Songs for Tots We're Going to the Zoo
(sung to Farmer in the Dell)

We're going to the zoo, we're going to the zoo,
Hi-ho-the-derry-o, we're going to the zoo.

We'll see the chimpanzees, swinging from the trees,
Hi-ho-the-derry-o, swinging from the trees.

We'll see the kangaroos, hopping two by two,
Hi-ho-the-derry-o, hopping two by two.

We'll see the big brown bears, climbing up some stairs,
Hi-ho-the-derry-o, climbing up some stairs.

We'll see the long long snakes, sliding with their mates,
Hi-ho-the-derry-o, sliding with their mates.

We'll see the elephants, looking so intense,
Hi-ho-the-derry-o, looking so intense.

Then we'll wave goodbye, then we'll wave goodbye,
We had some fun but now we're done,
So we'll wave goodbye.
