Upon a big brown bear,
Another ono laughed loud In glee
And rnccd around tho track,
And sho wuh seated fcnrlcssly
Upon (i lion's back.
And ono rode on u tiger llerce,
Another on a deer,
Will o others rode on prancing steeds
Without n sign of fear.
And round and round tho track they

And all the little tots went homo
