  • 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
