The Puffin
words from the poem by florence jacques; music by Roland Hess

Oh there once was a puffin,
Just the shape of a muffin,
And he lived on an island
In the bright blue sea.

He ate little fishes
That were most delicious,
And he had them for supper,
And he had them for tea.

Now this poor little puffin,
He couldn't play nothin',
'Cause he had nobody to play with at all.
So he sat on his island,
And he cried for a while,
And he felt very lonely,
And he felt very small.

Then along came the fishes,
who said "If you wishes,
You can have us playmates
Instead of for tea."

Now they all play together
In all sorts of weather,
And the puffin eats pancakes
Like you and like me.
