If I had a helicopter whom would I invite
To hover round the sky with me at a quite horrendous height?
I wouldn't ask a hippo for he'd be too huge and fat
And I wouldn't ask a humpback whale for it would squash me flat!
A hartebeest would speak a language that would be obscure
And a hawk would peck my hand and then we'd hurtle down for sure!
A harp-seal would be gentle but would make a heap of mess
And a hermit crab might nip me when it hopped inside my dress.
A hedgehog might get friendly and then scratch me on the knee
And a heron might see fish and then dive down into the sea.
A harvest mouse might be quite sweet but tickle me to death;
A hyena's laugh, hilarious, would take away my breath.
A horse might kick its heels up and destroy the fuselage
And a howler monkey has a voice that's, hopelessly, too large.
No, I think I'll choose a humming-bird; it's small and rather sweet,
And a humming-bird hamburger could be a hearty treat!
