Hello everyone,
This is Max. I’m back!
And this is the tale
Of Zeke [Zeek] and Zack.


A Tale about Zeke and Zack

Play Audio

Yes, Zack and Zeke,
Zeke and Zack,
Two great friends,
A dog and a cat.

They took a trip,
This dog and this kitty.
Off they went
To see the big city.

Zeke was big
And Zack was little.
But whatever they bought
They split down the middle.

Play Audio

Zeke said, "I'm hungry.
How about you?"
So they bought a sandwich
And split it in two.

They bought 4 hot dogs
And this worked best:
Zeke took half
Zack took the rest.

They did some more wandering
All over town
Then bought 6 hamburgers
And swallowed them down.

They passed the zoo,
They saw a giraffe
They had 8 marshmallows
And each took half.

Yes, Zeke was big
And Zack was little
But whatever they had
They split down the middle.
