Here comes another one, looking in at me

making funny faces, honey come and see

They don't have no food, I can't see a drink

glad for the bars or they'd take ours I think.

They're in all shapes and sizes, great big and small

with all kinds of faces, and honey that ain't all

Look at the way they are looking at me

glad for the bars, I'd hate to see them free.

I'm just a monkey hanging in my tree

and you look kinda scary looking in at me

I don't come to your house to look at you

so what are you all doing here at the zoo.

Don't get to close or I might bite

I know what your after and I will fight

You are such a fearsome brood

Go out and hunt for your own food.

Every day it's the same old thing

while I'm sitting here trying to sing

The animals come to stare in at us

they come by walking, they come by bus.

I'm just a monkey hanging in my tree

and you look kinda scary looking in at me

I don't come to your house to look at you

so what are you all doing here at the zoo.

I'm just an elephant, watch out for my feet

I might crush you, oh golly gee

You need to be home the whole lot of you

so what are you all doing here at the zoo.

I'm just a lion, laying here all alone

wondering why you animals have no home

sometimes there's many, sometimes there's few

so what are you all doing here at the zoo.

Here comes another one, looking in at me

making funny faces, honey come and see

They don't have no food, I can't see a drink

glad for the bars or they'd take ours I think.

They're in all shapes and sizes, great big and small

with all kinds of faces, and honey that ain't all

Look at the way they are looking at me

glad for the bars, I'd hate to see them free.
