Poem by Alan Alexander Milne


Tails


A lion has a tail and a very fine tail,
And so has an elephant, and so has a whale,
And so has a crocodile, and so has a quail
Theyve all got tails but me.

If I had sixpence I would buy one;
Id say to the shopman, Let me try one;
Id say to the elephant, This is my one.
Theyd all come round to see.

Then Id say to the lion, Why, youve got a tail!
And so has the elephant, and so has the whale!
And, look! Theres a crocodile! Hes got a tail!
Youve all got tails like me!
