lyrics

Bugs and beetles and snakes and spiders and turtles and penguins and great big gorillas
I like the way you do your thing
Ants and emus and the creatures of the water and the birds of the sky and the lion and the otter
Oh yeah, I like the way you do your thing

Oh Slater, also called a doodle bug, also called a roly poly, chubby pig, a butcher boy, you’re a wood bug.
At the first sign of danger, you can roll into a ball
You lay eggs like other bugs do
but you keep them in a pouch like a kangaroo
Oh Slater, I like the way you do your thing,
I like the things you do oh oh
I like the way you do your thing

Cuttlefish, you’re a kind of mollusk, you live in the ocean, you eat crabs and you’re cousins with the octopus,
You’ve got 3 hearts and you can see in the dark
Red, green, blue or even stripes,
You change the colour of your skin faster than traffic lights
Oh Cuttlefish, I like the way you do your thing
I like the things you do, oh oh oh oh
I like the way you do your thing

Oh Penguin, your skin is camouflage, when you swim in the water your disguised from the top and from below,
You’ve got little wings but you can’t fly
On land you can waddle but you can’t run
So you slide on your tummy like a toboggan
Oh Penguin, I like the way you do your thing
I like the things you do, oh oh oh oh,
I like the way you do your thing

My name is Indigo, and that’s a colour, it’s not blue and it’s not violet but if you look you will find it in the middle,
It may be a colour but it’s also my name,
I’m a girl, I’m a human being now watch me while I do my thing

Oh I’m a human being, I don’t have a pouch, I don’t see in the dark and I don’t have wings
But what makes me so special is that I can chose who I will be
I use tools and equipment, I have dreams and ambitions,
I have opposable, thumbs, I can write compositions,
I think wonderful thought in my complex brain
And I can use and umbrella when it starts to rain

Oh, human, I like the way you do your thing
I like the thing you do, oh oh oh oh oh,
I like the way you do your thing

Bugs and beetles and snakes and spiders and turtles and penguins and great big gorillas
I like the way you do your thing
Ants and emus and the creatures of the water and the birds of the sky and the lion and the otter
Oh yeah, I like the way you do your thing
