Humphrey the Hamster Singing
Lyrics by Suzy Red, Melody and Performance by Liz Sanchez

(1) I'm here to tell you a story 'bout me
I'm Humphrey the hamster
Glad-glad as can be.
I am a student in Mrs. Brisbane's class
I eat carrots and lettuce,
Some broccoli, and grass.
Singin' squeak, squeak, squeak, squeak,
I sure hope I'll pass.

(2) My cage has a wheel and a ladder
It's true, cause, I'm quite an acrobat,
Better than you.
I climb up my ladder
And swing from the rungs,
Then I call to my friends
At the top of my lungs.
They hear squeak, squeak, squeak, squeak,
My life is such fun!

(3) In a tank right beside me,
Lives my friend, a frog.
We students just love him.
We all call him Og.
I can't understand words that Oggy will say,
But his Boing-Boing-Boing-Boing's
Just as clear as the day.
But his Boing-Boing-Boing-Boing's
Just as clear as the day.

(4) Raise-Your-Hand-Heidi
Is one of my friends.
If she shouts out the answers,
Mrs. Brisbane will cringe.
Stop-Giggling-Gail keeps laughing a lot.
And I-Heard-That-Kirk plays
The jokes that won't stop.
Yes, I-Heard-That-Kirk plays
The jokes that won't stop.

(5)
One day the fire drill bell rang an alarm.
The students grabbed Og and me, safe in their arms.
They carried me out to the playground that day,
But Mrs. Brisbane got scolded, I'm so sad to say.
Yes, Mrs. Brisbane got scolded, I'm so sad to say.
