Whales have calves,
Cats have kittens,
Bears have cubs,
Bats have bittens,
Swans have cygnets,
Seals have puppies,
But guppies just have little guppies.
The man in the wilderness asked of me,
“How many strawberries grow in the salt sea?”
I answered him, as I thought good,
As many a ship as sails in the wood.
The man in the wilderness asked me why
His hen could swim and his pig could fly.
I answered him as I thought best,
“They were both born in a cuckoo’s nest.”
The man in the wilderness asked me to tell
All the sands in the sea and I counted them well.
He said he with a grin, “And not one more?”
I answered him, “Now you go make sure.”
I Cartoni dello Zecchino d’Oro – Volume 6
“Stavolta la corrida si conclude con la sconfitta del torero, sommerso dai fischi e dai pomodori. Ma a riportare il buonumore penserà la mamma riunendo a tavola tutta la famiglia… toro compreso.”
