Possum

Possum (2013)  from the Animal Songs for Children series is a humorous song about the Possums that live in our roof in Queensland and how they make a lot of noise at night. Possum encourages children to think about the impact of the urban environment on native animals. It has a cheerful, catchy tune and fun words that Primary school children will easily memorise. The optional actions require the children to stomp on the words “doof-doof-doof.”

It is available for SA & piano or Unison & piano.

Oh possum going ‘doof-doof-doof’

you are keeping me awake in the middle of the night

And I need to get some sleep!

You could have a lovely home in a tree, lots of nectar, flowers and fruit to eat,

you could glide into the trees with your tail so long, in a greener place to be

 Oh sleep!” …. Sherelle Eyles
