Composed in 2018, it is the brand new addition to the Animal Songs for children series. It is composed for SA and piano and has simple 2 part harmony throughout.
Running down the plains I see your long legs racing,
Your long legs racing and your big wings flapping.
But in the distance there’s a kangaroo chasing,
Down the straight he comes, his long tail bouncing.
Emu, kangaroo, who’s the fastest of the two in the desert?
The emu has the advantage, the longest legs in the country!
He leads the way with his flapping, But will the kangaroo catch him?
Bounce, bounce bounce goes the kangaroo
He is catching up to the emu,
Boing, boing, boing, he is hot in pursuit!
Who will win the dispute? …. Sherelle Eyles
