 Ⅰ
Said the Duck to the Kangaroo,
" Good gracious ! How you hop !
" Over the fields and the water too,
" As if you never would stop !
" My life is a bore in this nasty pond,
" And I long to go out in the world beyond !
" I wish I could hop like you !
Said the Duck to the Kangaroo.

 Ⅱ
" Please give me a ride on your back ! "
said the Duck to the Kangaroo.
" I would sit quite still, and say nothing but 'Quack' ,
" The whole of the long day through !
" And we'd go to the Dee, and the jelly Bo Lee,
" Over the land, and over the seaー
" Please take me a ride ! O do !
Said the Duck to the Kangaroo.

 Ⅲ
Said the Kangaroo to the Duck,
" This requires some little reflection;
" Perhaps on the whole it might bring me luck,
" And there seems but one objection,
" Which is, if you'll let me speak so bold,
" Your feet are unpleasantly wet and cold,
" And would probably give me the rooー
" Matiz ! " said the Kangaroo.

 Ⅳ
Said the Duck, ” As I sat on the rocks,
" I have thought over that completely,
" And I bought four pairs of worsted socks,
" Which fit my web-feet nearly,
" And to keep out the cold I've bought a cloak,
" And every day a cigar I'll smoke,
" All to follow my own dear true
" Love of a Kangaroo ! "

 Ⅴ
Said the Kangaroo, " I'm ready !
" All in the moonlight pale,
" But to balance me well, dear Duck, sit steady !
" And quite at the end of my tail ! "

So away they went with a hop and a bound,
And they hopped the whole world three times round;
And who so happy ー O who,
As the Duck and the Kangaroo ?
