At the Zoo

There are lions and roaring tigers,
And enormous camels and things,
There are biffalo-buffalo-bisons,
And a great big bear with wings.
There’s a sort of a tiny potamus,
And a tiny nosserus too –
But I gave buns to the elephant
When I went down to the Zoo!

There are badgers and bidgers and bodgers,
And a Super-in-tendent’s House,
There are masses of goats, and a Polar,
And different kinds of mouse,
And I think there’s a sort of a something
Which is called a wallaboo –
But I gave buns to the elephant
When I went down to the Zoo!

If you try to talk to the bison,
He never quite understands;
You can’t shake hands with a mingo –
He doesn’t like shaking hands.
And lions and roaring tigers
Hate saying, “How do you do?” –
But I give buns to the elephant
When I go down to the Zoo!
