Songs
Little Rocky Raccoon
Little Rocky Raccoon
Walking thru the forest
Digging up the wormies
And Bopping them in the head.

Little Rocky Raccoon
Swimming in the river,
Catching little minnows,
and Bopping them in the head.

(Slowly....)
Along comes Mama Raccoon,
And she says:

Little Rocky Racoon
I don't want to see you
Digging up the wormies,
And bopping them in the head!!!
Raccoon Sitting in a Tree
Tune: "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star"

Raccoon, raccoon, climbing a tree,
Wearing a mask, you can't fool me.
Hiding there so I can't see
What you're doing in that tree.
Raccoon, raccoon, climbing a tree,
Wearing a mask, you can't fool me.
