There Was an Old Lady Who Lived In A Zoo

by Bruce Lansky
There was an old lady who lived in a zoo.
She never got bored, she had so much to do.

She climbed with the monkeys. She swam with the eels.
She talked to the parrots and played with the seals.

The old lady’s happy; she never gets blue.
And that’s why she’ll never move back to a shoe.
