Song/Poem: "Animal Fair"

We went to the animal fair,

The birds and the beasts were there.

The old baboon by the light of the moon,

Was combing his auburn hair.

The monkey fell out of his bunk,

And slid down the elephant's trunk.

The elephant sneezed and fell to his knees,

And what became of the monkey?

 

We went to the animal fair,

The birds and the beasts were there.

The chimpanzee was pouring some tea,

For the python and the polar bear.

The monkey's new clothes got torn,

As he swung from the rhino's horn.

The rhino charged and stomped his feet hard,

And what became of the monkey?

 

We went to the animal fair,

The birds and the beasts were there.

The flamingo put on a great show,

As it high-dived through the air.

The monkey let go of his chain,

And fell in the lion's mane.

The lion felt sore, and let out a roar,

And what became of the monkey?
