We’re Going on a Picnic

Mommy’s in the kitchen putting food in a great big box.
Hurry, get dressed now, put on your shoes and socks!
Daddy’s got a fishing rod, a baseball bat and a glove—
Well, you know what that means—we’re gonna do something we love:

We’re going on a picnic,
We’re going way out of town.
We’re going on a picnic
Until the sun goes down.
We’re gonna have hot dogs, popcorn, potato chips
Out by a lake—you can take a dip.
But don’t get lost in the woods like you did last year.
Stay close enough so you can hear
Your mommy and daddy calling you!

We’re out on the road now, driving for a real long time.
Wow, look at those mountains, great big hills to climb!
There’s trees so tall that they tickle the man in the moon!
We’re on a dirt road now; you know we’re gonna be there soon.

We’re going on a picnic,
We’re going way out of town.
We’re going on a picnic
Until the sun goes down.
We’re gonna have hot dogs, popcorn, potato chips
Out by a lake—you can take a dip.
But don’t get lost in the woods like you did last year.
Stay close enough so you can hear
Your mommy and daddy calling you!

Now we’re playing baseball—run for the pop-up fly!
Daddy’s so strong he hit the ball right out of the sky!
Billy caught a frog and he wants to bring him home,
But Mommy said, “You leave that frog alone!—
What’ll you feed him?”

We’re going on a picnic,
We’re going way out of town.
We’re going on a picnic
Until the sun goes down.
We’re gonna have hot dogs, popcorn, potato chips
Out by a lake—you can take a dip.
But don’t get lost in the woods like you did last year.
Stay close enough so you can hear
Your mommy and daddy calling you!

This is so much fun that I’m about ready to drop!
Daddy took us all on a walk to a mountaintop.
When we got back, we ate all the food we had.
Next week, we’ve got a big surprise for Mom and Dad—guess what!

We’re going on a picnic,
We’re going way out of town.
We’re going on a picnic
Until the sun goes down.
We’re gonna have hot dogs, popcorn, potato chips
Out by a lake—you can take a dip.
But don’t get lost in the woods like you did last year.
Stay close enough so you can hear
Your mommy and daddy calling you!

I’m right here, Ma—next to this bear!

We’re going a picnic,
We’re going way out of town.
We’re going on a picnic
Until the sun goes down!
