy blades
Manatee manatee living in the sea
She doesn’t need money or a pedigree
All she really needs is a safe habitat
Where the water is warm and the land is flat
Manatee manatee swimming in the sea
To let her live her life we can all agree
To slow our boats down and try to help her out
So there will always be some Manatees about
The glacier is a giant sheet of ice
The glacier looks like a pile of rice
The glacier is so dog gone cold
That you find it near the North or the South Pole
The glacier very slowly moves
The glacier sure can get into a groove
The glacier can grind a mountain down
Let’s hope it isn’t heading towards our town
Like sledding on some snow
The glacier likes to go
Down the mountain right into the sea
Where it might give birth
Where the ocean meets the earth
To an iceberg floating away free
The glacier is really pretty cool
The glacier is nature’s carving tool
The glacier might live for centuries
Until it slowly melts into the sea
I loved the science content of the lyrics. I loved the variety of genres. I loved the music. I loved the variety of performers. I loved this album! Whether you are a science teacher, a parent who wants good music filling their kids’ heads or a kid who loves great music, there is at least one song on this album for you. Our favorite was Dison the Bison, but the Buffalo or Bison one really had us debating, researching and discussing. This album is chock-full of good music and learning!
