Corky the cheetah is number 84
He came knock knocking upon my door.
When he looked through the window,
We were hiding on the floor.

We were scared, you see,
Of his sharp and shiny teeth.
So we dived on the carpet
And hid under our seat.

We then found out
He was a cute and kindly cat
Plays football with the kids
In Douglas every Sat.

So if you see Corky
He won't eat you alive
Don't be scared of him
Just give him a high five.
