The Animal Fair | Lyrics

from the MMF Songbook




The Animal Fair is a minstrel song.


Lyrics for ‘The Animal Fair’

I went to the animal fair,
The birds and the beasts were there,
The big baboon by the light of the moon
Was combing his auburn hair,
The monkey bumped the skunk,
And sat on the elephant's trunk;
The elephant sneezed and fell to his knees,
And that was the end of the monk,
The monk, the monk, the monk,
The monk, the monk, the monk.


Alternate Lyrics for ‘The Animal Fair’

I went to the animal fair,
All the birds and the beasts were there,
The big baboon by the light of the moon
Was combing his auburn hair.
You should have seen the monk,
He sat on the elephant's trunk;
The elephant sneezed and fell on his knees,
And what became of the monk,
The monk, the monk, the monk,
The monk, the monk, the monk?

and...

I went to the Animal Fair.
The birds and the bees were there,
The big baboon by the light of the moon,
Was combing his aubern hair.
The monkey fell out of his bunk.
Slid down the elephants trunk;
The elephant sneezed and fell on his knees,
And what became of the monkey,
Monkey, monkey, monkey, monkey.

The first group then carries on while the second group sings the verse again.
