a cat we fondly hail,
For we can tell the temperature
By looking at its tail.
Its tail is clearly accurate,
As we have often found,
And so the Panthermometer
is nice to have around.
Here comes a Panthermometer,
a feline we adore.
It's always set to tell us
What the weather has in store.
It tells us when we're sweltering,
And when we're apt to freeze -
We praise the Panthermometer
That helps us by degrees.
