Said the mouse to the louse, Let’s get out of the house,
And go see the pig with the sky blue snout.
I dont know why, you need to see the pig,
Is this frivolous or is it something big?
I want to se the marvelous pig,
Not because he does a jig,
Or because he eats a fig, no
It’s something we share.
Have’t you noticed?
You haven’t the remotest,
There’s something about us,
It’s something we share,
Something deep inside us,
Something others may not see,
You don’t see it in Me, but
Because he realizes it in him,
Discerns something of the universe, something kind, some empathetic response,
I see it brightly in him,
He sees it loudly in Me.
I love him and he loves me,
We just feel better when we’re tigether, you know?
Do you have someone like that? Said the mouse with an orange tail.
I do, said the louse, it’s you.
Then come along and we will go see the pig with the blue snout.
OK, I ‘ll come, but first I must paint my toenails yellow.
