  • Song Lyrics:
    You’re wearing your squeaky shoes,
    And right there taking a snooze
    Is a tiger, so how do you walk on by?
    Silently ... silently ... silent ... L-Y

    You’re a secret agent man
    Who’s after the secret plan,
    How do you act so they don’t know you’re as spy?
    Normally, normally, normal, L-Y

    At an eating contest, you boast
    That you can eat the most;
    How do you down your fiftieth piece of pie?
    Eagerly, eagerly, eager, L-Y

    On the lake, your boat upsets
    And your clothes got soaking wet.
    How do you stand and wait for them to dry?
    D-d-d-d-d patiently, d-d-d-d-d patiently, patient, L-Y

    In the public library
    You fall and you hurt your knee,
    But the sign says, “quiet please,” so how can you cry?
    Quietly, quietly, quiet, L-Y

    As you walk along the street,
    A porcupine you meet.
    How do you shake his hand when he says hi?
    Carefully, carefully, careful, L-Y

    You enter a very dark room
    And sitting there in the gloom
    Is Dracula! Now, how do you say goodbye?
    Immediately, immediately, immediate-L-Y!
    (Bill L)
    L-Y(View Larger)
