I was in deepest Africa, yes I was. Yes I was
I was in deepest Africa.
1. Teaching elephants to dance!
Don’t look askance for elephants love to sing and dance
In their fancy hot pants!
I was in deepest Africa teaching elephants to dance!
2. Watching a toucan can-can
When in the Sudan a toucan can can-can better than
Any two toucans can
I was in deepest Africa watching a toucan can-can.
3. Teaching a gnu to gnit
Each stitch that gnu gnit
He would throw a fit like a gnu gnit wit!
I was in deepest Africa teaching a gnu to gnit.
Gnit one pearl two, gnit one pearl two
4. Teaching a baboon to croon
Each tune that baboon would croon
Made the she baboon loonier than moon goons
I was in deepest Africa teaching a baboon to croon
5. Teaching hippopotami . . . to fly
Don’t sigh, look up in the sky
Hippopotomi will be flying by
I was in deepest Africa teaching hippopotami to fly!
