Have you heard of the Woggaldy-Woo

Who lives in a tree in the north of Peru?

      He hasn't been seen for a couple of years,

      If what they say is true.


He is short and fat in a woggaldy-way

And it looks as if he's there to stay.

      You can hear him singing songs at night,

      But never in the day.


The song he sings is called Woggaldy-Why.    

He’s a wonderful singer I can’t deny.    

     From high in the trees you hear him sing -

     If it's true and not a lie.


He swims in the river called Woggaldy-Wee        

And they say it's a lovely place to be.  

     The fish all love to swim there too  

     And it's very near the sea.


So whenever you go to visit Peru,

You must listen out, whatever you do,

    And perhaps you’ll hear the cheerful song

    Of  the mysterious Woggaldy-Woo.
