A wonderful bird is the pelican by Dixon Lanier Merritt

A wonderful bird is the pelican,
His bill will hold more than his belican,
He can take in his beak
Enough food for a week
But I’m damned if I see how the helican!

A wonderful bird is the pelican Mike’s dad’s version

A strange bird, the pelican.
His bill can hold more than his belican.
He can hold in his beak
Enough fish for a week
And I don’t know how the helican.
