Young Fred he came home wi’ a lizard
he wanted the whole world to see
he showed it to his Mum and Dad
and talked about it wi’ glee!
Now his dad he brought the lizard
a new home of glass that stood by settee.
Wi atmosphere and temperature settings
to turn up and down by degree.
Now Fred, he grew awfully worried.
would he like it in th’ glass house?, he feared
And one day, his fears they were realised
when his pet lizard – a chameleon – disappeared.
And Mum and Dad they searched round the houses
and the garden wi very big tree
but chameleon he had changed colour
so the family could no longer see
But soon, the chameleon was hungry,
and appeared right in front of Fred’s eyes!
he’d wondered off you see – in search for some tea
and was eating some spiders and flies
