Song of Mr. Toad

By Kenneth Grahame



The world has held great Heroes,
As history-books have showed;
But never a name to go down to fame
Compared with that of Toad!

The clever men at Oxford
Know all that there is to be knowed.
But they none of them know one half as much
As intelligent Mr Toad!



The clever men at Oxford
Know all that there is to be knowed.
But they none of them know one half as much
As intelligent Mr Toad!

The animals sat in the Ark and cried,
Their tears in torrents flowed.
Who was it said, 'There's land ahead'?
Encouraging Mr Toad!

The army all saluted
As they marched along the road.
Was it the King? Or Kitchener?
No. It was Mr Toad.

The Queen and her Ladies-in-waiting
Sat at the window and sewed.
She cried, 'Look! Who's that HANDSOME man?'
They answered, 'Mr Toad.'

Dressing up with the stuffed shirt

Counting those cookies on the front
My honour is as great as dirt
Mr Toad, nobody dare confront


Spoken with clumsy Cockney
Jumpping on people on the road
Strutting away like a looney
"Moi, moi, it's me Mr Toad."
