I’m going, I’m going on a safari

Driving around in my big lorry

Jungle animals I shall see

As they live, quite naturally,
Not behind the cages, tied

Lions, elephants, zebras, birds.
Moving together in their herds.
I’ll shoot them,
but with a camera
They’ll think “oh, he’s
a nice fella”.

So we’ll be friends and
long long after
I’m gone, you’ll hear our laughter.
