It was a beautiful day, So I visited the zoo, A sign said "Wild Cats This Way," Soon they came into view. The tiger's eyes said, "I'm gentle as rain; Come pat my head," So I leaped over the chain. It was a brief embrace, I'll cut to the chase, That's how I lost my calf bone, It's best to leave tigers alone.
