Down at the zoo
There isn’t any noise
It’s much too early
For girls and boys
The monkeys have a plan
But you mustn’t say a word
They’re going to do it quietly
So they can’t be heard
They’re sawing through the box
They’re climbing out the cage
They’re tiptoeing past the zoo-keeper
They’re running out the gates

Because today the monkeys are breaking out the zoo
Because today the monkeys are breaking out the zoo

The zoo-keeper’s sleeping
He hasn’t heard a thing
All of the monkeys
Escaping
When he wakes up
He’s going to get a shock
“Oh dear!”
He’s lost all the monkeys
“Where’s the monkeys?!”
And they won’t come back
They’re skipping down the street
They’re beating on their chests
They’re laughing and screeching
“HAHAHAHAEHEEEEHEEHEEHEHAHAHAH!”
They’re scratching their heads

Because today the monkeys are breaking out the zoo
Because today the monkeys are breaking out the zoo
Because today the monkeys are breaking out the zoo
Because today the monkeys are breaking out the zoo
Because today the monkeys are breaking out the zoo

If you plan to go
To the zoo today
You won’t see monkeys
Because they’ve gone away
They’re heading for the mountains
They’re heading for the trees
They’re happy just to run around
And they’re happy to be free
Some are hailing taxis
Some are riding bikes
Some are swimming rivers
Some are flying kites
Now they’re jumping
And swinging from the trees
Rolling on the floor
And picking out the fleas

Because today the monkeys have broken out the zoo
Because today the monkeys are breaking out the zoo
Because today the monkeys are breaking out the zoo
Because today the monkeys are breaking out the zoo
Because today the monkeys are breaking out the zoo
Because today the monkeys are breaking out the zoo
Because today the monkeys have broken out the zoo
Because today the monkeys are breaking out the zoo
Because today the monkeys are breaking out the zoo
Because today the monkeys are breaking out the zoo
Because today the monkeys are breaking out the zoo
Because today the monkeys are breaking out the zoo
Because today the monkeys are breaking out the zoo
