Cattail Diner
Nature Song Lyrics and Sound Clip
Foster Brown


This song is available on Foster Brown's Walkin, Wadin' & Wanderin'

Let’s go down to the cattail diner
Where the food is fresh and couldn’t be finer.
Selections are good, now don’t you know,
to the Cattail Diner, away we ago.

As I was walkin’ to the wetland wonder
I saw some cattails over yonder.
A blackbird callin’ Oo-ka-lee,
inviting me to have a seat.

I took my seat on a floating log,
near a painted turtle and an old bullfrog.
A whirligig danced across the lake,
to clean my table for my dinner date.

Let’s go down to the cattail diner
Where the food is fresh and couldn’t be finer.
Selections are good, now don’t you know,
to the Cattail Diner, away we ago.

A damselfly, she flew right over.
She said with a smile, “Can I take your order?”
“I don’t know, what ya got today.”
“We got cattail biscuits and carp soufflé’.”

“I’m not sure, I think I’ll try something new,
How about watercress salad and tadpole stew.”
“And an order of frog legs on the side.”
Then the bullfrogs’s eyes, they open wide.

Let’s go down to the cattail diner
Where the food is fresh and couldn’t be finer.
Selections are good, now don’t you know,
to the Cattail Diner, away we ago.

A diving beetle took my order down,
to a fat crayfish who was cookin’ around.
He was choppin’, stirrin’, and flippin’ the meals.
Cookin’ up a winner, a real hot deal.

When the meal was done they brought it right up,
garnished so nice with a buttercup.
They served the food on a lily pad
with spearmint tea, the best I’ve had.

A great blue heron, a water snake, a muskrat and a mallard drake,
All were eaten their favorite dish,
the smile on their face told me it was delish!

Let’s go down to the cattail diner
Where the food is fresh and couldn’t be finer.
Selections are good, now don’t you know,
to the Cattail Diner, away we ago.
