Listen Up! Lyrics

I’m gonna need your help with this song!
I want you to listen for the sound word and repeat it back!
Are you ready? Here we go!

I hear the wind whoosh through the trees. Whoosh!
The leaves crunch under my feet. Crunch!
The rocks kerplunk into the lake. Kerplunk!
And I feel drip drops on my face! Drip drop.

Listen up to the sounds all around you.
Listen up, can you use your ears?
Listen up to the sounds all around you.
Listen up, tell me what you hear!

That was great!
This time you’re gonna listen for the sound word and repeat it back TWICE.

The car vrooms down the street. Vroom vroom.
Its horn goes beep. Beep beep!
It screeches to a stop. Screech screech.
And the tire goes POP! Pop pop! Uh-oh!

Listen up to the sounds all around you.
Listen up, can you use your ears?
Listen up to the sounds all around you.
Listen up, tell me what you hear!

This last time you’re gonna listen for the sound word and repeat it THREE TIMES.
Don’t forget to be silly!

I chomp on my food. Chomp chomp chomp.
I gulp down my drink. Gulp gulp gulp.
And now I have the hiccups. Hiccup hiccup hiccup.
Oh no, I’m gonna sneeze! Achoo!

Listen up to the sounds all around you.
Listen up, can you use your ears?
Listen up to the sounds all around you.
Listen up, tell me what you hear!
Achoo!
