Now wouldn’t it be funny by Pixie O’Harris

Standard

Now, wouldn’t it be funny

If the creatures in the Zoo,

Were all let out to walk about

And look at me and you?

 

And wouldn’t it be funny

If they put us in the cages,

And Kangaroos and Cockatoos

Came guessing at our ages.

 

And wouldn’t it be funny if the Hip-O-Potamus

Said, “Don’t go near, I really fear

They’re very dangerous.”
