All God's creatures got a place in the choir,
Some sing low and some sing higher;
Some sing out loud on the telephone wire,
Some just clap their hands, their paws or anything they got now!

All God's creatures got a place in the choir,
Some sing low and some sing higher;
Some sing out loud on the telephone wire,
Some just clap their hands, their paws or anything they got now!

Listen to the bass it's the one on the bottom,
Where the bullfrog croaks and the hippopotamus
Moans and groans with a big to-toot,
And the old cow just goes moo.

The dogs and the cats they take up the middle,
Where the honey bee hums and the crickets fiddle,
The donkey brays and the pony neighs,
And the old gray badger sighs.

All God's creatures got a place in the choir,
Some sing low and some sing higher;
Some sing out loud on the telephone wire,
Some just clap their hands, their paws or anything they got now!

Oh, listen to the top where the little birds singing,
All the melodies and the high notes swinging;
And the hoot owl cries over everything,
Blackbird disagrees.

Singing in the night time singing in the day,
The little duck quacks and he's on his way;
And the otter hasn't got much to say,
And the porcupine talks to himself.

All God's creatures got a place in the choir,
Some sing low and some sing higher;
Some sing out loud on the telephone wire,
Some just clap their hands, their paws or anything they got now!

It's a simple song of living sung everywhere,
By the ox and the fox and the grizzly bear,
Grumpy alligator and the hog above,
The sly old weasel and the turtle dove.

All God's creatures got a place in the choir,
Some sing low and some sing higher;
Some sing out loud on the telephone wire,
Some just clap their hands, their paws or anything they got now!

Whoa!
All God's creatures got a place in the choir,
Some sing low and some sing higher;
Some sing out loud on the telephone wire,
Some just clap their hands, their paws or anything they got now!

All God's creatures got a place in the choir,
Some sing low and some sing higher;
Some sing out loud on the telephone wire,
Some just clap their hands, their paws or anything they got now!
Hands, their paws or anything they got now!
Hands, their paws or anything they got now!
