Watson Mouse is busy; he's been taking many looks

At Sherlock Ferret's shelves which hold his wonderful Big Books

So Watson now  is singing a mousy little song

About these books, and what they hold, and though it's not so long

It tells you all about the things you need to know

About Big Books and what's inside, so here it is – let's go:
