THE ZOO SONG lyrics

This song is on YouTube.

This song is tremendous fun when children act out the antics!  

P1290053

If I were an ELEPHANT in the zoo…

What would I do? What would I do?

I’d wave my trunk to get a peanut from you…

If I were an elephant in the zoo!

If I were a LION in the zoo…

What would I do? What would I do?

I’d roar and roar and roar some more, too!

If I were a lion in the zoo!

If I were a MONKEY in the zoo…

What would I do? What would I do?

I’d swing in the trees and make faces at you…

If I were a monkey in the zoo!

But I’m not an animal, I’m a CHILD

I can have fun but I’m not wild!

I wave to the critters making faces, too,

When I visit the animals in the zoo!

If I were a KANGAROO in the zoo…

What would I do? What would I do?

I’d jump and jump and jump some more, too.

If I were a kangaroo in the zoo!

If I were a FLAMINGO in the zoo…

What would I do? What would I do?

I’d stand on one leg but walk on two!

If I were a flamingo in the zoo!

If I were a GORILLA in the zoo…

What would I do? What would I do?

I’d pound on my chest grunting “Ugh! Ugh! Ooo!”

If I were a gorilla in the zoo!

But I’m not an animal, I’m a CHILD

I can have fun but I’m not wild!

I wave to the critters making faces, too,

When I visit the animals in the zoo!

If I were an ELEPHANT IN the zoo…

What would I do? What would I do?

I’d wave my trunk “bye-bye!” to you…

If I were an elephant in the zoo!

ADDITIONAL VERSE (Not on CD but fun to sing to the same melody!)

If I were a peacock at the zoo

What would I do?

What would I do?

I’d fan out my feathers of emerald and blue

If I were a peacock in the zoo!
