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

Well, 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

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 zoo keeper is very fond of rum

Zebras are reactionaries
Antelopes are missionaries
Pigeons plot in secrecy
Hamsters turn on frequently

What a gas, you gotta come and see
At the zoo, at the zoo, at the zoo
