Lyrics

Sometimes I'm proud and I feel like crowing
Sometimes I monkey around
I can strut like a peacock with my feathers showing
When I'm quiet as a mouse, I don't make a sound

I can pounce like a panther or be strong as an ox
Be stubborn as a mule or smart like a fox
I can swim like a dolphin or stand like a flamingo
Soar like a falcon or run like a dingo

So many animals inside of me
So many animals, set them free
To run through the jungle, fly through the air
Swim in the ocean, go anywhere.

So many animals inside of me
So many animals, set them free
To run through the jungle, fly through the air
Swim in the ocean, go anywhere.

So many animals, set them free.
So many animals, set them free.

Sometimes I'm mad and I feel like snapping
Sometimes I horse around
I can scurry like a chick with both wings flapping
But when I play possum, I cannot be found

I can leap like a frog or chomp like a croc
I can oink like a pig or watch like a hawk
I can waddle like a duck or hang like a bat
Hop like a roo or pounce like a cat

So many animals inside of me
So many animals, set them free
To run through the jungle, fly through the air
Swim in the ocean, go anywhere.

So many animals inside of me
So many animals, set them free
To run through the jungle, fly through the air
Swim in the ocean, go anywhere.

So many animals, set them free.
So many animals, set them free.
So many animals, set them free.
So many animals, set them free.

British Lyrics

Sometimes I'm proud and I feel like crowing
Sometimes I monkey around
I can strut like a peacock with my feathers showing
When I'm quiet as a mouse, I don't make a sound

I can pounce like a panther or be strong as an ox
Be stubborn as a mule or smart like a fox
I can swim like a dolphin or stand like a flamingo
Soar like an eagle or leap like a squirrel

So many animals inside of me
So many animals, set them free
To run through the jungle, fly through the air
Swim in the ocean, go anywhere.

So many animals inside of me
So many animals, set them free
To run through the jungle, fly through the air
Swim in the ocean, go anywhere.

So many animals, set them free.
So many animals, set them free.

Sometimes I'm mad and I feel like snapping
Sometimes I horse around
I can scurry like a chick with both wings flapping
And when I'm a snake I slither around

I can jump like a frog or moo like a cow
I can oink like a pig or watch like an owl
I can waddle like a duck or hang like a bat
Dig like a mole or pounce like a cat

So many animals inside of me
So many animals, set them free
To run through the jungle, fly through the air
Swim in the ocean, go anywhere

So many animals inside of me
So many animals, set them free
To run through the jungle, fly through the air
Swim in the ocean, go anywhere

So many animals, set them free.
So many animals, set them free.
So many animals, set them free.
So many animals, set them free.

Spanish Lyrics

Estamos felices siendo animales
Estoy orgulloso de ser.
Como un pavo real moveré mis plumas,
Como un ratón silencioso seré.

Hago como pantera,
Soy fuerte como un león,
Terco como mula,
Un astuto tiburón,
Como delfín ir nadando,
Y ser como flamenco
Planear como halcón o correr como un dingo.

Hay animales dentro de mí
Déjenlos libres, libres al fin
Correr por la selva, volar por ahí
Nadando en el mar yo soy muy feliz.

Hay animales dentro de mí
Déjenlos libres, libres al fin
Correr por la selva, volar por ahí
Nadando en el mar yo soy muy feliz.

Hay animales, dentro de mí
Déjenlos libres, libres al fin
Y me dan ganas ir pateando
Como un caballo yo haré.
Puedo ser como gallina y agitar mis alas
Y si me escondo no me encontrarán.

Como rana saltar,
O cocodrilo mascar,
Un cerdo yo haré,
Como halcón voy a mirar,
Como pato caminar,
Una jirafa tu serás,
Como un canguro y gato tu harás.

Hay animales dentro de mí
Déjenlos libres, libres al fin
Correr por la selva, volar por ahí
Nadando en el mar yo soy muy feliz.

Hay animales dentro de mí
Déjenlos libres, libres al fin
Correr por la selva, volar por ahí
Nadando en el mar yo soy muy feliz.

Hay animales, dentro de mí
Déjenlos libres, libres al fin
Hay animales, dentro de mí
Déjenlos libres, libres al fin.

Portuguese Lyrics

Eu sei que posso ser passarinho
E eu um macaco feliz.
Um pavão posso ser quero me exibir,
Sou rato esperto ninguém vai me ouvir.

Tenho a gata pantera,
E a força do touro,
Sou teimosa igual mula,
E sagaz como um cão,
Nado como um golfinho,
Eu imito um flamingo
E eu sei que posso correr como um "dingo".

Todos os bichos sei que posso ser
Quero ser bicho livre pra correr
Correr pela selva e livre voar
Nadar no oceano e o mundo explorar.

Todos os bichos sei que posso ser
Quero ser bicho livre pra correr
Correr pela selva e livre voar
Nadar no oceano e o mundo explorar.

Quero ser bicho (pra correr)
Quero ser bicho (pra correr)
Eu sei que posso seguir trotando
Como um cavalo veloz.
E bater minhas asas como galinha
Brincar de tatu pra ninguém me encontra.

Sapos sabem pular
Jacaré abocanhar
Como porco sei grunir
Como falcão enxergar
Como pato sei andar
Como morcego ficar
Canguru vai pular e o gato arranhar!

Todos os bichos sei que posso ser
Quero ser bicho livre pra correr
Correr pela selva e livre voar
Nadar no oceano e o mundo explorar.

Todos os bichos sei que posso ser
Quero ser bicho livre pra correr
Correr pela selva e livre voar
Nadar no oceano e o mundo explorar.

Quero ser livre (pra correr)
Quero ser livre (pra correr)
Quero ser livre (pra correr)
Quero ser livre (pra correr)!

Trivia

  • In 2004, when Hi-5 still wasn't shown in Brazil and Latin America yet, this song won a Portuguese version performed by Xuxa Meneghel, just in the cut version.
  • Kellie wore her shirt in the Game With Words filler song.
