The green‑eyed monster
Language: English 
James gave Elizabeth a Dodo,
He only offered one to me - 
A lovely lemon-coloured Dodo,
With the greenest eyes that you could wish to see.

Now it isn't that I'm doubting if James loves me,
I know that he would ask me out to tea,
But he did give Elizabeth a Dodo
While he only offered one to me.
