Last Sunday night we had no dough
So I took the mot up to see the zoo
We saw the lions and the kangaroos
Inside the Zoological Gardens.

Well we went out there by Castlenock
Said the mot to me ‘Sure we court the Lough’
Then I knew she was one of the rare old stock
Inside the Zoological Gardens.

Said the mot to me ‘My dear friend Jack
Sure, I’d like a ride on the elephant’s back’
‘If you don’t get out of that I’ll giove you such a crack
Inside the Zoological Gardens’.

We went out there on our honeymoon
Said the mot to me ‘If you don’t come soon
I’ll have to sleep with the hairy baboon
Inside the Zoological Gardens’.
