When the Tinoceras snooped about,
And the Pterodactyl flapped its wings,
When the Brontops with the warty snout
Noseyed around for herbs and things,
Would I have bothered myself o’ermuch
About divine afflatus and such?

A naughty little bold fish, that distains chemise of robe.

And when my toilet I prepare, I'd rather be alone.
