At The Zoo Lyrics

by Simon And Garfunkel

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 now)

Somethin' 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 zoo keeper 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
At the zoo
At the zoo
...
