There Was a Small Boy

“There Was a Small Boy,” Friend, Sept. 1992, 27

There Was a Small Boy

There was a small boy

Who lived by a road.

He had a pet goat,

And he had a pet toad.

The goat sang quite well

In a quavery way,

But the toad was so small

He had little to say.

On special occasions

They’d sing and they’d hum.

“Blaaaaaah!” went the goat

While the frog sang “Ha-rumm!”
