Up on the mountain there is a cabin, a place for us all, Alone on the lakeside, the stove's warm, there's always an open door, Food in the cupboards, firewood, stacked in the log store, An owl in the rafters keeping a close watch over it all. Big Sky Mountain, Oh! A place of hope, a place for all, Big Sky Mountain, Oh! A place of hope, a place for all, Up on the mountain each day is different, so much to do, Helping the creatures deal with their problems, working things through. Nan knows the mountain, she guides me, shows me the way, There's nowhere like it, better believe me, it's the best place to stay. Big Sky Mountain, Oh! A place of hope, a place for all, Big Sky Mountain, Oh! A place of hope, a place for all,

The Storm 01:44
The storm it swept on through, The trees bow down, the leaves fell on to you, The lake lifts into peaks, The fish hide deep, water fills the creeks. And I wonder where you are, And I wonder where you are. The cabin keeps me dry, I watch enthralled, as clouds scud through the sky, You race across the shore, Soaked and stained, but happy as before. And I wonder where you are, And I wonder where you are.

Canoe Canoe! 01:33
It is my heart, it is my soul, Rowing downstream, The breeze makes me whole. The rustling reeds, the buzzing flies, The water breaks, As the falcon cries. Canoe canoe! Canoe canoe! The lake is my home, the calm is my friend, Through seasons of change, Our life to defend. It is my heart, it is my soul, Rowing downstream, The breeze makes me whole. Canoe canoe! Canoe canoe!

Mr Hibberdee 02:01
Mr Hibberdee likes biscuits and cheese, Marshmallows and tasty cream teas, He travels all over the place, With a welcoming smile on his big fluffy face. He whistles and sings as he goes, Hibernates whenever it snows, He's a bear for all seasons it's true, Remembers his customers too. Mr Hibberdee's got a question for you, Do you like biscuits, one or a few? So here's a whole plate just for you, Be sure you remember to chew. Jammie Dodgers and Bourbons, sweet Custard Creams, Garibaldi, Digestives and more, Chocolate Chip Cookies, Hobnobs for sure, Pink Wafers and Marshmallow 'Smores! Mr Hibberdee likes biscuits and cheese, Marshmallows and tasty cream teas, He travels all over the place, With a welcoming smile on his face.

My name is Albert the Moose, Always on the loose, I love those apples, The best, Better than all the rest and... Do you know what what else? I like those hoomans, As well, Rosa and Nan are swell, I like their cabin, It's warm, it cheers me when I'm forlorn and... Do you know what else? I like those hoomans Much more, When they have apples that I adore... So pick some apples for tea, Apples for you and me and... Do you know what else?

Do beavers eat fish? Do bears like honey? Do elephants never forget? Do sharks glow at night? Do wasps make chutney? Do sloths grow moths on their backs? Animals are weird thats for sure, But as strange as it seems, We're the strangest of all! Do birds fly low when it looks like rain? Does an octopus have three hearts? Does a binturong smell of freshly popped popcorn, Are bats really blind as a bat? Animals are weird thats for sure, But as strange as it seems, We're the strangest of all!

Get the stove lit, put the kettle on, Stir the beans in, 'til the water's gone, Eat up, fill yer boots, make you big and strong. Get the stove lit, sunset won't be long. Pull the boat in, tie it to the shore, Pick the tools up, leave them by the door, Sweep up, clear the floor like every day before, And tomorrow, we can go explore!

Tom's Seaplane flies away, And leaves me behind. My backpack is all that I own, I don't seem to mind. Nan's cabin, home to me now, The creatures my friends. The mountain needs our help, Let's make amends.
