On a green mountain grows a vine.
Under the vine there hangs a copper bell.
When the wind blows,
the vine moves, and so does the bell.
When the wind stops,
the vine stops, and the bell stops too.

Jack rabbit, jack rabbit,

Ripe and shiny chestnuts,
I’ll find and bring them home.

There’s a tadpole swimming in a stream, wriggling, wriggling, wriggling around.
Back legs out, front legs out, hopping, hopping, now he’s a frog.

Back legs out, front legs out, hopping, hopping, now he’s a frog.
