THE BIG BABOON


[Illustration]

The Big Baboon is found upon

The plains of Cariboo;

He goes about with nothing on,


[Illustration]

(A shocking thing to do.)


But if he dressed respectable


[Illustration]

And let his whiskers grow,


How like this Big Baboon would be


[Illustration]

To Mister So-and-so!
