Tengo mucha suerte
Soy un hombre optimista
Y también soy inteligente

Escucho música cada día
Me gusta escuchar
También canto mucho
Para relajar

¿Qué escuchas tú? Yo digo
En tu tiempo libre
¿Te gusta escuchar también?
¿Te gusta la dulcedumbre?

Mis padres bailan cada noche
En la discoteca
Mi hermano le gusta leer libros
En la biblioteca

Mi gato solo dice Meeow
No habla y no piensa
Pero mi secreto importante
Es que mi perro canta!

Canta por la mañana
Canta por la noche
Canta una canción
Sobre un fantoche.

El fantoche baila
Le gusta bailar
Canta una canción
Le gusta cantar
