The Zebra’s a wondrous creature indeed,

a horse with stripes you see.

The white and black lines going down his spine,

are all neat and orderly.

There is one thing I would like to know,

and answer me if you can.

Is this dear beast white with black stripes at least,

or was black with white stripes the plan?

Never the less I must really confess,

what a wonderful thing it would be;

To ride on his back if you did have the knack,

just so the whole world could see.
