Joshua giraffe,
Was born in a zoo,
He lived there too.

For two years and a half,
He hasn't had a bath,
My mommy doesn't lick me,
Even when I'm sticky.

From candy floss, candy apples, popcorn,
Soft drinks jellybeans and gumdrops.

There must be something better,
Then living in this cage,
But I'm really not too sure,
Cause I'm rather short of age.

Joshua giraffe,
Was feeling kind of sad,
Things were going bad.

How little of life he'd had,
Wasting away with no room to play,
Trapped in a zoo with buffalo poo.

So he went next door to the elephant,
And asked him what to do.

I'm wasting away with no room to play,
I'm trapped in a zoo with buffalo poo.

The elephant was very old and gray,
And he had a huge balloon bottom.

And he said,
"Never fear Joshua, for a vision will appear".

And that night, a dream came to Joshua,
And Joshua saw animals like crazy monkeys,
And a whole pile of Hippypotostropasuses,
And flitty moths, moths size 12
And sleazy lizards,
And a tribe of nasty saviars.

But Joshua wasn't afraid
Because he sang himself this song:

Nothing can go wrong-o,
I'm in the Kongo,
Nothing can go wrong-o,
I'm in the Kongo,
Nothing can go wrong-o,
I'm in the Kongo,
Nothing can go wrong-o,
I'm in the Kongo,
Nothing can go wrong-o,
I'm in the Kongo,
Nothing can go wrong-o,
I'm in the Kongo.

Even in his dream he knew,
He'd never get away,
Not even for a day.

Then a peanut hit him on the nose.

Joshua Giraffe was back in the zoo,
What could he do,
Awakened from his dream,
He'd never be the same,
Because of what he'd seen.

He'd seen:
Alligators, crocodiles, tree sloth
Anacondas, cobras and,
Large winged moths,
Orangatangs, baboons eating grapes,
Gibbons, rude mandrills and just plain apes.

But Joshua was lucky,
He had some special friends,
And that day they went to the zoo,
But he was up tight so they waited till the night,
And they chopped his cage in two,
He discovered he could fly and,
He soared into the sky with them,
Wrapped around his neck,
And they haven't come back yet,
So if you see them get a net.

That's right, they haven't come back yet.
But when they do, they say they are
Going to free all the animals from their cages,
No matter how new or modern,
Even some pets, too.
So if on your way home today,
You happen to find....

A baboon basking in the balcony,
Or a lion licking a lemon in the lobby,
Or a python perched in the pantry,
A wildebeest in the W.C.,
With a turtle twirling in your tub,
Don't be afraid, just say your a friend,
Of their friend.

Joshua Giraffe, Joshua, Joshua
Joshua Giraffe, Joshua, Joshua
(Who hoo)
