Dear Zoo – children’s song based on the book by Rod Campbell

Lyrics:

I wrote to the zoo
Asked them to send me a pet
I really didn’t have a clue
What animal I’d get

They sent an elephant
Oh! They sent an elephant
But he was too big, and he was too fat
So I wrote to the zoo and I sent him back
Sent back the elephant

They sent a giraffe
Oh! They sent a giraffe
But he was too tall, even when was sat
So I wrote to the zoo and I sent him back
Sent back the giraffe

I don’t know what was on their mind
Sending out these animals to homes like mine
A scary snake and a frog that jumps
And a grumpy camel with a great big hump

They sent a lion
Oh! They sent a lion
But he was too fierce, and I thought he’d attack
So I wrote to the zoo and I sent him back
Sent back the lion

They sent a monkey
Oh! They sent a monkey
But he was too naughty, and he was too bad
So I wrote to the zoo and I sent him back
Sent back the monkey

I don’t know what was on their mind
Sending out these animals to homes like mine
I just wanted a normal pet
But they haven’t sent me the right one yet.

They sent a dog
Oh! They sent a dog
Yes, he is just perfect
I think I’ll keep him
So I wrote to the zoo
And I really thanked them
For the dog
