What Does the Donkey Bray About?

What does the donkey bray about?

What does the pig grunt through his snout?

What does the goose mean by a hiss?

Oh, Nurse, if you can tell me this,

Iíll give you such a kiss.


The cockatoo calls "cockatoo,"

The magpie chatters "how d'ye do?"

The jackdaw bids me "go away,"

Cuckoo cries "cuckoo" half the day:

What do the others say?
