LYRICS

 
‘Newt, oh newt, you are too cute!’
 
Emoted the coot to the too-cute newt,
 
‘With your frilly back and your shiny suit
  and your spotted skin so unhirsute!’
 
‘Too cute?!’ roared the newt to the
  unastute coot. ‘With all this careless
  talk of cute you bring me into
  disrepute, for newts aren’t cute:
  we’re kings of the pond, lions of the
  duckweed, dragons of the water;
  albeit, it’s true,’ — he paused — ‘minute.’
