Zoo

Page history last edited by Jane McManus 2 years, 2 months ago

I went to visit the zoo one day
I saw an elephant along the way!
And what do you think I heard him say?
(elephant noise)

*Continue with other zoo animals   

 

Look there, Daddy, do you see,

There's a horse in striped pajamas?

No, that's not what it is at all,

That's an animal people call a zebra.

I see,

But it still looks like a horse in striped pajamas,

To me.

Look there, Daddy, do you see,

There's a bird in his tuxedo?

No, that's not  what it is at all,

That's an animal people call a penguin.

I see,

But it still looks like a bird in his tuxedo,

To me.

Look there, Daddy, do you see,

There's a cat with a fancy hair-do?

No, that's not what it is at all,

That's an animal people call a lion.

I see,

But it still looks like a cat with a fancy hair-do,

To me.

Look there, Daddy, do you see,

There's a bird with an umbrella?

No, that's not what it is at all,

That's an animal people call a peacock.

I see,

But it still looks like a bird with an umbrella,

To me.

          --Originally seen on Captain Kangaroo

 

At the zoo we saw a bear,

He had long, dark fuzzy hair.                  (Pretend to walk like a bear)

We saw a lion in a cage,

He was in an awful rage.                         (Act like an angry lion.)

We saw the big, long-necked giraffe,

And the silly monkeys made us laugh! (Everybody laugh.)

But my favorite animal at the zoo,

Is the elephant, how about you?            (Trumpet like an elephant.)

 

(Sing to: Take Me Out to the Ballgame)

Take me out for some good fun,
Take me out to the zoo.
Let me visit the tall giraffe,
I want to hear the hyenas laugh.
Now I love to visit the zoo,
I could stay there all day,
And watch birds, seals, rhinos, and hippos
As they play.

          --Preschool Education

 

What would you do if you lived in the zoo?

Would you prowl with the lion?
Would you growl with the bear?
Would you prance with the pony?
Would you hop with the hare?
Would you swing with the monkey?
Would you sing with the bird?
Would you romp with the tiger?
Would you chomp with the ape?
Would you stomp with the elephant?
Would you hiss with the snake?

 

If I were lost at the zoo,

I know exactly what I'd do.

I'd say, "Mr. Giraffe, look around this place--

"Do you see my Daddy's face?"

 

Never pet a porcupine,

Never poke a skunk,

Never grab a tiger's tooth

Or squeeze an elephant's trunk

Porcupines have prickly spines.

A skunk's scent smarts and stings.

Tiger's teeth are razor sharp.

Elephants remember things.

Never punch a crocodile,

Never pinch a rat,

Never whack a sleeping bear,

Or tickle a bob-tailed cat.

Crocodiles have mighty tails.

Rats have strong sharp claws.

Bears don't like to wake up fast.

Bob-tailed cats have wicked jaws.

 

The lions in the zoo go roar, roar, roar,

Roar, roar, roar.

Roar, roar, roar.

The lions in the zoo go roar, roar, roar,

All day long.

* The snakes in the zoo go hiss, hiss, hiss

*The hyenas in the zoo go ha, ha, ha

*The monkeys in the zoo go oo-ah-ah, oo-ah-ah, oo-ah-ah

 

(Sing to: SKIP TO MY LOU)

Come along, my children, we're going to the zoo,

Come along, my children, we're going to the zoo,

Come along, my children, we're going to the zoo,

Going to the zoo today.

*Let's see all the animals living in the zoo.

*I see a monkey sitting in a tree...I see a monkey and he sees me.

*I see an elephant big and gray...The big, gray elephant is eating hay.

*I see a lion in a cage...I see the lion roar with rage.

*I see a zebra black and white...Seeing the zebra is my favorite sight.

*I see a giraffe big and tall...He's not hard to see at all!

 

(Sing to: MY BONNIE LIES OVER THE OCEAN)
I came to the zoo to see lions,

Elephants, tigers, and bears!
I came to the zoo to see zebras.

I love all the animals there!
Lions, tigers, elephants, zebras, and bears, and bears!
Lions, tigers, elephants, zebras, and bears!
