Look! It’s raining cats and dogs
And it’s even raining frogs.
Puppies and kittens
Fly all over Britain -
And so do the toads and the frogs.
There’s a cow high up in the sky,
And we’re told that pigs might fly.
Oh mind! Duck your head
And watch where you tread
When the piggies are up in the sky.
Can animals fly in the sky?
Well one animal really can fly,
For a bat’s not a bird,
But a reindeer? Absurd!
But most of them really don’t try.
