THE BALLAD OF CAPTAIN K.
( Lyrics in the key of G)
When it's mornin' and you're yawnin'
here's some fun that you can do;
Travel to the Treasure House with Captain Kangaroo!
In his pockets he has lots
of interesting things for you,
and you'll meet the funnest folks with Captain Kangaroo.
Mr. Moose will tell a joke that begins with "Knock",
or for a poem we'll wake up Grandfather Clock.
Tom Terrific calls,
"Hero of them all."
Watch for ping pong balls!
Bunny Rabbit has a carrot that he tricked the Captain for.
You can bet before it's over
he'll have six more!
Mr. Greenjeans comes to visit
with a pony from the farm,
or perhaps a pair of monkeys, one on each arm!
Everyday brings new and exciting things
when he shakes his keys on their rings!
Travel to the zoo!
Poems and stories too!
There's so much to do!!
So come on and join the fun
we will surely have a ball.
Captain K. will make your day,
so let's go one and all!!
