Ah the Countryside


I saw a rabbit today
It made me smile
I heard a duck so gay
A cat purred away

As I rode along the path
I met a cow
I started to do my math
Counted 30 now

Ah the countryside
A Horse a bird a dog
I really should decide
To keep a logg

You cannot keep track
So many things to see
I go and lye on my back
Watch a squirrel in a tree
