There Once Was a Lion Named Andy-Dandy

A Kids Story

There Once Was a Lion Named Andy-Dandy

There once was a lion named Andy-Dandy

He was very good at working with tools

He was a Handy-Andy-Dandy Lion

There once was a lion named Andy-Dandy

He was a little tipsy so he was quite sandy from falling

He was a Sandy-Handy-Andy-Dandy Lion

There once was a lion named Andy-Dandy

He loved licking lots of lollipops

He was a Candy-Sandy-Handy-Andy-Dandy Lion

There once was a lion named Andy-Dandy

He never followed Plan A, but always Plan B

He was a Plan B-Candy-Sandy-Handy-Andy-Dandy Lion

There once was a lion named Andy-Dandy

He loved to dance and dress up in fancy clothes

He was a Dancy-Fancy-Plan B-Candy-Sandy-Handy-Andy-Dandy Lion

There once was a lion named Andy-Dandy

He liked saving people because local law enforcement wasn't enough

He was a Vigilante-Dancy-Fancy-Plan B-Candy-Sandy-Handy-Andy-Dandy Lion

One day the Vigilante-Dancy-Fancy-Plan B-Candy-Sandy-Handy-Andy-Dancy Lion woke up and he felt a little off...

He looked outside and noticed that there was no one to save. That day he didn't feel much like a Vigilante...

He also noticed that all his fancy clothes were dirty so he couldn't wear them. That day he didn't feel very Dancy-Fancy...

He felt pretty strange that day because all he wanted to do was follow Plan A. That day he did not feel like following Plan B...

He looked on the counter and noticed that he was all out of lollipops! That day he was quite upset because he had no Candy...

As he was walking around, he noticed that he was not tipsy at all; he could walk perfectly straight. That day he didn't fall down and he wasn't Sandy...

He was trying to fix his car, but couldn't quite figure it out. That day he was not very Handy...

That day...

He was just a lion named Andy-Dandy
