Lyrics

Timmy and Dora

Written By: Jonathan Smith

Timmy was a very timid elephant
He didn’t like to make a lot of noise
When his mother said, “Go out and play instead”
He’d always shake his head and say, I’d rather go to bed

He liked to wrap his quilt around him tightly
And snuggle down and listen to the wind
As it moved amongst the bushes and the grasses and the rushes
When it blows strong it whooshes, and when it’s soft it shushes

So hush, hush, hush little elephant
There’s nothing wrong with liking quiet things
Hush, hush, hush, little elephant
And listen to the songs the whole world sings

Dora was a very noisy dormouse
She liked to stomp and shout and clap and call
When her mother said, Dora will you go to bed
She’d always shake her head and say, I’d rather play instead

She liked to make believe that she was airborne
And could fly above the mountains and the trees
Or that she was a giant girl, could wander over half the world
Sending people in a whirl, when they saw the huge mouse girl

So stomp stomp stomp, little dormouse
Just because you’re small don’t mean a thing
Stomp stomp stomp, little dormouse
And join in with the songs the whole world sings

Dora met with Timmy in a play park
She stomped up to him, shouted ‘What’s your name’
He whispered that “its Timmy”, she said come on Timmy, gimme
Just a hand to dance the shimmy, it’s more fun if I’ve a twinny

Timmy danced a loud dance round a fir tree
And he laughed at how his head began to spin
And when they’d had enough, of dancing round and stuff,
They sat quiet on a tuft, because they knew enough’s enough

So stomp stomp stomp, little dormouse
Just because you’re small don’t mean a thing
Stomp stomp stomp, little dormouse
And join in with the songs the whole world sings

So hush, hush, hush little elephant
There’s nothing wrong with liking quiet things
Hush, hush, hush, little elephant
And listen to the songs the whole world sings
