Laugh Ourselves Silly (The Nanny-Nanny Boo-Boo Song)
Teaching Protective Characteristics of Animals
Lucas Miller

This song is available on Lucas Miller's There's a Chicken on My Head!

Teaching about animal defenses?  Want a really silly song to get your kids laughing and grooving?  With verses about porcupines, turtles and skunks and a chorus your kids will be singing along with from the very first listen, this song is for you!       -- Lucas Miller

Nanny-nanny boo-boo! 
You can't get me!
I'm a porcupine
I'm all spiny and prickly

If you try and catch me
You're gonna be sorry!
I'm dressed to quill
It'd give me such a thrill if you'd kiss me

So take your sharpened claws or your poison fangs
Or whatever other weapons you've got
Find someone else for lunch
I'm gonna laugh myself silly

So ha ha-ha ha-ha ha, nyeah, nyeah
Nanny-nanny boo-boo,  me oh, my
See you later alligator, take care Mr. Bear, Bye-bye!

*Bl-bl-bl* you can’t hurt me
I’m a turtle, you see, I’ve got this hard shell that protects me
I know it’s heavy and it makes me walk slowly
But this dome’s my home and it keeps me safe and happy
So if you try and bite I’ll just go inside
You’re gonna break your teeth on my shell
Find someone else for lunch I’m gonna laugh myself silly

You can go ahead and try
I'm a funky skunky all black except for my white stripes
My colors should warn you, I'll make you go pee-yew!
If you snarl your lip I'm gonna give you a whiff of my perfume
Yeah, I'm the kind of guy who'll bring a tear to your eye
With the sweet smell of success
Me and the porcupine are gonna go and laugh ourselves silly!

So ha ha-ha ha-ha ha, nyeah, nyeah
Nanny-nanny boo-boo,  me oh, my
After while crocodile, jump in a lake rattlesnake, Bye-bye!
