1. I went to the animal fair,
The birds and the beasts were there,
The big baboon by the light of the moon
Was combing his auburn hair
2. The monkey fell out of his bunk
And sat on the elephant’s trunk
The elephant sneezed and went down on his knees
And that was the end of the monk…
The monk… the monk… the monk…
