At the Zoo - Simon & Garfunkel Lyrics

[Intro]
Someone told me
It's all happening at the zoo
I do believe it
I do believe it's true

[Verse 1]
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 the crosstown bus
If it's raining or it's cold
And the animals will love it
If you do
If you do now

[Bridge]
Something tells me
It's all happening at the zoo
I do believe it
I do believe it's true

[Verse 2]
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
