Did You Know?
I don't know what it is about my figure and my style / Then when I walk around the passers by do smile / I lost myself in Kensington/about a week today / I asked a cabman my way home / And to me he did say / That's the way to the zoo / That's the way to the zoo / The monkey house is nearly full / But there's room enough for you / Take a bus to Regent's Park / Make haste before it shuts / Next Sunday I shall come and give you such a bunch of nuts
That's the Way to the Zoo
