The itchy lion

Once upon a time so the story goes
There lived a lion with an itchy nose
He scratched all night and he scratched all day
Just trying to make it go away
.
He scratched with his paw and he scratched with his knee
He scratched on the floor and he scratched on a tree
He made it drier and he made it wetter
But nothing seemed to make it better
.
One day he asked an owl’s advice
“Just close your eyes and turn round twice”
Said owl “then sneeze and I am sure
It won’t be itchy anymore”
.
When he had done this owl said “well,
Is it better? Can you tell?”
But lion growled and shook his head
“I’ve got an itchy ear instead!”
. .
Once upon a time not far from here
There lived a lion with an itchy  ear
He scratched all night and he scratched all day
Just trying to make it go away
.
He scratched with his paw and he scratched with his knee
He scratched on the floor and he scratched on a tree
He made it drier and he made it wetter
But nothing seemed to make it better
.
One day he asked an owl’s advice
“Just close your eyes and turn round twice”
Said owl “then sneeze and I am sure
It won’t be itchy anymore”
.
When he had done this owl said “well,
Is it better? Can you tell?”
But lion growled and shook his head
“I’ve got an itchy toe instead!”

Once upon a time so the story goes
There lived a lion with an itchy toe
He scratched all night and he scratched all day
Just trying to make it go away
.
He scratched with his paw and he scratched with his knee
He scratched on the floor and he scratched on a tree
He made it drier and he made it wetter
But nothing seemed to make it better
.
One day he asked an owl’s advice
“Just close your eyes and turn round twice”
Said owl “then sneeze and I am sure
It won’t be itchy anymore”
.
When he had done this owl said “well,
Is it better? Can you tell?”
But lion growled and shook his head
“I’ve got an itchy mane instead!”
. .
Once upon a time not far away
There lived a lion with an itchy mane
He scratched all night and he scratched all day
Just trying to make it go away
.
He scratched with his paw and he scratched with his knee
He scratched on the floor and he scratched on a tree
He made it drier and he made it wetter
But nothing seemed to make it better
.
One day he asked an owl’s advice
“Just close your eyes and turn round twice”
Said owl “then sneeze and I am sure
It won’t be itchy anymore”
.
When he had done this owl said “well,
Is it better? Can you tell?”
But lion growled and cried in pain
“I’ve got an itchy nose again!”
