The Thunder From Down Under
I'm telling you a story
you may not think is true,
a rhyme about Rocky
the boxing kangaroo.
He comes from the land down under,
he trains hard every day.
He keeps in shape - he's strong and fit,
for fights that comes his way.
Once he fought in England
against a wily fox.
He caught him with an uppercut
and knocked his socks clean off.
He fought a lion, big and fierce,
but Rocky was too quick.
He danced in circles 'round the ring
until the beast was sick.
He fought a Bengal tiger once,
it lasted fifteen rounds,
but Rocky beat him black and blue
before the cat could pounce.
He knocked spots off the cheetahs,
stripped stripes off zebra's too.
And once bashed an elephant
on a trip to Brooklyn zoo.
The thunder from down under
had fought a hundred fights,
but not a creature great or small
could put out Rocky's lights.
There's a reason for his toughness
and why he was so smart,
Rocky fought them with his brain
instead of his big heart.
