Gerry the dog,
went over the log.
He’s a very good dog,
and he jumps like a frog!
Santa’s Little Reindeer,
had a floppy ear.
When he was guiding the sleigh,
He went the wrong way!
can run so far.
He has a ping pong for a brain,
he lives in a house with no drain!
built like a can.
He lives in a huge house,
and he screams like a mouse!
likes to eat my shoe.
He is playful and funny,
but he screams like a bunny!
Trinket my pony,
she likes to eat baloney.
She rolls like a dog,
and jumps like a frog!
