What a queer bird
An old poem
What a queer bird is a poem from the nineteenth century or before. It is sometimes attributed to Ogden Nash but has been around long before him. It has also been set to music, in round form, and is sung in several Youtube videos. The words are as follows:
What a queer bird, the frog are
When he sit he stand (almost)
When he walk he fly (almost)
When he talk he cry (almost)
He ain’t got no sense, hardly
He ain’t got no tail, neither, hardly
He sit on what he ain’t got hardly
