Sweet Zoo - Barbra Streisand
I dreamed last night that
I was a tiger, in the jungle
But I was a big bad tiger, for a lion killed me
And then I was an elephant, a great big elephant
There wasn?t anything I couldn?t do
Till they caught and they brought me to a zoo
So I dreamed I was an alligator
With a great big mouth
And four very funny little legs
Which are no good for dancing
So, then I was a dancing bear
And I was doing my dancing where the bears dance
But I was sneezing,
?Cause I was a dancing polar bear
And it was freezing
Then I dreamed I was a giraffe
I looked so ridiculous I wanted to laugh
But giraffes can?t talk, so how can they laugh?
Who ever saw a giraffe laugh?
Then I woke up
And I was not a tiger, or and elephant,
I was not an alligator.
-Crocodile? -No, alligator!
I was not a dancing bear or a tall giraffe
I was only me...
And that?s the way I?ll be!
Oh, that?s the way I?ll be
I enjoy being an oyster!
