A lion has a tail and a very fine tail,
And so has an elephant, and so has a whale,
And so has a crocodile, and so has a quail’€“
 They’€™ve all got tails but me.
If I had sixpence I would buy one;
I’€™d say to the shopman, '€˜Let me try one’€™;
I’€™d say to the elephant, '€˜This is my one.'€™
 They’€™d all come round to see.
Then I’€™d say to the lion, '€˜Why, you’€™ve got a tail!
And so has the elephant, and so has the whale!
And, look! There’€™s a crocodile! He’€™s got a tail!
 You’€™ve all got tails like me!'€™
