There once was a dolphin from the sea

Who’s fed up of swimming, likes to ski

To the mountain he goes

Too much for him he froze

He changed his mind went back to the quay

This dolphin still not satisfied

Some places and things to do he tried

Didn’t matter he’s big

Thinks of himself as pig

Or perhaps he just needs a new bride*
