The tiny ant leaves his tiny ant drops in the sand
And makes his home inside a rusty watering can
Occasionally, going out to look for bread and jam
He runs into a sparrow who hasn't eaten for a week
And later, quite contented, the sparrow cleans his beak
Failing to notice pussy cat has come out to take a leak
Our cat partakes of dinner when a sodden kangaroo
Emerges from the undergrowth and asks to use the loo
Kangaroos aren't usually dangerous, for that would never do
My goodness, will you look at all the animals queuing on the stairs
Look at the animals in the zoo, how would you like to be one?
They're waiting to use the lavatory
And putting chewing gum in each other's hair
Look at the animals, look at you, well, how would you like to free one?
Good gracious, will you look at all the animals playing with their tools?
Look at the animals, look at you, well, how would you like to queer one?
Flying from the chandeliers and treading in their elephantine stools
Look at the animals, two by two, aren't you glad to be one?
This kangaroo's a lunatic and his pouch is very full
Of pussy cats and penguins who can't fly as a rule
But then, neither could the pussy cat, he never went to school
The kangaroo gets nervous when confronted by the size
Of an elephant named Simon, who is always telling lies
He swears he wears green corduroys and can button up his fly
Presently, a fatter Simon's indigestion fails
He regurgitates the whole damn mess into an aluminum pail
And the tiny ant scuttles back inside his watering can
Occasionally going out to look for bread and jam
