This was mentioned by Emily Rain on 22 Dec 99. My transcription from YouTube. Itís also on Spotify.


IíM PROUD TO BE A MOOSE
As recorded by Willie Nininger on ďAlmost HomeĒ (1993)

All the animals laugh at meó
(I wasnít kidding) Ask me what Iíd rather be.
I patiently explain:
I want to stay the same.

Iím proud to be a moose.
Thereís nothing else Iíd rather be.
Just take a look at me and you will see:
Iím as happy as an animal can be.

Iíd rather be a moose than a duck or a dog,
Eagle or seagull or a polliwog.
A bird can fly, but I donít mind.
Nobody else has got ears like mine.

Iím proud to be a moose.
A moose is what I would rather be.
Just take a look at me and you will see:
Iím as happy as an animal can be.

Never had a wish to be a fish.
Tried to be a cow; wouldnít know how,
And if you tried to make me be a goose,
It wouldnít be no use, Ďcause Iíd rather be Ö [audience:] a moose!

Right! Iím proud to be a moose.
A moose is what I want to be.
Just take a look at me and you will see:
Iím as happy as an animal can be.

Moose jam! Letís go! Whoo!
[Instrumental break]

Never had a care to be a hare,
Lion, tiger, penguin or a bear.
I have no whim to swim upstream like a salmon,
ĎCause canít you tell by now that Iím happy as I am aní

Iím proud to be a moose.
Yeah, moose is what I will always be.
The reason is, you see:
Iím as happy as an animal can be

Iím proudóso are you, Iím sureóto be a moose.
Iím proud to be a moose!
