a Young Lady of Niger,
as she rode on a tiger.
returned from the ride with the lady inside
smile on the face of the tiger.
a Young Lady whose nose
Was so long
that it reached to her toes,
So she hired an Old Lady, whose conduct was
that wonderful nose
There once was a man from Harare,
Who bought a brand new Ferrari.
Now the buck and the gnu
And the elephant too
Hide away when he goes on safari.
There was an Old Man with a beard,
Who said, "It is just as I feared! —
Two Owls and a Hen,
Four Larks and a Wren,
Have all built their nests in my beard!"
There was a Young Lady whose chin
Resembled the point of a pin;
So she had it made sharp,
And purchased a harp,And played several tunes with her chin.
