Chin-up

There once was a nanny,* lived in New Guinea She's spot her billy, O would she whinny She'd kick up her feet And then she would bleat She'd curl the hair on his chin-chin-chinny *A nanny is a female goat

By gosh this nanny reminds me of one I had. She broke her chain to go to Billy, and do you think Billy was happy when I tried to retrieve her - thank you Gershon - Lindsay
