Goosey Goosey Gander

Is like the salamander -

    At home on land and water

     He does the things he ought-ter.


He’s a most efficient guard dog;

More ferocious than a warthog.

    His cosy feathers, white or grey,

    Make cosy fillings for duvets.


Potatoes cooked in goose fat?

Nothing can surpass that -

   And when you have a chesty cold,

   Rub goose-fat on your chest we’re told.
