All the children sing!




Deep in the jungle where the mighty tiger lies,

Bill and his elephant were taken by surprise.

So, Captain Marvel zapped him right between the eyes – ZAP!

All the children sing!




The children asked him if to kill was not a sin.

"Not when he looked so fierce" his mommy butted in.

"If looks could kill it would have been us instead of him."

All the children sing!
