CAMPSONG SARAH THE WHALE

IN FRISCO BAY THERE WAS A WHALE, THEY FED HER OYSTERS BY THE PAIL,
BY BATHTUB, BY TEACUP, BY THIMBLE AND BY SCHOONER.
HER NAME WAS SARAH AND WHEN SHE SMILED,
SHE SHOWED HER TEETH FOR MILES AND MILES,
AND TONSILS, AND SPARE RIBS AND THINGS TOO FIERCE TO MENTION.
OH, WHAT YOU DO WITH A WHALE LIKE THAT? OH, WHAT WOULD YOU DO
IF SHE SAT ON YOUR HAT? OR YOUR TOOTHBRUSH, OR YOUR COUNSELOR,
OR ANYTHING'S THAT'S USEFUL LIKE THAT.
