What's Your Favorite Animal?

from the album

What is your favorite animal?
is it a monkey or a bull
are you a fan of the toucan
or do prefer a lemur
the penguins and their style
the ferocious crocodile
what is your favorite animal today?

Grizzly bears, tortoises, hares and zebras
in the sky you spy a meadowlark
chimpanzees, and manatees, and cheetahs
These squids and eel all make me feel like I’m Noah’s Ark

what is your favorite animal
is it a dingo or a squirrel?
Do you stand and give a cheer
when you pass by a reindeer?
Does a lump rise to your throat
each time you see a billy goat?
What is your favorite animal today?

ferrets fawns parrots prawns and llamas
roam the globe along with porcupine
A panda bear in black and white pajamas
Thinks staying in one place is mighty fine.

What is your favorite animal?
is it a Zorse from Istanbul
do you marvel at the serval
favor hamsters rats and gerbils
the duck-billed platypus
the mythical Rocknoceros
what is your favorite animal today?

can you stomp like an elephant
now hop like a frog
swing like a monkey
quack like a duck

Armadillos, mice, chinchillas, aardvarks,
Quadrupeds, mammalians all four
Octopi, sunfish, megamouth sharks
Are really real not fables, tales, or lore.

What is your favorite animal?
is it a monkey or a bull
are you a fan of the toucan
or do prefer a lemur
the penguins and their style
the ferocious crocodile
