“Welcome to the Desert”
(Sing to the tune of “Oh! Susanna”)
Oh, the days are hot; the nights are cold;
The weather it is dry.
With rocks and sand and lots of space.
Sometimes the wind blows by.
Come see the desert---it’s a pretty place to be!
Just keep your cool and watch your step,
For you may have company!
Look, there’s a giant cactus tree.
Saguaro is its name.
It stores water for dry times,
And you should do to the same.
When the sun goes down, the air turns cool.
More critters start to roam.
They’re hungry and they search for food.
The desert is their home.
The centipedes and scorpions
Are poisonous as can be.
So keep your distance---don’t you touch!
There’s plenty more to see!
