Song Lyrics

Greg: Here comes a bear (Other Wiggles: Stomping, stomping)

A very scary bear (Other Wiggles: Stomping, stomping)

Paws up in the air (Other Wiggles: Stomping, stomping)

Stomping everywhere

Anthony: Kangaroo jumps (Jeff: Boing, boing)

He jumps so high (Jeff: Boing, boing)

He almost touches the sky (Jeff: Boing, boing)

The kangaroo jumps so high

Greg:Here comes a snake (Murray: Ssss, ssss)

Slithering along (Murray: Ssss, ssss)

His body's very long (Murray: Ssss, ssss)

Slippery snake slithers along

Anthony: Wombat crawls (Unforgotten Wiggles: Crawling, crawling)

Nose to the ground (Unforgotten Wiggles: Crawling, crawling)

His making lots of sound (Unforgotten Wiggles: Crawling, crawling)

Crawling everywhere

Greg: Here comes a bear (Other Wiggles: Stomping, stomping)

A very scary bear (Other Wiggles: Stomping, stomping)

Paws up in the air (Other Wiggles: Stomping, stomping)

Stomping everywhere
