when earth itself was very young

giraffes were known to sing
their voices were a pure delight
what joy their songs would bring
their necks and legs were very short
they looked more like a cow
today they look quite differently
i'm here to tell you how
the angels up in heaven
had a choir that was quite good
but never the perfection
that they always thought it should
one day while leaning towards the earth
they heard the sweet giraffe
and thought they'd make a plea to him
perhaps on God's behalf
"hello grand creature, down below
we love your thrilling voice
we'd love to have you sing up here
if that would be your choice"
giraffes are very curious
he raised his head up high
and stretched his neck repeatedly
so he could reach the sky
he legs extended up as well
he craned with all his might
and angels worked some magic in
to help him with his height
and nearer then to heaven
the giraffe was heard quite well
he joined in sacred hymns with them
and boy, it sounded swell
the angels loved his voice so much
a plan for him they hatched
and as the creature sang his song
his voice they deftly snatched
and that is why giraffes today
have legs and necks so tall
and sadly why the noble beasts
don't have a voice at all
