Away we go to the famous Zoo'
With Bertie, and Nellie, and Dick, and Sue. And we feel quite ready to jump for glee
When the wonderful birds and beasts we see. The pelican solemn with monster beak,
And the plump little penguin round and sleek, Have set us laughing—Ha, ha! Ho! ho\
And you'll laugh too, if you look below. To the monkey-house then we make our way,
Where the monkeys chatter, and climb, and play; At the snakes we peep, then onward stroll,
To talk to the parrots, and " scratch a poll." And after all that, there will still be time
On the patient elephant's back to climb.
