Making Shadows... added 1-05-02 Original Author Unknown

Sung to: "Twinkle, Twinkle"

Shadows big and shadows small
I see shadows on the wall
Shadows here and shadows there
Lots of shadows everywhere
All the shadows that I see
Big or small they don't scare me.

I will make some big and small
I make shadows by the light
In my room so late at night.

I'm Dreaming Of The Great Groundhog added 12-05-04 Original Author Unknown

Sung to:
"White Christmas"

I'm dreaming of the Great Groundhog
Just like I do this time each year
When he brings nice weather
And brings us together
To wait for him to appear.

With every groundhog card I write.
May your Groundhog's Day be bright
When the Great Groundhog visits you tonight.


Groundhog Wonderland added 12-05-04 Original Author Unknown

Sung to:
"Winter Wonderland"

Groundhogs hoot, are your listening?
'Neath the sun, all is glist'ning
A real warm light we're happy tonight
Waitin' in a Groundhog wonderland.

In the field, we're watching for the Groundhog.
We've been waiting for this day all year.
Do you think that he will see his shadow?
And will we know if springtime's almost here?

Later on, while we're eating
What we got on Groundhog Day
We'll share all our sacks
Of good Groundhog snacks
Waitin' in a Groundhog wonderland.
