Song of the Cheetah

Wednesday, July 02, 2008

By Jude Winters

One day a cheetah was walking by the river
He was looking for some food
He was walking through the jungle
Then he saw a monkey in the tree
Then he was climbing up his tree and got it with his paw
Then he got it with his teeth
Then he gobbled it up

Then he was still hungry
Then he was still walking through the forest
Then he saw a giraffe
The giraffe was running away
The cheetah got it with his tail on his [the giraffe's] tail
Then he ate it.

Then he was still hungry (Jude: "That's a lot of 'T's'!" Mom: "That's because you are starting every line with 'then'!")
He saw a zebra
The zebra was running away faster and faster
Thenthecheetahwasrunningfasterandfaster
Then he got it on it's leg.
Then he ate it.

Then he was still hungry (Mom: "He was still hungry? Are you SERIOUS?!" Jude: "Yep.")
Then he was still walking through the forest
Then he saw a spider
Then the spider was spraying some web and swinging and swinging and swinging
And made a spider web
So the cheetah can't get through.
Then he got through anyway (Mom: "How did he do that?" Jude: "He was just runnin' across it!")
So he got it on it's head.
Then he ate it.

Then he was still hungry
Then he was walking through the jungle
Then he found an elephant
The elephant was running and running,
Then he got it.
Then he ate it. (Mom: "Is he full yet?" Jude: "Nope.")

Then he was still hungry
Then he was walking through the forest
Then he found a tiger
Then they were fighting, fighting,
Then the cheetah got the tiger.
Then he was full. (Mom: "Did he eat the tiger?" Jude: "Yes." Mom: "Cheetahs don't eat tigers." Jude: "It's just a silly song." Mom: "No doubt.")

  1. Wait... so you don't say peep about this hypothetical cheetah eating giraffes, zebras, SPIDERS, and elephants... but tigers? wtfkidtheydonoteattigers? You are are almost as wacky as your kid. (They monkey I'll let slide, for at least being a mammal, and maybe it was a really little monkey who was blind and had a bum leg)

  2. I am well aware, and I think Jude is too, that cheetahs don't eat those other things. There were, btw, other comments that I didn't necessarily put into the post for continuity's sake. After all, as Jude said, "It's just a silly song."

    But thanks for the link! :-)

    You make me laugh, bro.

  3. I'm not sure what's funnier (zatawird?) Jude's song or the playful banter between siblings! HA!

  4. Dawn - Well, at least we know the "funny genes" are legitimate!

    Rohini - You, too, will soon experience this! :-)
