was an old owl who sat in an oak
The more he heard the less he spoke
The less he spoke the more he heard
Why aren’t we all like that wise old bird

Soldiers and Sailors
Sapper, soldier, combat engineer,
The best of the army for a chat and to grab a beer,
They will fight and drink, drink and fight, but all in good jest,
Sign up and have some fun, soldiering is the best,
At the down of the sun and all through the night,
A Sapper will have your back, they’ll never lose the fight.
Baby birdie, basking beaver-
Burying in a burrow.
Baby birdie lifting lever,
Making up a furrow.
Beaver cleaver dunk’n water
Birdie drenchin thorough.
