no, not more, just as much

what a wondrous bird is the pelican
can hold as much in his beak as his belly can
can hold enough in his beak
to last him all week
and I dont see how in the heck he can

that's 'pigeon' english :cute: not to mention it doesn't scan

The version i know is:

"A wonderful bird is a Pelican,
Whose beak can hold more than his belly can.
Be it crabs, clams, or fish, It will hold all you wish.
But damned if I see how the hell he can!"
