Lyrics

There's a little white duck sitting in the water,
A little white duck doing what he oughter.
He took a bite of a lily pad,
Flapped his wings and he said "I'm glad;
I'm a little white duck sitting in the water,
Quack! Quack! Quack!'.

There's a little green frog swimming in the water,
A little green frog doing what he oughter.
He jumped right off of the lily pad,
That the little duck bit and he said "I'm glad;
I'm a little green frog swimming in the water,
Ribbit! Ribbit! Ribbit!'.

There's a little black bug floating on the water,
A little black bug doing what he oughter.
He tickled the frog on the lily pad,
That the little duck bit and he said "I'm glad;
I'm a little black bug floating on the water,
Bzzz! Bzzz! Bzzz!'.

There's a little red snake playing in the water,
A little red snake doing what he oughter.
He frightened the duck and the frog so bad,
He ate the bug and he said "I'm glad;
I'm a little red snake playing in the water,
Hiss! Hiss! Hiss!'.

There's a little white duck sitting in the water,
A little white duck doing what he oughter.
He took a bite of a lily pad,
Flapped his wings and he said "I'm glad;
I'm a little white duck sitting in the water,
Quack! Quack! Quack!'.

Now there's nobody left sitting in the water,
Nobody left doing what he oughter.
There's nothing left but the lily pad,
The duck and the frog ran away, I'm sad;
'cause there's nobody left sitting in the water,
Boo! Hoo! Hoo!

Information About Little White Duck

This song was originally sang by Burl Ives. He sang it on "Burl Ives Sings Little White Duck and Other Children's Favorites".

This song has also been performed by famous children's singer, Raffi.

This song can be a useful tool to help parents and teachers teach colors and animals. This song can also be used to help teach words that are also sounds, for example, in the lyrics "Hiss! Hiss! Hiss!' The teacher or parent can illustrate to the child that this is the sound a snake makes, but can also be a word that describes the sound.

While being a great song to teach animals, this is also one of the silly songs that teachers and parents can use to teach their children about nonsense. We all know that ducks cannot talk, so it is important that we teach that to the children while teaching the silliness of this song.

he album was reissued by CBS Records Inc. in 1974. It's often thought of as the best childrens" records ever produced!
