How the Monkey Got a Drink
When He Was Thirsty

ONCE upon a time the monkey made the tiger very angry. This is how it happened. The monkey was seated high up among the leafy branches of a mango tree playing upon his guitar. The tiger passed that way and lay down under the tree to rest. Just to tease him the monkey played and sang this little song:

"Tango ti tar, tango ti tar,
The tiger's bones are in my guitar.
Tee hee, Tee hee."
