Hi, Carol:

I seem to recall that Wayne Sharpe's ('55) family operated this business.

- Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 12/01/07
I thought that myself, Joe - Thanks!

You are on your own, here.

I was a Newmarket boy; never heard of it.

Talk to the Animals

Music and Lyrics by Leslie Bricusse for Dr. Doolittle : The Musical

If we could talk to the animals, just imagine it
Chatting to a chimp in chimpanzee
Imagine talking to a tiger, chatting to a cheetah
What a neat achievement that would be.

If we could talk to the animals, learn their languages
Maybe take an animal degree.
We'd study elephant and eagle, buffalo and beagle,
Alligator, guinea pig, and flea.

We would converse in polar bear and python,
And we could curse in fluent kangaroo.
If people asked us, can you speak in rhinoceros,
We'd say, "Of courserous, can't you?"

If we could talk to the animals, learn their languages
Think of all the things we could discuss
If we could walk with the animals, talk with the animals,
Grunt and squeak and squawk with the animals,
And they could squeak and squawk and speak and talk to us.
