Going to the Zoo

Sung to the tune of "Skip to My Lou"
Works well if you have stuffed animals, pictures, or felt animal cut-outs in a bag.


Come along children, we're going to the zoo,
Come along children, we're going to the zoo,
Come along children, we're going to the zoo,
Going to the zoo today.

See the animals living in the zoo,
See the animals living in the zoo,
See the animals living in the zoo,
Living in the zoo today.

I see a monkey sitting in a tree,
I see a monkey sitting in a tree,
I see a monkey sitting in a tree
I see a monkey and it sees me.

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

I see a lion in a cage,
I see a lion in a cage,
I see a lion in a cage.
I see a lion that roars with rage.

I see a camel with a great big hump,
I see a camel with a great big hump,
I see a camel with a great big hump.
When he walks he goes "bump, bump."

I see a zebra, black and white,
I see a zebra, black and white,
I see a zebra, black and white.
Seeing the zebra is a sight.

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

We saw the animals living in the zoo,
We saw the animals living in the zoo,
We saw the animals living in the zoo.
Living in the zoo today.
