Rainforest Song

Finally, before we go back to animals and camera traps, I want to share a song teachers Mike and Jill wrote for the Gallon Jug school kids. It is to be sung to the tune of "I've Been Working on the Railroad." The kids sang it at the memorial service last week. It is appropriate for Sir Barry too, who loved the rainforests of Gallon Jug Estate and Chan Chich Lodge.

Rainforest Song

I've been walking in the rainforest
All among the trees

I've been walking in the rainforest
Where I saw the bats and bees

Parrots, butterflies and toucans
Monkeys and hummingbirds galore

Frogs and snakes and spotted jaguars
On the rainforest floor!

I've been walking in the rainforest
All among the green

I've been walking in the rainforest
Where the plant life must be seen

Ferns and mosses and lianas
Orchids and honeysuckle too

Oh how special is the rainforest
A magic place come true!
