LYRICS

BEAVER: Permits? I built the dam in a stream. The dam made this pond. Then I built this hut in the pond. I built everything!
RABBIT: Seems like a lot of extra work to me.
BEAVER: Call it instinct.
BEAVER (cont'd):

    BEAVER, BEAVER DAM!
PURPLE MARTIN, RABBIT & S’MANDER:
    BEAVER, BEAVER DAM!
BEAVER:
    LOGS AND BRANCHES,
    MUD AND STONE
PURPLE MARTIN, RABBIT & S’MANDER:
    BEAVER, BEAVER DAM!
BEAVER:
    SURE IT'S HUMBLE,
    BUT IT'S HOME.
PURPLE MARTIN, RABBIT & S’MANDER:
    BEAVER, BEAVER DAM!
BEAVER:
    UPSTREAM FROM THE DAM
    IS WHERE THE BEAVER GOES TO HANG
    BEAVER, BEAVER HUT!
PURPLE MARTIN, RABBIT & S’MANDER:
    BEAVER, BEAVER HUT!
BEAVER:
    STICKS AND MOSS,
    GRASS AND MUD.
PURPLE MARTIN, RABBIT & S’MANDER:
    BEAVER, BEAVER HUT!
BEAVER:
    BLANKETS OF BARK,
    GRASS, AND WOOD
PURPLE MARTIN, RABBIT & S’MANDER:
    BEAVER, BEAVER HUT!
BEAVER:
    COME ON! WE GOT A FRONT DOOR
PURPLE MARTIN, RABBIT & S’MANDER:
    FRONT DOOR!
BEAVER:
    WE GOT A BACK DOOR
PURPLE MARTIN, RABBIT & S’MANDER:
    BACK DOOR!
BEAVER:
    WE GOT AN AIR VENT.
PURPLE MARTIN, RABBIT & S’MANDER:
    AIR VENT!
BEAVER:
    WE GOT A DAM DOWNSTREAM
PURPLE MARTIN, RABBIT & S’MANDER
    DAM DOWNSTREAM!
BEAVER:
    IT'S A LODGE SUPREME
PURPLE MARTIN, RABBIT & S’MANDER:
    IT’S A LODGE SUPREME!
BEAVER:
    IT'S A LODGE SUPREME!
PURPLE MARTIN, RABBIT & S’MANDER:
    IT’S A LODGE SUPREME!
BEAVER:
    ALL RIGHT!
    THE BEAVER SLOSHES
    WHERE HIS LODGE IS
    A LITTLE GARAGE
    MADE OF EARTHEN COLLAGE.
    IT'S SO MUDDY IN THERE
    THAT YOU'D NEED GALOSHES!
PURPLE MARTIN (ad lib.): Galoshes?
SALAMANDER (ad lib.): What? But we’re animals.
RABBIT (ad lib.): We don’t need those. Don’t be silly!
BEAVER (ad lib.): I just thought you might not want to get your paws all muddy.
BEAVER (cont'd):
    CAUSE IT'S A BEAVER, BEAVER HUT!
PURPLE MARTIN, RABBIT & S’MANDER:
    BEAVER, BEAVER HUT!
BEAVER:
    STICKS AND MOSS,
    GRASS AND MUD.
PURPLE MARTIN, RABBIT & S’MANDER:
    BEAVER, BEAVER HUT!
BEAVER:
    BLANKETS OF BARK,
    GRASS, AND WOOD.
PURPLE MARTIN, RABBIT & S’MANDER:
    BEAVER, BEAVER HUT!
BEAVER:
    AND DOWNSTREAM!
PURPLE MARTIN, RABBIT & S’MANDER:
    BEAVER, BEAVER DAM!
BEAVER:
    AND UPSTREAM!
PURPLE MARTIN, RABBIT & S’MANDER:
    BEAVER, BEAVER DAM!
BEAVER:
    AND DOWNSTREAM!
PURPLE MARTIN, RABBIT & S’MANDER:
    BEAVER, BEAVER DAM!
BEAVER:
    AND UPSTREAM!
PURPLE MARTIN, RABBIT & S’MANDER:
    BEAVER, BEAVER DAM!
ALL:
    BEA-
    VER
    DAM,
