Deep in a hole beneath the ground
lived something unusual that made not a sound.
What was it, what was it, tell me quick.
Was it a snake?
Nah, none of these things, my goslings. T’were a bone.
T’were a bone of a beast, a gigantic colossus,
four hefty legs and a long proboscis.
It was a rhinoceros?
T’were a bone of a trunk-tooting flummoxing lummox.
A bone nigh as big as a bloody great planet.
A bone of a great lumbering mammoth.
And I’m telling yer now, it weren’t alone.
