We went to the animal fair,
The birds and the beasts were there.
The big baboon by the light of the moon
Was combing his golden hair.
The monkey fell out of his bunk,
And slid down the elephant’s trunk.
The elephant sneezed – Achoo!
And fell on her knees,
And what became of the monkey;
Monkey, monkey, monkey, monkey?
