WILLIE, THE WHISTLING GIRAFFE (Ruth Cleary Patterson / Rube Goldberg) Rosemary Clooney - 1951 The tall giraffe whose neck is long Can see for miles around But the poor thing has no voice at all So, he cannot make a sound Willie, the baby giraffe (Giraffe) Felt sad and he just couldn't laugh (Couldn't laugh) He kept trying to shout, but nothing came out Poor Willie, the baby giraffe (Poor Willie, the baby giraffe) Willie, the baby giraffe He doubled himself near in half When he wanted to sing, not a note could he bring >From his throat, poor baby giraffe (Giraffe, the poor little baby giraffe) But he swallowed a whistle one day Which soon made him happy and gay When he'd hide in the thistle and whistle and whistle The animals all would obey Now he's Willie the whistling giraffe We can all hear him whistle and laugh All the animals too call him King of the Zoo King Willie, the whistling giraffe (Instrumental Break) But he swallowed a whistle one day Which soon made him happy and gay When he'd hide in the thistle and whistle and whistle The animals all would obey (Obey) Now he's Willie the whistling giraffe We can all hear him whistle and laugh All the animals too call him King of the Zoo King Willie, the whistling giraffe (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - January 2005)
