Hello! I'm here, or back, or whatever. Sorry to be away from the lighter side of Mudcat for so long.

I still have a song put aside that I "otter" finish... but here's something I dashed off quickly for this Challenge, with the recent Secret Santa threads in mind.


AN EMU IS COMIN' TO TOWN
(Tune: "Santa Claus is Comin' to Town")

You met a large lout
With big-white-dot eye.
His chest "hairs" stick out
But he ain't no guy:
An emu is comin' to town.

Escapin' and missed,
A chicken king-size
Wants to hide out
But can't hide those eyes.
An emu is comin' to town.

He sees you when he's peeping
Through windows he might break.
His nose is tappin' glass and wood
So he could a good mess make!

So you better watch out
Your window so high.
You better not doubt
That fella is nigh:
An emu is comin' to town.

With little thick brain
And feather-filled bum
Neck that can stretch
And legs that can run
An emu is comin' to town.

With burly big men
Who come from the zoo
Chasin' him 'round
With nets and ropes, too:
An emu is comin' to town.

The birds in Perth and Queensland
Are glad that Aussie's free
They'll celebrate their bonzer mate
Who is still an escapee!

So you better watch out
Your window so high.
You better not doubt
That fella is nigh:
An emu is comin' toooo townnnnn!
