Keeper of the London Zoo

My father was the keeper of the London Zoo
And he slept one night with a kangaroo
From this union there came three
A wallaby and a wombat and the other was me

cho:  The monkeys chatter the whole night through
      Oh, for the life in the London Zoo

I went to a carnival one fine night
Went into a tent to see a fight
And as the bell went ting a ling
I saw my mother standing in the ring

"What has become of my children three?"
My mother then she asked of me
"One was employed as a pogo stick
And the other was given a bishopric."

Her chin connected with a flashing right
When I looked again she was out like a light
I heard her mutter as she came to
"To hell with the keeper of the London Zoo."
