Hippy-Hi-Hoppy, the big fat toad, 

Greeted his friends at a turn of the road. 

Said he to the snail: 

"Here's a ring for your tail 

If you'll go into town for my afternoon mail."

Said he to the rat: 

"I have talked with the cat; 

And she'll nab you so quick you won't know where you're at."

Said he to the lizard: 

"I'm really no wizard, 

But I'll show you a trick that will tickle your gizzard."

Said he to the lark: "When it gets fairly dark 

We'll chase the mosquitoes in Peek-a-Boo Park."

Said he to the owl: 

"If it were not for your scowl 

I'd like you as well as most any wild fowl."

Said he to the wren: 

"You're tiny, but then I'll marry you quick, 

if you'll only say when."
