We went to the zoo before it was dark

We went to the zoo before it was dark
A mandril was ripping bark off a tree
The closing announcement made the lemurs bark <—— This was the first
line he picked because it was his favorite event

The tigers were sleeping at the park
The bobcat’s tail twitched with glee
We went to the zoo before it was dark

The hippo snorting was a lark
The big ostrich was on an eating spree
The closing announcement made the lemurs bark

The bear digging made a mark
The whistling duck went “weeeeee”
We went to the zoo before it was dark

We didn’t see a shark
The peacock didn’t flee
The closing announcement made the lemurs bark

It made them wake with a spark
“We were asleep” was their plea
We went to the zoo before it was dark
The closing announcement made the lemurs bark
