we're going to the zoo, zoo, zoo... how about you, you, you... you can come too, too, too.... 'cos we're going to the zoo, zoo, zoo !!!
that's my fave childhood zoo song.
and my fave childhood zoo joke is:
Dad: i hope you're wearing your hat.
Dad: so we don't get you confused with the monkeys and leave you at the zoo.
(cue: laugh now)
of course, we all *loved* the monkeys: we even went back for a second visit !!! and we made all the "oooo ooooo eeeeee eeeeeeeee" noises and chose our favourite monkey etc...
(isn't he beautiful?? i finally worked out the *camera zoom* today - oh, alright, S9 told me - after two years of "hang on, i need to move closer" photos. at least i'm admitting that.)
(yes, we played "in my grandmother's suitcase" and all sorts of other ABC memory-games on the one-and-a-half hour car trip home!!)
there's something about the African animals which make my heart sing.
