If girls can be cowgirls.
Cows can definitely be cowgirls.

So, Maravilla will find a ride at the circus.
“Elefante, let’s go smell las flores of the world?”
“Carro, let’s go smell las flores of the world?”

“I quit!” Maravilla moans.
“Jirafa, vamos smell las flores of the world?
Jirafa bends down her neck and says,
Maravilla borrows the clown’s rubber boots and TA-DA!
