Michael Flanders (1 March 1922 – 14 April 1975) was an English actor, broadcaster, and writer and performer of comic songs. The music of his songs was usually written by Donald Swann, who also performed with him.
- Pity the poor old rhino with
A bodger on its bonce.
- The Rhinoceros
- The bottle-nosed whale is a furlong long,
And likewise wise
But headstrong strong
- The Whale
- Away on the hilltop sat combing her hair
His fair Hippopotamine maid.
The Hippopotamus was no ignoramus
And sang her this sweet serenade:
Mud! Mud! Glorious mud!
Nothing quite like it for cooling the blood.
So, follow me, follow, down to the hollow,
And there let us wallow in glorious mud.
- The Hippopotamus Song
