A Walk on the Wild Side

Oh friendly Mr Crocodile

with such a charming tooth-filled smile

You swim around with grace and style

Why did you bite my leg?

Oh pretty little Lion cub

you let me give your chest a rub

Your parents came to take a look

Why did they chew my head?

Oh lovely Mrs Polar Bear

a lovely white fur coat you wear

You said 'Come stroke me if you dare'

and now I've got no hands

Oh noble Vulture, old and wise

you watch me with your tender eyes

Your date of birth I memorised

yet still you eat my glands

Oh clean, majestic Killer Whale

We shared a meal and glass of ale

You said 'come sit upon my tail'

then dragged me to the deep

Oh cruel Coyote, on your own

you never write, you never phone

Yet feel quite free to lick my bones

I think I'll go to sleep…
