MONKEY AND DONKEY


Monkey donkey two friends
Live in a village,
Where does the crocodile live
They have no knowledge.
Monkey went to drink water
Donkey to graze grass,
Monkey saw a crocodile
A horse was seen by ass.
Monkey thought the crocodile
To be drown inthe water,
Donkey grinned and tried
To make horse flatter.
Monkey jumped in to water
To save the crocodile,
Horse understood ass's fulness
And just gave a smile.
Crocodile laughed ha...ha... ha
Tastey monkey meat,
Horse caught donkey
And tried to beat.
Monkey swam to save own life
Save me God!
Donkey tugged horseman
And ran on the road.
Monkey jumped on the bank
Oh! I am alive!
Donkey met monkey
And told own grief.

    Monkey donkey two friends
    Live in a village,
    Where does the crocodile live
    They have no knowledge.
    Monkey went to drink water
    Donkey to graze grass,
    Monkey saw a crocodile
    Donkey saw him dead
    Floating atop the Nile?

    I'm just guessing at the ending here :)
