"Let me tll you about Monsieur Gator.
Monsieur Gator, he lives down in the boyou, oh yes he do.
He lives on the edge of the swamp, uh-huh.
He has big claws, big teeth, and a big appetite, for sure.
But Monsieur Gator, he has a big problem, too.
You see, Monsieur Gator, he's is getting old."

As a matter of fact, he is getting really slow in his old age.  So slow, that he can't catch any of the animals to eat.  So they tease Monsieur Gator all the time. Will Monsieur Gator come up with a way to get back at them?
