Ostrich Hatches
Marla Lewis

This song is available on Marla Lewis' We Love to Read Literacy Program.
This song is based on the "Ostrich Hatches" story by Bernadette Falletta  

This song is available as an individual download

Charles and Mitch were playing catch 
When Bluebird called down from her branch: "STOP! 
Right here on this grassy patch
A giant egg's about to hatch!"
Imagine everyone's surprise
An ostrich hatched before their eyes!
She yawned and stretched and scratched her head, 
And the first words Baby Ostrich said (were:)

Teach me how to cha-cha-cha!
I want to learn how to cha-cha-cha! 
Teach me now to cha-cha-cha! 
So I can be your partner!

Charles said. "Cha-Cha! What is THAT?'
"It's a Latin Dance," the bluebird laughed. 
"One foot forward, one foot back,
Then, cha-cha-cha! You're right on track (let me)

Teach you how to cha-cha-cha 
Watch! One-two, cha-cha-cha! 
Pay attention, cha-cha-cha! 
Now you can be my partner!

Ostrich loved the dance so much
She had such grace, a magic touch!
But when the boys took up the beat
She cried, "Ouch! You're dancing on my feet!" (let me)

Teach you how to cha-cha-cha! 
All together, now, cha-cha-cha! 
I'll teach you how to cha-cha-cha 
So you can be my partner
