words and music by Kristin Lems c 1989 Kleine Ding Music (BMI)




We all knows the noises that animals make

We all know the sounds of machines

But this is a song that is just for the sake

Of such creatures as rabbits and goldfish and snakes

That are not heard, but quite often seen


What does a fish say?  How bout a turtle?

What kind of noise can you hear from a star?

There you are!


Many things are important that don't make a noise

Such as a baby that's sleeping

Even an oyster's annoyed by a noise

And what sound does ivy make creeping?


What noise does snow make?

How bout a flower?

What sort of sound will come out of a photograph?

Not a laugh!


Many things are noisy and silent in turns

Such as an egg that's not breaking

Or, for example, a match before it burns

Or a milkshake that's no longer shaking


We all know the noises that instruments make

The sounds of TV show violence

But take a little minute

To hear the space that's in it

And find some peace of mind…in silence
