With running mouth and wheel to match
They are a sight...

Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear
Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair

Fuzzy Wuzzy was a kitty

Recollections of a Pekingese

Remembering she loved me so.
Alone and frightened in that shop,
Hidden like a gerbil, laying low.
While wishing someone kind would stop.

I barked and yapped when she came near.
Because I knew she'd loved me...

Ode to my Gerbil
I’m scum, I know, I am an ass
I knew through cardboard you could pass

You chewed and chewed a great big hole,
I wish I knew you had a soul

You ran and laughed, but what you saw

The Runaway Gerbil
There was a hole in your cage
And out ran you
Head held high and laughing
Like a gerbil would do
You hid behind the dryer
And maybe slept a few
And had a merry time
Thinking we couldn't catch you
You grazed...
