Good job gin, and shakers, bells and triangles are the splashing water. And the drum is the sound of elephants running in the jungle. All right, friends, here we go. Once upon a time, there were two friends. There was a bird and a frog. And they were sitting by the river talking about what kind of bugs they ate for breakfast. They didn't know it but in the water was a big, hungry crocodile. And he was looking for something to eat when he saw the bird and the frog. And the crocodile said I'm gonna have them for my lunch. So he swam closer and closer till he was right next to them and they still didn't see him. The bird didn't see him and the frog didn't see him Suddenly the crocodile jumped out of the water splashing water Samson, shakers, shells and triangles. And the crocodile opened up his big jaws and he was just about to eat up the bird and the frog. But then the elephants went running through the jungle. And it was so loud it scared the crocodile. He jumped back in the water and swam away as fast as he could go. All the instruments, shakers, cows, drums, triangles, everything. And the bird and the frog are safe and sound. And that's the end of the story. Good job, friends. All right, friends. So we're going to finish up with one more song. This is the Color Song.
