I thought I saw something really scary,

It was kind of small  and kind of hairy!

With a pointy nose and big front teeth,

Lord knows what perils lie beneath!

I’m a natural when I’m herding sheep,

I control their movements in my sleep,

Anything murine* fills me with feat,

I’m mouse-allergic, that much is clear.
