Joyful, humorous lyrics praise animals in this song for the Feast of St. Francis. All animals from fish to bees to birds and pets are mentioned in the many verses. The catchy melody is reminiscent of a merry-go-round.


The world is filled with creatures, you can see them all around,
With some that fly up to the sky or crawl upon the ground.
They swim the seas, they hide in holes or use a tree to nest,
But every creature I have seen is one I like the best.
