An ant, he lives with lots of friends
They help each other out,
Some build the house, some collect food
And they never, never shout !
I'm a little bunny rabbit
With a very twitchy nose
I've got a fluffy tail
And I don't wear any clothes.
Chinchilla's a bundle of fur
He comes from South A-meri-ca
High in the Andes mountains lives he
It's so cold there, I'm glad it's not me !
Wild dog of Australia
"Canis Dingo" is his name
How ever much you like him
You'll never get him tame
Elephant is HUGE
His skin is grey and tough
His trunk is like an arm
Do you think it's long enough ?
Froggy is hopping
Right across the water
He jumps from stone to lilypad
Do you really think he oughta ?
Little fishy in the pond
Swimming with all his might
Swam headlong into a pile of weeds
'Cos he forgot to turn right.
A giraffe has a very long neck
His legs are pretty long too,
I wonder how he'd manage to sneeze
If he caught a dose of the 'flu'
Hippo is big, hippo is strong
Don't ever tell her she's in the wrong,
She's graceful in water and in mud she bathes
No one dares tell her off if she misbehaves.
Hippo's the one who writes poetry
But is it a she or is it a he ?
Another hippo would know by the tail
But I'll tell you now………..I'm not a male !
Hippo baby playing in the mud
As happy as can be,
His mum said "Get washed up now "
"It's almost time for tea"
You could never call him handsome
Or good-looking, in our eyes,
But to a lady iguana
He's the best thing since squashed flies.
A leopard has got a lot of spots
Fine teeth and mighty sharp claws,
It would be most unwise to get in his way
If I were you then, I'd stay indoors.
Monkey swinging high in the trees
Keeps on banging both his knees
Doesn't know when to stop
But he'll have to when he reaches the top.
An octopus named Oscar
Was swimming in the sea
He swam too near a jagged rock
And badly scraped his knee, knee, knee………..
Robin redbreast in the tree
Loves to sweetly sing
He also likes dad's gardening tools
And sits on them in Spring.
Little robin redbreast
Perched upon dad's spade
Only hangs around
To see the worms displayed.
Squirrel's tail is long and bushy
He has tiny hands and feet
He steals the food left for the birds
And buries it, to later eat.
SNAIL & MOUSE
I've got a little snail and I've got a little mouse,
The mouse has got a tail and the snail has got a house,
If the mouse had the house and the snail had the tail,
The tail of the mouse wouldn't fit inside the snail.
Tommy the tortoise is very slow
His speed is somewhere twixt stop and go
He carries his home everywhere on his back
When it rains he's got a built-in mac.
