JOSHUA GIRAFFE Raffi Joshua Giraffe was born in a zoo He lived there,too,for two years And a half he hasn't had a bath My mommy doesn't lick me Even when I'm sticky from Candy floss,candy apples,popcorn, Soft drinks,jelly beans and gumdrops And there must be something better Than living in this cage But I'm really not to sure Because I'm really short of age. Joshua Giraffe was feeling kind of sad Things were going bad How little of life he had Wasting away with no room to play Trapped in a zoo with buffalo,too. So he went next door to the elephant And asked him what to do I'm wasting away with no room to play I'm trapped in a zoom with buffalo,too. The elephant was very old and gray And he had a huge balloon bottom He said, Never fear Joshua, A vision will appear. That night a dream came to Joshua and Joshua saw animals,like crazy monkeys And a whole pile of Hippypotostropasuses And flitty moths,moths size 12 And sleazy lizards and a tribe of nasty saviars But Joshua wasn't afraid Because he sang himself this song Nothing can go wrong-o I'm in the Kongo Nothing can go wrong-o I'm in the Kongo Nothing can go wrong-o I'm in the Kongo Nothing can go wrong-o I'm in the Kongo Nothing can go wrong-o I'm in the Kongo Nothing can go wrong-o I'm in the Kongo Even in his dream he knew He'd never get away, Not even for a day Then a peanut hit him on the nose Joshua Giraffe was back in the zoo. What could he do Awakened from his dream He'd never be the same Because of what he'd seen He'd seen: Alligators,crocodiles,tree sloth Anacondas,cobras and Large winged moths Orangatangs,baboons eating grapes Gibbons,rude mandrills and just plain apes. But Joshua was lucky He had some special friends And that day they went to the zoo But he was up tight so they waited till the night And they chopped his cage in two He discovered he could fly and He soared into the sky with them Wrapped around his neck And they haven't come back yet So if you see them get a net. That's right,they haven't come back yet. But when they do,they say they are Going to free all the animals from their cages No matter how new or modern Even some pets,too. So if on your way home today You happen to find.... A baboon basking in the balcony Or a lion licking a lemon in the lobby Or a python perched in the pantry A wildebeest in the W.C. With a turtle twirling in your tub, Don't be afraid,just say your a friend Of their friend. Joshua Giraffe,Joshua,Joshua Joshua Giraffe,Joshua,Joshua (woo hoo) Repeat nine times fading.
