It’s time for a little bit of fun! Do you know the best thing about creating a list of top 5 silly animal songs? I get to include whatever song I like on it. With so much bad and sad news, I bet one of these songs will make you grin or whistle or sing out loud!
What songs would be on your Top 5 List? Inquiring minds want to know!!
Let’s get started with the Top 5 Countdown!
# 5: If I Could Talk to the Animals -- Doctor Doolittle (musical)
Corny but fun musical about an animal communicator. Rex Harrison doesn’t actually sing, but the lyrics are funny. “Discussing Eastern art and dramas with intellectual llamas.” And I really enjoyed the Eddie Murphy re-make as well!
#4: Never Smile at a Crocodile – Peter Pan (movie)
Don’t you love that Nana the dog was the children’s’ nanny? As I watch the clip, I’m not sure Captain Hook got away from the crocodile.
#3: I Taut I Taw a Puddy Tat -- Mel Blanc
I grew up with the Loony Toons characters. Do you remember Tweety & Sylvester? I remember Tweety always said, “I Taut I Taw a Puddy Tat,” but didn’t know there was a song! And Sylvester’s favorite saying, Suffering Succotash! (You have to say this with a LOT of spit!)
#2: You Can’t Roller Skate in a Buffalo Herd -- Roger Miller
“But you can be happy if you’ve a mind to…” A very silly song with a sublime reminder that is priceless!
AND NOW FOR THE SONG WE’VE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR!
Actually, it’s a tie! I love both of these songs!
#1: The Chipmunk Song -- Christmas Don’t be Late -- Dave & the Chipmunks
ALVIN!!! I have never tired of hearing and singing this incredibly silly animal song!
And #1 Again: Who Let the Dogs Out -- Baha Men
Because it’s the bestest, funniest, run-around-the-house-with-your-pets kind of song!
