"Little Koala" Theme Song Lyrics
Brand new day,
Time to play with Roo Bear and his friends,
Where summer never ends.
Koalas show you how to fly a plane,
Catch a wave, there's nothing we won't try.
Lots to do, fun starts here with you and me.
Look up there, way up high, koalas in balloons.
Laughter's on it's way to you.
Laura, Nick and Roo, Mimi and Floppy too, waiting here for you.
Brand new day, time to play, with Roo Bear and his friends
The fun and laughter never ends. Koalas lead the way
On a sunny day.. we all love to play."
