Sophie and her Pig
A doodad composed for my little friend Sophie and her favorite toy pig (who doesn't quite fit into doll dresses, but tries anyway).
THE PRINCESS AND THE PIG
There was a princess name of Sophie
And she had a little pig.
It wasn't very clever
And it wasn't very big.
But it was just as loyal
As the day is long,
It could whistle, it could dance
And it could sing a little song.
"Pig," said princess Sophie,
"Let's go to Bangalore!
We'll see Dido, Queen of Cabbage
And we'll take a river tour."
"Splendid," said the little pig,
"Let's go across the sea,
With tortoises and porpoises,
And jellyfish for tea."
They sailed across the ocean's span
On many a cresting wave,
And washed ashore near Bangalore,
Inside an enchanted cave....
