Lineages 9

Mary had a little giraffe,
with a coat of red and yellow;
and everywhere that Mary went,
the giraffe was sure to go.

It followed her to church for mass,
which was against some rule;
it made the people laugh and sass
the priest who was a mule.

The priest cried, in a whinny,
“Why won’t you just get out!”
The giraffe just laughed, “You ninny,
why do you choose to pout?”

The priest sniffed, then blew his nose,
the giraffe said, “Don’t you know?
Everywhere that Mary goes,
joy is sure to follow.”
