JOHNNY CROW’S GARDEN

Johnny crow

Would dig and sow

Till he made a little garden

And the lion

Had a green and yellow tie on

In Johnny Crow’s garden

And the rat

Wore a feather in his hat

But the bear had nothing to wear

In Johnny Crow’s garden

So the ape

Took his measure with a tape

In Johnny Crow’s garden

Then the crane

Was caught in the rain

In Johnny Crow’s garden

And the beaver

Was afraid he had a fever

But the goat

Said

It’s nothing but his throat

In Johnny Crow’s garden

And the pig

Danced a jig

In Johnny Crow’s garden

Till the stork gave a philosophic Talk

Till the hippopotami

Said “Ask no further: What am I?”

While the elephant

Said something quite irrelevant

In Johnny Crow”s garden

And the goose

Well

The goose was a goose

In Johnny Crow”s garden

And the mouse

Built himself a little mouse

Where the cat

Sat down beside the mat

In Johnny Crow’s garden

And the owl

Was a funny old fowl

And the fox

Put them all in the stocks

In Johnny Crow’s garden

But Johnny Crow

he let them go

And they all sat down

To their dinner in a row

IN JOHNNY CROW’S GARDEN
