"Whoo-Whoo"! By L. Don Oliver

We all called him "Whoo-Whoo", No purer person you will ever _; Every morning we would gather, To watch him chugging down the _;

Every morning we would pump our fists, Like little children are oft to ; He would pull his imaginary whistle chain, Then go, "whoo-whoo", "whoo-whoo", "whoo-__";

"Whoo-Whoo" was a slow learner, And he wasn't very __ One thing that he did possess, Was a great big loving __;

The little money he made, From clearing vacant lots, To him that wasn't a great _; Each morning he would buy bread, For all the little birds, And the small animals to ;

There is no difference, Between the left and right; They'll take all you have, With great delight;
