“First I gave life to a spider, then I gave life to a fly; After a bit couldn't find it, although I think I know why. Next I gave life to a goldfish, then I gave life to a toad; Then I gave life to a lizard, who helped the toad cross the road. Next I gave life to a tadpole, then I gave life to a frog; Then I gave life to a dog-fish, and it barked just like a dog. Now I'll give life to a human, now I'll give life to a man! Pity it's proving so tricky, but I'll succeed if I can."
