Have you heard the latest, kiddies?
Archibald Mouse is confused
He thinks he's a big scary tiger
So no more chewing on shoes!
Though he doesn't have any tiger stripes
He says they came off in the bath
Also says the soap made him shrink
He sure can make people laugh!
He tries to let out a big tiger roar
But all that comes out is a squeak
Archie's been trying so very hard
In fact he's been trying for weeks!
Gotta feel for this cute little critter
Perhaps there's a blow-up pill
That when he takes it he gets real big
Last I heard he was trying still!
So even if you're just a wee tike
Remember to keep thinking big
Keep trying hard to better yourself
And you'll wind up dancing a jig!
