Lions running over the green,
Fiercest of creatures that ever were seen,
Chasing Tom and Dick and Sue—
I hope they won't be caught, don't you?
The lions chase them through the gate,
But Sue cries out: "O lions, wait,
My shoe's untied!" One lion then
Ties the lacing up again.
And after that the chase goes on
Until the afternoon is gone—
The fiercest creatures ever seen,
Lions running over the green!
