[Blunderov] This seemed to ring a bell. Happy w/e all.
Best regards.

"...she (Mary Midgley ed.) observes that the question “what is he afraid
of?” has persistently proved to be one of the most illuminating questions
one can ask of philosophers. The answer, usually, is appearing weak."

*The Gnu Song

A year ago last Thursday
I was strolling in the zoo
When I met a man
Who thought he knew the lot
He was laying down the law
About the habits of baboons
And the number of quills a porcupine has got

So I asked him what's that creature there
He answered, "It's a helk"
I might have gone on thinking that was true
If the animal in question hadn't
Put that chap to shame
and remarked "I ain't a helk"
I'm a Gnu
I'm a Gnu
I'm a Gnu
How do you do?
You really ought to know
who's who
I'm a Gnu
Spelled G-N-U
I'm g-not a camel or a kangaroo
So let me introduce
I'm g-neither man or moose
Oh G-no, G-no, G-no - I'm a Gnu

I had taken furnished lodgings down on Rustington-on-Sea
Whence I traveled on to Ashton-under-Lyme
And the second night I stayed there
I was wakened from a dream
Which I'll tell you all about some other time
Among the hunting trophies on the wall above my head
Stuffed and mounted was a face I thought I knew
A bison, no it's not a bison
An okapi, I don't think it's an okapi
Could it be a hartebeest?
When I seemed to hear a voice

I'm a Gnu
I'm a Gnu
A g-nother Gnu

I wish I could g-nash my teeth at you
I'm a Gnu
How do you do?
You really ought to k-now
a w-ho's wh-o

I'm a Gnu
Spelled G-N-U
Call me bison or okapi and I'll sue
G-nor am I in the least like that dreadful hartebeest
G-No G-No G-No!

I'm a Gnu
G-no, G-no, G-no
I'm a Gnu
G-no, G-no, G-no
I'm a Gnu
