Zoo Keeper's Song mix1     

 

Kangaroos from Australia,
Llamas from Peru.
Mopping out the Penguins,
And feeding the Gnu.
Lemmings, Monkeys and Cockatoos,
There’s really far too much to do.

Oy, You, get out of my Zoo!

Scaly Armadillos,
A Duck Billed Platypus.
Harrumphing Hippopotami,
Making such a fuss.

Lemmings, Monkeys and Cockatoos,
There’s really far too much to do.

Oy, You, get out of my Zoo!     Finish second time

Squeaking Chinchillas upset the Gorillas.
Hedgehogs never share.
Alligators always run out of toothpaste,
Tigers lose their hair.
Dingos bark, Mosquitos bite,
I don’t know which is worse.
Whatever you do please don’t fall ill,
‘Cos the Shark thinks it’s a Nurse!
