The Little Green Owl

The Little Green Owl

This is a song I came up with in May 2021 inspired by wierd and wonderful phrases that come up on Duolingo, and other language courses. A little green owl, known as Duo, is the logo of Duolingo

The Little Green Owl

The little green owl once said to me
Why don't you sit down under my tree
I can teach you things that'll make you smile
So sit and listen for a while

Let's talk about penguins and bears that sing
About dogs and ducks and pieces of string
Some of this might be a little crazy
But that helps them stick and not go hazy

The moon is yellow because it's made of cheese
Did the blackbirds find the seagull's keys?
The hedgehog puts meatballs in the pan
The bear can't dance but the little duck can

Oh why is your pink cat wearing that hat?
Where's all the butter and is that your bat?
Such a fish does not drink any beer
And the rhinoceros has nothing to fear

That little green owl has taught me a lot
About elephants and badgers and dragons hot
The more you learn the more fun it'll be
If you just keep at it you will see

Here's a recording of this song:

Simon Ager The Little Green Owl
