Lyrics

Hey diddle diddle
The cat did a piddle
Behind the kitchen door
The little dog laughed,to see such fun
so the cat did a little bit more.

Mike and Monica teach Skippy about percussion instruments!
KINDERZOO has its very own rainforest and some of the animals that can be found there are: Poppy the Orangutan, Mike the Proboscis Monkey, Sonny the Sun Bear, Boris the Slow Loris, Colin the Colobus Monkey, Marty the Mandrill. We also find out how Marty the Mandrill got his colourful face.
In this episode we go on safari in Africa and meet Polly the Springbok Antelope, Harry the Hippopotamus, Rhiannon the Rhinoceros and we see two of our favourites running around – Debra the Forgetful Zebra and Ryan the Lion. Our KInderzoo Tale this week is about how Gerry the Giraffe got his long neck.

Information About Hey Diddle Diddle - Parody

Contributed by one of the BusSongs visitors. Thanks!

One theory states that the rhyme is a lesson in astronomy, in which all, or nearly all "characters" in "Hey Diddle Diddle" are constellations visible only in the April night sky.

Hey diddle diddle, the Cat (Leo – the Lion) and the Fiddle (Lyra – the Lyre), the Cow (Taurus – the Bull) jumped over the Moon (the Moon); the Little Dog (Canis Minor – the Lesser Dog) laughed to see such sport, and the Dish (Crater – a dish shaped constellation) ran after the Spoon (Ursa Major – the Big Dipper).

It just so happens that April is the only month when all of these constellations can be seen in the night sky, and this was a signal to the early Europeans, mainly the English, that it was time to plant the crops.
