Fatty Rascal's Big Ears

Gary Hill 1964 (Sheffield, England)

Fatty Rascal burst into tears
When someone said he had “big ears”
For big ears indeed Fatty had
He got them from his mom and dad

His ears where massive
Hung down to his knees
And flapped around
In the windy breeze

What with his big ears,
Friends called him Jumbo
And Fatty was dumb
A bit of a dumbo

He confronted his parents
“Why the big ears” he did rant
“You’ve big ears” they replied
“Because you’re an elephant”

“OK, the big ears
Are alright, I suppose”
” I guess it also explains
Why I have such a long nose”
