Too Many Pets

I’m facing a challenge and I’m taking bets That I can remember the names of my pets There’s Tommy and Jonnie and Sally and Barry The one over there I believe might be Harry Tiddles and Wriggles and Bruno and Gerry Never stray far from their bestest mate Terry But Sue, Lou and Nancy, Alberto And Drew Appear to be loners, a bit like Baloo That crowd to one side hang around in a gang But seem to be led by Mei Ling and Chang Now, can I recall who the rest of them are I’ll try but they all look the same from afar Lee, James, Amanda, Frank, Annie and Les Annabelle, Gilbert, Wilbert and Dez Sonya, Sam, Lesley-Anne, Mary-Lou, Bess Stephanie, Bethany, Cuthbert and Jess Edward and Jedward, Samson and Ben Zebedee, Gerry-Lee, Timothy, Jen Josh, Tod and Spartacus, Abbie and Sid Oliver, Gulliver, Billy the Kid There’s Tyson and Dyson, and Eric and Jim And Betty and Hetty, Jemima and Kim I got them from someone who lives down the road And carried them all to my humble abode I needed no crate cos the breeder had bowls He told me that’s how one should carry tadpoles

Lol! Cute! Eight years ago when I met my sweety, I had 21 pets (mostly birds and fish) he impressed me with trying to remember all of their names ;) xomo
