There’s a small kangaroo G
Who shops around town Am
Puts things in her pouch Am
Then she hops up and down G
Sometimes things break G
And her pouch is a mess Am
Does she throw it away? A7
I bet you can guess! No! She says, D-D-D7
Cho: “Why should I throw it away, away C-D-G-Em
I’ll use it again some day. C-D7-G (C-G)
And I’d have to find another one then C-D-D-Em
So I’m gonna use this one again, ... C-D-Em-Em
And again and again, and again and again, C-C-D-D
And again and again and again!” D-D7-G (C-G)
She can wash her pouch out!
“When I bounce, it’ll dry it!” (And she bounces to dry it!)
It’s a little more work
But y’know, we should try it!
Let’s all do the same
With the stuff that we use
Write our name on our own
So we know whose is whose!
And again and again, and again and again, C-D
And again and again and again! D-D7-G (C-G)
