Let us go to the zoo and there what shall we see?
Well now put on your coat and then come, follow me . . . .
Look an elephant! Oh!! What a very large size!
And, of course, people know that an elephant’s wise!
The camel works hard in the harsh desert heat
Walking calmly through sand on his sure-footed feet -
But the polar bear’s world is so cold and remote
And he’s glad nature gave him his thick white fur coat.
Chimpanzees are quite clever - like you and like me -
But would you swap your life for a life in a tree?
Here are penguins. Oh look! You can clearly see three.
They are birds who’re at home on the land and the sea!
With a very long neck and head high in that tree,
The giraffe is an animal we all want to see.
There are many more animals who'd like to see you
When you go with your family for a day at the zoo.
