Be kind to your web-footed friends For that duck may be somebody's mother, She lives in a nest in a swamp Where the weather is always damp.
You may think that this is the end, Well it is, but to prove we're all liars, We're going to sing it again, Only this time we'll sing a little higher.
[Repeat the song but sing it a bit higher. Continue for as many rounds as you can stand.]
Finally, end with: You may think that this is the end.... Well you're right! Be kind to your old umbrella, For some day it may be under the weather. Be kind to your old pair of shoes, And they'll keep out the rain and mud. Be kind to your fur-bearing friends, For a skunk may be somebody's brother. Be kind to your friends with the stripes Including raccoons and snipes.
