Out of the gate
and off for a walk
went Hairy Maclary
from Donaldson's Dairy


and Hercules Morse
as big as a horse

with Hairy Maclary
from Donaldson's Dairy

Bottomley Potts
covered in spots
Hercules Morse
as big as a horse

and Hairy Maclary
from Donaldson's Dairy

Muffin McLay
like a bundle of hay,
Bottomly Potts
all covered in spots,
Hercules Morse
as big as a horse

and Hairy Maclary
from Donaldson's Dairy


Bitzer Maloney
all skinny and bony,
Muffin McLay
like a bundle of hay,
Bottomly Potts
covered in spots,
Hercules Morse
as big as a horse

and Hairy Maclary
from Donaldson's Dairy


Schnitzel von Krumm
with a very low tum,
Bitzer Maloney
all skinny and bony,
Muffin McLay
like a bundle of hay,
Bottomly Potts
covered in spots,
Hercules Morse
as big as a horse

and Hairy Maclary
from Donaldson's Dairy

With tails in the air
they trotted on down
past the shops and the park
to the far end of town.
They sniffed at the smells
and they snooped at each door,
when suddenly,
out of the shadows
they
saw...

SCARFACE CLAW
the toughest Tom
in
town.



"EEEEEOWWWFFTZ!"
said Scarface Claw.

Off with a yowl,
a wail and a howl,
a scatter of paws
and a clatter of claws,
went Schnitzel von Krumm
with a very low tum,
Bitzer Maloney
all skinny and bony,
Muffin McLay
like a bundle of hay,
Bottomly Potts
covered in spots,
Hercules Morse
as big as a horse

and Hairy Maclary
from Donaldson's Dairy

straight back home
to bed.
