Goat Kids RockThe Goat Kids brought to you by Lotus Pond Media

Our thanks to Mrs. Ferry, 2nd grade teacher at Delaware Township Elementary School, for organizing our school visit to talk about our children's books and for her help introducing this "Goat Kids Rock" video. The day turned into a fantastic goat celebration with a goat petting zoo for the students and a visit from Mary Strauss, the woman who raised three of The Goat Kids as babies (Ella, Jack, and Sally) on her farm.

In preparation for our visit, Mrs. Ferry's 2nd grade class wrote an original song about The Goat Kids, with help from an extraordinary musician, Richard Jarboe. The song is presented here, with images of The Goat Kids cavorting around Lotus Pond, smashing heads, and jumping on their trampoline. The song was performed by the 2nd graders in Mrs. Ferry's, Mrs. Payne's, and Mrs. Roksvaag's classes. The musical composition and accompaniment was provided by Richard Jarboe, Larry Wohl, school board member, and Josh, a Delaware student on the bongos.

Goat Kids Rock

If a goat sings a note to her mother, the goat sings MAMAAAAAAAA!
If a goat sings a note to her daddy, the goat sings DADAAAAAAAA!
If a goat sings a note to her kid or kin,
Sounds like a baby, but you better not kiss her.
If a goat sings a note, the goat sings FA-LA-LA!


If you know a goat just show that goat you love him!
If you've got a goat just show that goat you care!


Charlie is the boss and Jack's his pygmy brother.
Ella is the sister and Yvonne is the two-legged mother.
Sally is the youngest and the last to eat.
These goats are a pleasure to meet.
They play just beyond--Lotus Pond!


With these four goats you've got to scratch their heads.
At least that's what Steve and Yvonne said!
They climb, they jump, they head butt all day long.
They dance on car tops to a pygmy song.
They eat wheat, and grain, and hay.
Play on the trampoline every day.
Just beyond--Lotus Pond!
