Ronaldo the Aardvark

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 It’s not just us humans who play Football
Oh no, animals like the beautiful game too
Dolphins like a kickabout with jellyfish
In fact it’s the number one sport in any zoo.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Camels like to hump the ball upfield
Swallows and Swifts love to fly down the wing
Sloth’s like to take their time on the ball
While Kingfishers get booked a lot for diving.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Spiders are good at setting up the offside trap
Cobra’s are deadly in a striking role
Crocodiles and Alligators snap up any crosses
But the foxes love to play in the hole.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Monkeys will always swing the ball about
Badgers and Bats prefer to play soccer at night
Giraffes win high balls and aerial duals
And Kangaroos are always up for a fight.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Pigs and Hippos like the pitches to be muddy
Penguins and Polar Bears prefer them covered in ice
But Owls are happy with any type of surface
As long as they’re marking Voles or Mice.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 But animal football also has it’s hooligans
Packs of Hyena’s love to go on the rampage
Whilst Chimpanzee’s like to wind up rival fans
Especially Lions, segregated inside their steel cage.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 So the next time your cat goes missing
Or your dog runs away when over the park
Don’t worry, because you now know where they’ll be
At a match, probably watching Ronaldo, the Aardvark !



After reading S.B.Ingles poem, Dolphin Friendly, it inspired me to write this. I really should get out more !

Now I know why I’ve never liked the Wednesday! ūüėČ
