Barney Owl

Barney Owl

Now once in a deepk old forest a long tome ago
There lived a family of big-eyed owls
Just after the winter snow
Now one had a name of Barney
A little one was he
And just like other children
Into every thing he sees

So when he was on his own one night
He played around in jest
And got over exited and fell out of his nest.
There be two little mice come walking by
And saw him on the ground
And so they tippy toed away
To frightened to make a sound

Then Barney turned around
And gave them such a fright
They looked at him he looked at them
And thought what a very strange sight.

Now this is a strange position
for an owl to be in
cause he's gone and made good friends with
what he would have for his dins

They thought it very funny
and all started acting daft
so they danced all through the forest
and the mice began to laugh

And just nearby was a hole in the ground
right under a big old tree
and out of it came a badger
to see what the noise could be.

Hello hello whats going on here
I'm sure this will not do
Little mice playing with an owl
Oh dear what a pickle and a stew

I don't want to be a spoil sport
and stop you having your game
but soon he will be hungering
and things won't be the same

Cause owls don't eat the same as you
they eat mice and creepy things
and when his belly starts a rumbleing
don't mistake if for the wind

Now once in a deep oldforest a long tome ago
There lives a family of big-eyed owls
Just after the winter snow
Now one had a name of Barney
A little one was he
And just like other children
Into every thing he sees

Barney Owl Barney Owl we love Barney Owl
