My Dewlap
Animal Song for Teaching About a Moose
Kim Soleski Ward


This song is available on Kim Soleski Ward's Sing a Song of Canada.

There once was a moose walking down my street,
One day in the early spring.
His antlers were covered with a velvety skin,
They crowned him like a king and as he walked,

He was swinging his dewlap.
That flap of skin hanging down from his chin.
He was swinging his dewlap.
That’s a part of his face he could never, never replace.           
           
In the summer I saw that moose again,
Playing tag with a skunk in the pouring rain.
His antlers were humongous, spreading out from his top.
When the skunk tried to tag him, the moose yelled, “Stop!”, he said,

“Please don’t tag my dewlap,
That flap of skin hanging down from my chin.
Oh, please don’t tag my dewlap.
That’s a part of my face I could never, never replace.”

In the autumn I was raking the leaves,
The moose was rubbing his antlers on the trunk of a tree.
The velvety skin was peeling away.
He was with a lady moose and I heard him say,

“Please don’t tickle my dewlap,
That flap of skin hanging down from my chin.
Oh, please don’t tickle my dewlap.
That’s a part of my face I could never, never replace.”

Yes, the moose is an interesting animal,
With his flappy dewlap and his rack of bone.
He’s a plant eating member of the deer family,
And he calls the forest his home.

In the winter, the moose and I were skating on a pond,
The antlers fell off as he was twirling around,
But don’t you worry, they’ll grow back in the spring,
The moose said, “Wow!!  It’s a lucky thing that
                       
I still have my dewlap,
That flap of skin hanging down from my chin.
I still have my dewlap,
That’s a part of my face I could never, never replace.
