If you grew up in Philadelphia in the 60's, you heard this ad infenitum ("many times" for those who don't speak Latin);
it had a catchy tune! I would sing it for you but alas you can't hear me that well on-line.

All the animals in the Zoo are jumping up and down for you
Making sure that you will plan a day at the zoo as soon as you can.
Story books that really talk you turn on with a key
Tell fascinating things about the animals you see.
Story books and zoo keys together guide you through
A world of new excitement that awaits you at the zoo.


You could buy a "zoo key" shaped like a red plastic elephant and insert it into kiosk boxes that had pre-recorded
messages about the exhibits. I still have mine - sure it is a collector's item. It reminds me of the days gone by.

No real Bob content here, just my mind wandering....

Oooh ooooh!! I just thought of a great song for the theme! (Bob might even play it too!) C'mon what other song has an echidna in it? Echidnas (along with the platypus) are the only mammals that lay eggs. Echidna's young are known as puggles. The females lay their leathery eggs directly into their pouches and the male has a four-headed penis (really). This animal proves my theory that Australia has some weird-ass animals.

Mammal -- They Might Be Giants

http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-1773114938891965475

Glass of milk
Standing in between extinction in the cold
and explosive radiating growth
So the warm blood flows
Through the large four-chambered heart
Maintaining the very high metabolism rate they have

Mammal, mammal
Their names are called
They raise a paw
The bat, the cat
Dolphin and dog
Koala bear and hog

One of us might lose his hair
But you're reminded that it once was there
From the embryonic whale to the monkey with no tail
So the warm blood flows
with the red blood cells lacking nuclei
Through the large four-chambered heart
Maintaining the very high metabolism rate they have

Mammal, mammal
Their names are called
They raise a paw
The bat, the cat
Dolphin and dog
Koala bear and hog

Placental the sister of her brother Marsupial
Their cousin called Monotreme
Dead uncle Allotheria

Mammal, mammal
Their names are called
They raise a paw
The bat, the cat
Dolphin and dog
Koala bear and hog
The fox, the ox
Giraffe and shrew
Echidna, caribou

I think you may win the award for "most obscure animal" song. :lol:

Me, I'm betting on Memphis Minnie's Mean Red Spider.

Sorry, Pierre, I guess I'm not as perfect as you. My spelling finger must have slipped.

There is a rule around here - no criticisms until you have 500 posts in the forum - you only have 495 posts to go!

Leave it to Bob to come up with a third option. "One Black Rat" How many animal songs did that woman have? Too bad he didn't play my TMBG song. But I did hit on the Toots song.
