I know, everybody knows, you got one tail, four feet, twelve toes Mr Rhino, look what grows, Two big horns on the tip of your nose.
Now you got three friends, Mr Rhinoceros,
Elephant, buffalo and hippopotamus
You got two bad eyes, but you’re not deaf
And in Africa and Asia there’s not many of you left
Mr Rhino, everybody knows
you got one tail, four feet, twelve toes
Mr Rhino, look what grows
To big horns on the tip of your nose…
