As Big As Your Eye

Ever seen a mouse
As big as a house
Or a fly as big as your eye
How bout a bee
With a sunburned knee
Or a turkey that sniffles and cries

What about a chicken
Wearing green mittens
Or an kangaroo singing the blues 
An elephant with hands
Doing hand stands
Or a hippo wearing green shoes

Here's a few more
A gold fish that roars
Or a cat with a pink feathered hat
A pet cockatoo
Named Bartholomew
Or a sensitive tiger named Matt

Or finally a goat
Sailing a boat
With a pipe sticking out of his gob
A squirrel with a cold
And a tooth made of gold
Or a hamster who's first name is Bob
