Zoo Train

 


Zoo Train Lyrics


When I ride the zoo train down the track

I hear roosters crow and ducks that quack
I see camels, bears and ostrich too
All aboard the train at the zoo

Here comes the zoo train down the track
Here comes the train, clickity clack
The whistle blows with a loud choo choo
All aboard the train at the zoo

I see elephants big, gray and strong
Giraffes with necks that are really long
Zebras with stripes, black and white
Signs that say the bears may bite

Here comes the zoo train down the track
Here comes the train clickity clack
The whistle blows with a loud choo choo
All aboard the train at the zoo
All aboard the train at the zoo
All aboard the train at the zoo
