Be wise like a serpent, An' think like a sage. Be wily like a tortoise An' marry life an' gold. Be humble like a lamb, An' gentle like a dove. All times love like love An' win God's an' man's favor. Be careful like a rabbit, Be brave like a lion, Be godly like a saint, An' swim safely via the world. Be steady as the sun, An' constant as the north star. Be studious like the ant That drags 't's food in winter An' goes in to feed in summer. Be clever as a cat An' catch your dream fish!
