There was panic in the parlours and bowling in the halls,

There was crying in the cow-sheds and shrieking in the stalls. When the Toad— came— home!

When the Toad— came— home! There was smashing in of window and crashing in of door, There was chivvying of weasels that fainted on the floor , When the Toad— came— home!IMG_3770
Bang! go the drums! The trumpeters are tooting and the soldiers are saluting And the cannon they are shooting and the motor-cars are hooting, As the— Hero— comes!

Shout— Hoo-ray! And let each one of the crowd try and shout it very loud, In honour of an animal of whom you’re justly proud, For it’s Toad’s— great— day!**IMG_3780
