Play Song
A little boy banged his drum so loud,
La da da da, da da da da
Boom! Boom! Boom!
That the thunder up in a thunder cloud,
La da da da, da da da da
Boom! Boom! Boom!
Said, "Since I can't be heard, why then,
I'm never going to thunder again!"
La da da da, da da da da,
Boom! Boom! Boom!

But not far away there lived a girl,
La da da da, da da da da,
Shhhhh,
She was always silent and always still,
La da da da, da da da da,
Shhhhh,
A fly once said to a ladybird,
"She's the quietest child I never heard!"
La da da da, da da da da
Shhhhh.

(Put fingers to lips for 'shhh' part.)
