Merry Musician (OT2003-3002-007)



A merry musician wandered once
On the bank of the river Nile
Imagine his fright when hove in sight
A monstrous crocodile

His teeth were long his jaws were strong
His mouth was horribly wide
And he grinned a grin, "Dear sir come in
There's plenty of room inside"

Transcription

A merry musician wandered once
On the bank of the river Nile
Imagine his fright when hove in sight
A monstrous crocodile

His teeth were long his jaws were strong
His mouth was horribly wide
And he grinned a grin, "Dear sir come in
There's plenty of room inside"
