Penguins are half black and penguins are half white
there’s nothing about them that would cause a fright.
It looks pretty nifty to be fifty-fifty!
They make us laugh, they make us giggle
it must be the way they seem to wiggle.
They swim in the water, they waddle on ice
they really seem to be very nice!
Next time you see a penguin with orange feet
tell him you know that he’s really neat!
