The Ugly Duckling (丑小鸭)

This is one of the more adorable Chinese songs out there. All of the lines strongly suggest various duck-like movements, so be sure to get active and enjoy yourself!


呱呱呱,呱呱呱
丑小鸭,丑小鸭
腿儿 短短,
脚掌 大,
长长 脖子,
扁 嘴巴,
走起路 来 摇摇摇,
爱到 河边 去玩耍,
喉咙 虽小
声音 大,
可是 只会 呱呱呱

Guā guā guāguā guā guā
chǒuxiǎoyā, chǒuxiǎoyā
tuǐ er duǎn duǎn,
jiǎozhǎng dà,
chángcháng bózi,
biǎn zuǐba,

zǒu qǐ lù lái yáo yáo yáo,
ài dào hébiān qù wánshuǎ,

English translation:
Quack quack quack, quack quack quack,
Ugly duckling, ugly duckling,
Short legs,
big feet,
Long neck
and flat mouth!

When it walks, it wobbles,
It loves to go to the riverside to play,
Though its throat is small,
its noise is big!
..But it can only quack quack quack.

Flap and quack like a duck

Tap legs,
stomp feet,
Hold up hand like a duck bill and quack it


Wobble side to side


Jump, spread arms on “大"!
Flap and quack like a duck
