This Week's Action Rhymes:
There's a wide eyed owl with a pointed nose,
Two pointed ears, and claws for toes.
He lives in a tree and when he looks at you
He flaps his wings and he says "Whoo Whoo!"
Whooo, said the owl in the dark old tree
Whee, said the wind with a howl, wheeee
They didn't scare each other,
But they sure scared ME!
