The Elephant Goes
Submitted by Freta
This is the way the elephant goes
With a curly trunk instead of a nose
The rhino all hairy and fat
Has a sharp horn in place of a hat
The hippo with his mouth so wide
Let's see what's inside
The wiggley snake upon the ground
Crawls along without a sound
But monkey see, monkey do
I the funniest animal I ever knew!
Note: Make actions for each animal (swing arms like elephant nose, put hands on head for rhino's hat, etc)
