Song of the Lizard Lovers by Jack Prelutsky
found in My Dog May Be a Genius (Greenwillow Press) p 126
I have left in the words of the refrain so you can see how it goes. The verses will fit in this music as well. This is great to do (along with Rat for Lunch) in October when you have students who cannot do Halloween things. These are gross and funny, but have nothing to do with Halloween. They can also be done any other time as well.
Mallets 1 - Glockenspiel
Mallets 2 - Soprano xylophone
Mallets 3 - Alto xylophone
Mallets 4 - Bass xylophone
We also add in sound effects for all the descriptive words in the poem. Maybe guiros for Lizard, and cabasa for Sizzled. Use vibraslaps, claves, woodblocks, maracas - all your small percussion. Let your students choose the sound effects.
