My name is David Duffy, from Kitchener Ontario in Canada. For many years, I have been volunteering to play guitar and sing for children at Day-care centers here in town, and I have been looking for the lyrics to a song that I heard when I was about 3 or 4

The song was called (I think) "The Giraffe is Laughing" It was on an old 45 record, and the song was done in polka style. I have long since lost the record, and I can not remember who performed it, but I do know that the earliest episodes of the SECOND CITY TV show ended with the instrumental version of the song (music but no one singing).

I have looked for the lyrics to this song all over the internet, but to no avail. Can you help me?

A laughing Giraffe doing a polka. Someone must know it - it's not the kind of thing you'd forget.

Hey,Dave, hats off to you for bringing music to day care centres on a volunteer basis. If you're ever in the Halifax area email me....I could find you some volunteer gigs!

The lyrics that I still remember go something like this...
Do do do do do you know what happened at the zoo?
What happened at the zoo?
What happened at the zoo?
Do do do do do you know what happened at the zoo?
It really really really did come true!
The giraffe is laughing, ha ha ha
Yes indeed he's laughing,ha ha ha
Yesterday he started laughing, ha ha ha
And now he's laughing more and more
He never made a sound before
But now he's laughing more and more

I have this song on the flipside of a "Bambi" LP I managed to hang on to for about forty years!
