A Book for Kids
Now, a man in Oodnadatta
He grew fat, and he grew fatter,
   Though he hardly had a thing to eat for dinner;
While a man in Booboorowie
Often sat and wondered how he
   Could prevent himself from growing any thinner.

So the man from Oodnadatta He came down to Booboorowie, Where he rapidly grew flatter; And the folk will tell you how he Urged the man from Booboorowie To go up to Oodnadatta - Where he lived awhile, and now he Is considerably fatter.
