larry the leapin lizard
boss i don t know if i ve
told you about larry the
leapin lizard or not
he s a really nice guy
but he s always landing
smack dab in the middle
of something

he s one of the last of
his kind boss there used
to be a slew of them
during the days of little
orphan annie but they
nearly died out from
overuse

anyway freddie the flea
and i were trudging along
a soggy bugtussle road
one day when larry leapt
into the middle of a mud
puddle just in front of
us completely drenching
my mousy face whiskers
and jaws all the way down
to my little tail and paws
but boss it nearly drowned
poor Freddie

woo-whooo says larry after
every leap
