Big Bunny's Spring Fling

Big Bunny's Spring Fling

Performed this Easter weekend
At the LA Zoo
It’s called Big Bunny Spring Fling
And it’s 10 shows that we do

I had my good friend Dennis
He joined me on the bass
The kids can meet Big Bunny
And get a painted face

Sang Friday, Saturday and Sunday

Mario The Famous Goose at The LA Zoo

Mario The Famous Goose at The LA Zoo


For 50,000 ears
We’ve done this celebration
For 27 years

We met some happy creatures
Like Mario The Goose
And the alligator Reggie
Just last year he got loose

A Pink Flamingo

Zebras in a pair

Elephants at The Los Angeles Zoo

We saw the pink flamingos
And Zebras in a pair
Elephants and rhinos
The Meer cats love to stare

Watched the bears and tigers
The gorilla and his mate
We saw the hippopotamus
And watched him while he ate

The seals were so happy
Swimming in their pool
Giraffes were munching on some leaves
They really like to drool

The people were so happy
While the children sing and laugh
There was lots of dancing
And I learned to speak giraffe

The Guardian of Seoul

The Guardian of Seoul


I am back from South Korea
And the great big city of Seoul
Sang at the American School
Some blues and rock and roll

I flew across Siberia
And landed at Incheon
The money that you earn and spend
Is called Korean Won

The people were so friendly
They greet you with a smile
Everyone was dressed so nice
They wore the latest style

Inside the Gyeongbokgung Palace

Inside the Gyeongbokgung Palace


I love Korean language
An-yong-ha-se-yo means hi!
Kam-sa-ha-ni-da, thank you
An-nyong-hi-ga-se-yo, bye!

The food was very tasty
They even like Kim-chee
That’s fermented cabbage
And it’s alright with me

Changing of the guard

Changing of the guard

I visited a Palace
That’s called Gyeongbokgung
We saw the changing of the guard
And had a lot of fun

So a special thanks to Katie
To Amy and Diane
Karen, Michael and Jenny
My new friends in that land

The last night we had pizza
At a restaurant named Crow’s Nest
I really love Korea
My time one of the best!

Another trip to Germany
A favorite place to visit
They say the folks don’t smile much
But that’s not true now is it?

They’re actually quite caring
And willing to assist
But if you’re bad or make a mess

Cow on the back of a German truck

They’ll slap you on the wrist

I love the signs that make you laugh
Because they’re kinda silly
I love to walk in Heidelberg
It’s beautiful and hilly

I often go to Ramstein
And Mannheim and Baumholder
I hope to go for years to come
Of course while getting older

Philosopher's walk in Heidelberg, Germany


I like the taste of gulashsuppe
And now and then some schnitzel
Brotchen is the word for bread
And bretzel just means pretzel

The German word for vegetables
Is the funny word gemuse
Gemooose is what Deutsche cows eat
That’s one joke you can use a

I did some shows in Schweinfurt
In German that means pigtown
It really is a lovely place
And not a very bigtown

The music is so classical
Like Bach who played the organ
And Beethoven at morning time
That makes a guten morgen

My friend's daughter, Carla, with Grimm' fairytale poster in Heidelberg


So all and all the Deutsche are fine
And the opposite of awful
And if you like potato salad
It’s salat mit kartoffel

Pony Express Monument in Julesburg, Colorado

Julesburg, Colorado
Is a small town way out west
In fact in 1861
They had The Pony Express

I also sang in Sterling
And a prairie town named Wray
Both Kansas and Nebraska
Are not that far away

One Room Schoolhouse outside of Wray, Colorado


In the late 1850’s
On the Julesburg Street called Main
There was a famous visitor
A writer named Mark Twain

Harry and Gary inside Old One Room Schoolhouse


An awful lot of history
In the east part of the State
I saw a one-room schoolhouse
With blackboards made of slate

I surely loved the cornfields
Soon to feel the plows
Some mighty friendly people
And the grazing herds of cows

I slept in a home where the buffalo roam
And the deer and the antelope play
With Gary and Gayle my real good friends
Is where I got to stay

I love the South Platte River
Where the vista never ends
I love the open spaces
But most of all my friends

Old Movie Theater in Julesburg, Colorado


So here’s to Beecher Island
A famous battleground
To Eastern Colorado
Where history does abound

Fair Okinawa
Is a lovely spiritual land
In the Ryuku Islands
Off the mainland of Japan

The people of Okinawa
All speak Japanese
Where Arigato stands for thank you
And dozo that means please

They eat sushi and sashimi
With hot wasabi spice
A bowl of soba noodles
And every meal has rice

I traveled round the Island
To almost everyplace
The capital of Naha
And Kadena Air Force Base

The Marine Base at Camp Courtney
And to Camp Foster too
To Zuckeran and Bechtel
Made more friends than a few

They have a giant Buddha
The biggest one on Earth
They made it out of lacquer
It’s value beyond worth

The people of Okinawa
Are courteous and kind
Among the nicest friends
You’ll ever hope to find

Did concerts at Kadena
Where fun was had by all
They have a squid and whale
That’s painted on the fall

So I say sayonara
Down Okinawa way
I hope I get to come back soon
I sure enjoyed the stay

My recent tour of Belgium was the opposite of awful
Sure enjoyed the Belgian Chocolate
And of course the Belgian waffle

The people dressed so splendidly
I liked them very much
Half of them were speaking French
The other half spoke Dutch

The place I did my many shows
Is a vital NATO Base
With families from all over Europe
They came from every place

Some of them from Germany
From Belgium and from Spain
From Norway and from Italy
And Some from the Ukraine

Brass monkey in the town square in Mons, Belgium

Some of them from Canada
From Turkey and from Greece
Many from America
All countries there for peace

The Base is near the town of Mons
With Brussels very close
SHAPE is what the place is called
That acronym they chose

Shape Elementary


The S of it is for Supreme
The H is for Headquarters
The A is for the Allied troops
That guard so many borders

The P of it stands for Powers
The E for Europe ready
All together they make SHAPE
Effected by spaghetti

I made so many brand new friends
Like Kristy, Art and Miles
Meadow, Morgan, Megan, Max
The memory brings me smiles

So here’s to all my Belgian friends
From Bruges to Mons to Brussels
And all the things we ate and drank
Especially the mussels

Thank-you Merci

Sure was cold in Idaho Falls
Where the Snake River flows and the Chukar bird calls
February concerts when the weather cools
And all of them sponsored by the Montessori schools

Dan Crow performing, Idaho Falls, Idaho


If you like your French Fries served up curled
I did a show in Blackfoot, potato capital of the world
Even got a T-shirt, an Idaho Stater
With a clever picture that read “Darth Tater”

Bike parking at Idaho Falls Montessori School


Found a famous restaurant in Idaho
Had a stack of pancakes made from sourdough
Made some good friends like Linda and Randy
Had a lot of laughs and the audience was dandy

10° and colder in the cold and snow
It’s that way every winter in the State of Idaho
But the people were so friendly and also very warm
Idaho Falls is just about my favorite place to perform
