There Was a Small Boy

    There was a small boy

    Who lived by a road.

    He had a pet goat,

    And he had a pet toad.

    The goat sang quite well

    In a quavery way,

    But the toad was so small

    He had little to say.

    On special occasions

    They’d sing and they’d hum.

    “Blaaaaaah!” went the goat

    While the frog sang “Ha-rumm!”
