My daughter is reading this book at her school. I thought it would be fun to put this great book from Giles Andreae and Guy Parker-Rees to some silly music. By the way all the music you hear was created using ukuleles.
As requested by Asali Sunshine here are the chords for this song.
[C]Gerald was a tall giraffe
whose neck was long and slim.
But his [F]knees were awfully crooked
and his [G7]legs were rather thin.
[C]He was very good at standing still
and munching shoots off trees.
But [F]when he tried to run around,
he [G7]buckled at the [C]knees.
Now every year in Africa... (use the same as above)
The [F]warthogs started [G7]waltzing
and the [C]rhinos rock 'n' rolled.
The [F]lions danced a [G7]tango
that was [C]elegant and bold
The [F]chimps all did a [G7]cha-cha
with a [C]very Latin [C7]feel,
and [F]eight baboons then team up
for a [G7]splendid Scottish [C]reel.
The rest of the book follows this pattern. Even the slow part at the middle of the book that begins with "Then he found a little clearing" uses the exact same chords as the warthogs part.
