Down by the bay, where watermelons grow, back to my home, I dare not go. For if I do, my mother will say...

Did You Ever See A:
1. Whale with a polka-dotted tail?
2. Bear combing his hair?
3. Snail delivery the mail?
4. Bee with sunburned knees?
5. Fox throwing some rocks?
6. Gator working as a waiter?
7. Ghost making some toast?
8. Goose kissing a moose?
9. Rain falling from a plane?
10. Goat riding in a boat?
11. Cat acting like a bat?
12. Pug flying on a rug?
13. Snake eating some cake?
14. Shark playing in the park?
15. Sun out on a run?
16. Loon dancin' with the moon?

I'm glad you put the text in your comment. I always loved this nursery rhyme as a kid. Part of me says the rhyme doesn't need the text but maybe a lot of people wouldn't get it off the bat without the text. For what it's worth though, it's a very cute illustration all on it's own.

Part of me says the SHIRT doesn't need the text, sorry.

I always loved "llamas, wearing their pajamas"

Anyway, I agree with the typo on the snail one, but fixed, I know at least a dozen people who would buy this.

haha, "allow" eh?

I appreciate you pointing out my mistake, along with the 10 other people before you, and I'm sure Threadless does too. I really don't know how it occurred. Silly things happen at 3 in the morning sometimes I guess.

But don't you think it might be a bit petty to dismiss an effort of hours over a momentary unconscious slip? Typos are embarrassing for a moment, and then they get fixed.

My camp director has a sick, sick obsession with this song. I'll buy it. $5.
