At the Zoo

Posted on 4:38 AM by jr cline | 0 comments


Someone told me
It's all happening at the zoo.
I do believe it,
I do believe it's true.


 It's a light and tumble journey
From the East Side to the park;
Just a fine and fancy ramble
To the zoo.


But you can take the crosstown bus
If it's raining or it's cold,
And the animals will love it
If you do.
If you do.


Something tells me
It's all happening at the zoo.
I do believe it,
I do believe it's true.


The monkeys stand for honesty,
Giraffes are insincere,
And the elephants are kindly but
They're dumb.
Orangutans are skeptical
Of changes in their cages,
And the zookeeper is very fond of rum.


Zebras are reactionaries,
Antelopes are missionaries,
Pigeons plot in secrecy,
And hamsters turn on frequently.
What a gas! You gotta come and see
At the zoo.
