I’m eating lots and lots of food
so I’ll grow big and tall.
You see, I just don’t have much fun
since I am short and small.
My best friend Hank’s an elephant
who people sure admire.
Folks always stop and stare at him;
of Hank — they never tire.
If I grow big and tall like Hank
a zoo will be my house
and folk will come and stare at me
and say, “That’s quite the mouse!”
