The Backyardigans Fever

I really don't know why but my 7 year old got hooked with The Backyardigans once again. Her recent favorite is "Into the Deep" which has the Bollywood music style. It's amusing to see her dance and sing the song "Our Garden" with Tasha and Uniqua who are mermaids in the episode. It's not an easy song to sing (according to her daddy) but it's fun for her.

To help her out I searched for the lyrics of the song and for those who are also interested here it is:

Our Garden (by Tasha and Uniqua)

Uniqua: If you’re a fish that’s kinda fishy, or a thief out there in the reef
It’s time to turn and swim the other way!
Tasha: If you’re a coral that’s immoral, or a shark out in the dark
Goodbye and have a pleasant day!
Uniqua: To all you sketchy mollusks and you interloping clams
Tasha: You underhanded turtles with your underwater scams
Uniqua: To all you thieving catfish and dodgy lobsters, too
Tasha: Our garden’s not for you!
Uniqua: Hey, hey...
Tasha: We shout...
Uniqua: Go away...
Tasha: Keep out...
Uniqua: Excuse me, beg your pardon!
Tasha: Whoa, whoa...
Uniqua: We yell...
Tasha: Please go...
Uniqua: Farewell...
Both: It’s time to leave our garden!
Tasha: If you’re a bass that likes to trespass, or an eel that wants to steal
You’ve come to the wrong place!
Uniqua: If you’re a salmon who is scammin’, or a perch who likes to lurch
Then do an about-face!
Tasha: To all you shady tuna and misbehaving groupers
Uniqua: You murky deep sea robbers and underwater snoopers
Tasha: To all you shifty mackerel and creepy clownfish, too
Both: Our garden’s not for you!
Uniqua: Hey, hey...
Tasha: We shout...
Uniqua: Go away...
Tasha: Keep out...
Uniqua: Excuse me, beg your pardon!
Tasha: Whoa, whoa...
Uniqua: We yell...
Tasha: Please go...
Uniqua: Farewell...
Both: It’s time to leave our garden! Yes, it’s time to leave our garden!

I can imagine the joy as your daughter sang and danced. What is more precious than a happy family.
