English.png English text

A snake is a lizard without any legs.
And a bat is a bird with no beak.
A camel’s a llama
(but very much calmer),
While a whale is a fish with physique.

(Physique is a word that I like to slip in
Whenever the chat starts to bore me.
My friends start to giggle,
Their hips start to wiggle,
And I know now that they won’t ignore me.)

A cow is a horse which has udders below.
And a pig’s like a dog with a snout.
A penguin’s a bird
That is just too absurd,
While a peacock’s an absolute knockout.

You can tell that they teach me a lot at my school.
Miss Pringle’s a very good teacher.
She’s ever so wise,
And her beautiful eyes
Make you just want to run up and squeeze her!
