Owl

Cottleston, Cottleston, Cottleston Pie.
A fly can’t bird, but a bird can fly.
Ask me a riddle and I reply:
COTTLESTON, COTTLESTON, COTTLESTON PIE.

Cottleston, Cottleston, Cottleston Pie.
A fish can’t whistle and neither can I
Ask me a riddle and I reply:
COTTLESTON, COTTLESTON, COTTLESTON PIE.

Cottleston, Cottleston, Cottleston Pie.
Why does a chicken, I don’t know why.
Ask me a riddle and I reply:
COTTLESTON, COTTLESTON, COTTLESTON PIE.

(A. A. Milne, “Winnie-the-Pooh”, 1926)
