No. 25 - Song - Lally - "Bedtime at the Zoo."
Lyrics by Percy Greenbank and Leslie Mayne

MIDI File

Lally: When the shades of night are softly creepin',
Up across the gardens at the Zoo,
Children, would you like to take a peep in
At the sleepy Bear and Kangaroo?
Hush'd is all the snarling and the growling,
Now the Leopard hangs his weary head,
Then the tawny Tiger stops his prowling,
Ev'ry beast is thinking of his bed.
Good-night, Mister Elephant,
Tiger cease your play,
Lie down and you're sure to dream
That you're roaming in the jungle far away.
Sleep well, Miss Ourang-Outang;
Good-night, Kangaroo!
When another day is breaking
You will all of you be waking
In the Zoo, in the Zoo!
   
  Faint and fainter still the lion's roar is
When they doze and dream the same as us;
And you hear the Panther whisper stories
To the lazy Hippopotamus,
Drowsily the polar bear is grumbling,
Hear the parrots talking in their sleep,
While the monkeys off their perches tumbling
One by one lie huddled in a heap.
Good-night, Mister Elephant,
Tiger cease your play,
Lie down and you're sure to dream
That you're roaming in the jungle far away.
Sleep well, Miss Ourang-Outang;
Good-night, Kangaroo!
When another day is breaking
You will all of you be waking
In the Zoo, in the Zoo!
