Down on a tiny island off the coast of Africa
Live two best friends,one is a snail,the other
You might think it strange that a snail and a
tortoise to be friends.
But they have a lot in common,they both have
They are both really slow.
And they both have the same liquid breakfast
a serving of up&go.
It doesn’t seem to be working.
I think their get up&go got up and went a long
But the snail and the tortoise don’t care
So they move slow,who said life was a race
They just move at a nice steady pace.
Another thing they have in common is the
same nickname Speedy.
Speedy the snail,leaves a trail wherever
So it is easy for Speedy the tortoise to keep
track of his friend.
So if Speedy the snail,goes around a bend
his trail means he is always visible.
But this means he is vunderable to an attack
from the air.
Eagles,seagulls,all sorts of birds and reptiles
love to eat snails.
They like them raw straight from the shell.
The life of a snail can sometimes be a living
That is where Speedy the tortoise comes into
Whenever Speedy the snail shouts that he is
Speedy the tortoise is there on the double
Well as fast as he can,anyway
Speedy the tortoise is rather quiet and shy.
And he thinks now is the time that he came
out of his shell haha.
He has meet a female tortoise named Mary.
They are going out tomorrow night.
But meanwhile back in the woods,Speedy
the snail is in trouble
Because a man in a escargot van,is on the
He is looking for fat juicy snails.
So if you give him half a chance,he will catch
Speedy the snail and ship him off to France
Where he will disappesr down someones
No way in hell does Speedy want to get
on that boat.
So Speedy the snail is in hiding,deep inside
a hollow log.
But what Speedy doesn’t know is that the
man in the van,has got himself a sniffer dog
As the old saying goes
You can run but you cant hide.
But you can escape if you have Speedy the
tortoise on your side.
Speedy the tortoise has a plan,he knows how
to beat the man in the van.
Speedy the tortoise has built himself a raft
So he and Speedy the snail can float down
The sniffer dogs don’t stand a chance
As the two Speedys lead them on a merry
The dogs are running around barking
The Speedys jump up and down
laughing and clapping
So the two Speedys,make good their
And sail all the way down with the tide.
They finally find land,and go and hide
They are not taking any chances,and they
hide out for a week
Living in a shack with a stove and a roof
Speedy the tortoise didn’t get to go on his
He is hoping that when he gets back,Mary
will give him another chance
A few weeks later they finally get home
Speedy the snail is reading his mail.
He got a letter from a pen pal
Who wants to know when are they going
to meet face to face
Speedys pen pals name is Lucy,who wants
She wants friendship,maybe more.
So the two Speedys decide to go on a
They go to a fancy restaurant,and get
the best table.
Lucy andMary seem to get along just fine
plenty of jokes and laughs,as they wine
Afterwards they decide to go back to the woods
They to go back to being just a snail and a
And the two girls come along.
The two two Speedys are happy
cause they are back where they belong
