Start of Story



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.
Then the Stork
Gave a Philosophic Talk
Till the Hippopotami
Said: "Ask no further 'What am I?'"
While the Elephant
Said something quite irrelevant



And the Goose--
Well,
the Goose _was_ a Goose
In Johnny Crow's Garden.



And the Mouse
Built himself a little House
Where the Cat
Sat down beside the Mat
In Johnny Crow's Garden.



And the Whale
Told a very long Tale
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.



"GOOD-BYE!"
