Be Kind to Your Webfooted Friends

Author: Unknown

Be kind to your web-footed friends
For a duck may be somebody's mother,
Be kind to your friends in the swamp (
Alternate line: She lives on the edge of a swamp)
Where the weather is always damp.

You may think that this is the end,
Well it is, but to prove we're all liars,
We're going to sing it again,
Only this time we'll sing a little higher
.

(Repeat the song but sing it a bit higher. Continue for as many rounds as you can stand!)

Last Verse

You may think that this is the end.... Well you're right!

Alternate Version


Mixed together with words from "Barefoot Boy in Shoes" and "Ain't We Crazy"

'Twas midnight on the ocean, not a streetcar was in sight.
The sun was shining brightly in the middle of the night.
A barefoot boy with shoes on stood there sitting in the tree
And when he put his glasses on, he heard this melody:

Be kind to your web-footed friends
For a duck may be somebody's brother.
Be kind to the denizen of the swamp;
He's a dilly through and through
. (Alternate line: Where the weather's always damp)
You may think that this is the end,
But it isn't 'cause there's another chorus.

'Twas midnight on the ocean when the rain began to snow
He hurried to me slowly 'cause the time had come to go.
I said I'd wait forever if it didn't take too long;
And suddenly we harmonized this crazy, mixed-up song.

Be kind to your web-footed friends
For a duck may be somebody's brother.
Be kind to the denizen of the swamp;
He's a dilly through and through. (
Alternate line: Where the weather's always damp)
You may think that this is the end,
But it isn't 'cause there's another chorus.

'Twas midnight on the ocean on the day I married him.
I didn't know his name was Fred, that's why I called him Tim. Be kind to your web-footed friends
For a duck may be somebody's brother.
Be kind to the denizen of the swamp;
He's a dilly through and through. (
Alternate line: Where the weather's always damp)
You may think that this is the end,
Well it is.
