Zoological Gardens

Traditional. Arrangement The Black Family

Chorus

Thunder and lightening is no lark
When Dublin city is on the dark
If you've not any money, go up to the park
And view the Zoological Gardens

Last Sunday night we had no dough
So we took the mot up to see the Zoo
We saw the lions and the kangaroos
Up in the Zoological Gardens

Chorus

So we went up there be' Castleknock
Says the mot to me sure we'll court by the lock
I knew she was one of the rare oul' stock
Up by the Zoological Gardens

Chorus

Says the mot to me now me dear friend Jack
Sure I'd love a ride on the elephant's back
If you don't get moving you'll get such a crack
Up in the Zoological Gardens

Chorus

We went out there on our honeymoon
Says the mot to me if you don't come soon
I'll have to get in with the hairy baboon
Inside the Zoological Gardens
