Quackers the Nuisance Duck .jpg
Quackers, The Nuisance Duck

Once there was a little duck -

    Quackers was her name -

But Quackers tapped on people's doors

     And always said the same:

 

Are you ready?

 

‘Quack quack quack quack quack quack quack!’

      Yes, this is what she said - - - - -

And: ‘Quack quack quack,’ and ‘quack,’ again -

     ‘I want some tasty bread.’

 

Some people liked the hungry duck

     Who tapped upon their door -

And so they threw out lots of bread

     But Quackers asked for more:

 

Are you ready?

 

‘Quack quack quack quack quack quack quack!'

     Yes, this is what she said - - - - -

And: ‘Quack quack quack,’ and ‘quack’ again -

     ‘I want some tasty bread.’

 

Well, everyone became annoyed

     But just what could they do?

And another thing they didn't like

     Was lots of Quackers' poo. 

 

Are you ready?

 

‘Quack quack quack quack quack quack quack!’

      Yes, this is what she said - - - - -

And: ‘Quack quack quack,’ and ‘quack’ again -

     ‘I want some tasty bread.’

 

A big black cat heard all this noise

     And peeped around the house,

And then he crept towards the duck,

     As quietly as a mouse.

 

But Quackers spotted this black cat

     And what did Quackers do?

She stopped her quacking right away

     And quickly off she flew.

 

But tell me where did Quackers fly?

     Perhaps it's what you fear!

For if she's come to visit you

      Then his is what you'll hear:

 

Are you ready?

 

‘Quack quack quack quack quack quack quack,’

     Yes, this is what she said - - - - -

And: ‘Quack quack quack,’ and ‘quack’ again -

     ‘I want some tasty bread.'

NOTE:  Children:  Please remember that bread is really junk food for ducks.  Yes, they like it as you might like some rubbish foods, but to eat it all the time will make them really ill.  Get Mummy or Daddy to buy some proper duck food from the supermarket or pet shop.  I buy lots for the ducks who come to my garden.  Quackers and her friends LOVE this.  Josie
