    My Grandpa’s Zoo

    I went to see my grandpa.
    I thought he owned a zoo,
    For there were lots of horses there
    And lots of brown cows too.
    I saw some playful puppies
    And heard a quacking duck.
    There also was a small white hen
    That liked to say, “cluck, cluck.”
    The pigs I saw went, “oink, oink, oink”;
    The kittens cried, “mew, mew.”
    I really had a grand old time
    While at my grandpa’s zoo!
