They called her Leaping Leena,
She was famous through the land,
It started when she jumped a cattle dog,
Then a woolly lamb.
Next she jumped a wheelbarrow,
Then she jumped herself a car,
Her fame was spreading everywhere,
Through shearing shed and bar.
Next she jumped a wagon
Without a second thought,
Then she jumped a brahma bull,
After the wild beast was caught.
But alas her career came to an end
When her eyesight started to go,
Se jumped right over a cliff
Thinking there was water down below.
