Giant anteaters rarely make it into song, but our furry long-nosed
friends are the subject of a sweet new tune from children's
singer-songwriter Alison Faith Levy. The number, "Baby Anteater," is one of 11 tracks on her 2012 release, World of Wonder.
Other songs on the album include "Eye of the Tornado" and "I had a
Rooster," but there's no secret as to which is tops among the lot... It
goes:
"Riding around on your mama’s back
She’s running around and you just sleep right though
Clutched on tight, you’re such a funny sight!"
A California native, Levy is a well-heeled public performer who also
teaches "Tot Rock Classes" in the Bay Area. Giant anteaters, she tells
me, are "a big fave with my little kid fans...they put their arms out
like snouts and go around on the floor when I play, pretending to pick
up ants!" That sounds like the anteater boogie to me!
