At the Zoo

ŠPaul Simon, released on Bookends (Simon and Garfunkel) 1968

.

Someone told me

It's all happening at the zoo.

I do believe it,

I do believe it's true.

.

Mmmmm. Mmmmm. Whoooa. Mmmmm.

.

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 a crosstown bus

If it's raining or it's cold,

And the animals will love it

If you do.

If you do, now.

.

Something tells me

It's all happening at the zoo.

I do believe it,

I do believe it's true.

.

Mmmmm. Mmmmm. Whoooa. Mmmmm.

.

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 zookeeper 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.

At the zoo.

At the zoo.

At the zoo.

At the zoo.

At the zoo.
