DO ANIMALS GET SICK LIKE ME?
In a small white house not far from the city
There lived a little boy whose name was Timmy
Timmy loved to go to school each and everyday
He’d rather learn new things then go out and play.
Reading books was Timmy’s favorite thing to do
Stores he loved to read were like “Whinny the Pooh”
Sometimes Timmy would paint pictures at school
A canvass he would paint on while he sat on a stool.
But a day came along when Timmy became sick
Mommy had him stay home and school he surely did miss
Mommy took him to the doctor to have him checked out
The doctor said, “You have tonsillitis, there’s not even a doubt.”
“Your tonsils are all swollen and look so very sore
I’ll call in a prescription to your pharmacy store
Take this medicine your Mommy gives to you
Then in time, I know you will feel good as new.”
While Timmy was at home lying in his bed
There was a big question that popped into his head
“Do Animals get sick like you or I do?
Do they go to the doctor, like Mommy took me to?”
He thought how the giraffe’s neck was tall and so lean…
