Carnival of the Animals, narrated by Johnny Morris

I really like "Carnival of the Animals", and played bass in it once in my youth. This is a good performance of it, and Johnny Morris (former presenter of Animal magic on BBC tv) recites a little rhyme at the start of each piece of music. He does a decent job, but the rhymes are kinda crap and are spoiling my enjoyment of the music (plus he recites over "Fishes", which is one of my favourite pieces). Ogden Nash wrote a set of rhymes for this too, and they're much better - must search out a version with his rhymes on it instead
