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 cross-town bus If it's rainning or it's cold. And the animals will love it if you do. Something tells me it's all happing at the zoo. I do believe it, I do believe it's true. The monkeys stand for honesty. Giraffes are insincere. The elephants are kindly but they're dumb. Orangutangs are skiptical of changes in their cages And the zookeeper is they fond of rum. Zebras are reactionaries, Anthelopes are missionaries. Pidgeons plot in secrecy And hamsters turn on frequently. What a gas you got to come and see At the zoo. At the zoo. At the zoo.
