The guy who escaped from the zoo

(Tune = The daring young man on the flying trapeze)

When he knocked at my window I saw with surprise
A grief-stricken face with astonishing eyes
I hoped 'twas a peeper but the cops put me wise
He was only a bird from the zoo
Now the bird that alarmed me was flightless
With wings that do nothing but flap
But since I am very near sightless
I thought him a good-looking chap

He runs through the town with the greatest of speed
On the longest of legs, which are multiple-kneed
But he isn't quite bright, so he's easily treed
The guy who escaped from the zoo.

He gazed at my window so sad and forlorn
A heartbroken fellow, so I would have sworn
Alone in this wide world to wander and mourn
With a nose that looked more like a horn
