On Top of an Iceberg
(Tune: On Top of Old Smokey)
On top of an iceberg,
All covered with snow,
I saw my first penguin,
And I wanted to know.
Oh, is it a bird,
Or, is it a fish?
I looked at his feathers,
And knew which was which.
I said, "Mr. Penguin, which species are you?"
He said, "I'm an emperor, and not a gentoo."
I said, "Mr. Penguin, what's under your patch?"
He said, "It's an egg, it's ready to hatch!"
I said, "Mr. Penguin, oh, where is your wife?"
"She's out in the ocean, she'll be back tonight."
Said Mr. Penguin, "Her name is Jill.
She's out in the ocean, feeding on krill."
The next thing I knew, I heard a small peep.
And I saw a chick, at the emperor's feet!
