DEEPEST AFRICA
As recorded by The Chenille Sisters on “Teaching Hippopotami to Fly!” (1996).

I was in deepest Africa; yes, I was; yes, I was.
I was in deepest Africa, 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.

I was in deepest Africa; yes, I was; yes, I was.
I was in deepest Africa, 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.

I was in deepest Africa; yes, I was; yes, I was.
I was in deepest Africa, teaching a g-nu to k-nit.
Each stitch that g-nu k-nit,
He would throw a fit like a g-nu k-nitwit.
I was in deepest Africa, teaching a g-nu to k-nit.

Knit one, purl two; knit one, purl two.

I was in deepest Africa; yes, I was; yes, I was.
I was in deepest Africa, teaching a baboon to croon.
Each tune that baboon would croon
Made the she-baboon loonier than moon goon.
I was in deepest Africa, teaching a baboon to croon.

I was in deepest Africa; yes, I was; yes, I was.
I was in deepest Africa, teaching hippopotami to fly.
Don’t sigh; look up in the sky.
Hippopotami will be flying by.
I was in deepest Africa, teaching hippopotami to fly.
