Songs with Animal Names in the Title

Here's a topic with a bit of a biological slant. I'm wondering how many songs have different members of the Animal Kingdom mentioned in the title (I'm excluding Homo sapiens here-- not to discriminate but just for the sake of focus 🤓). I happened to meet an octopus during a snorkel a few years ago & have been obsessed with them ever since ... so  I'll start this off with my favorite animal 🐙:

 

Octopus's Garden -- The Beatles

 

 

 PS ... This is not a strict rule but I think it would be nice if we just have one song title per post so each animal gets its own honorable mention. ❤

Good one. Forgot all about that one. I used to have that on an album.

Wondering Where the Lions Are -- Bruce Cockburn

 

Great song from 1979 by the Canadian singer-songwriter Bruce Cockburn. Awesome album too (Dancing in the Dragon's Jaws). If you've never heard it, I'd highly recommend checking it out here:
