Mr Anteater


Hello Mr. Anteater
And how are you today?
I saw you over there
Just going about your day.

You have a sticky tongue
Just made for eating ants
You snuff into their homes
And scare them out their pants.

Your claws are long and sharp
Just right for lots of digging
You can burrow in the ground
With your bushy tail a wriggling.

So hello Mr. Anteater
And how are you today?
Busy finding food I see
Whilst your cubs run round and play.

Hello Mr. Anteater
And how are you today?
I saw you over there
Just going about your day.

You have a sticky tongue
Just made for eating ants
You snuff into their homes
And scare them out their pants.

Your claws are long and sharp
Just right for lots of digging
You can burrow in the ground
With your bushy tail a wriggling.

So hello Mr. Anteater
And how are you today?
Busy finding food I see
Whilst your cubs run round and play.
