  • Song Lyrics:
    This is the start of the Laarge Daark Aardvark Song.
    (bum-bum-bum-bum, bum-bum-bum, bum, yeah yeah yeah!)

    There is a large dark aardvark in the park,
    They say he's missing from the zoo.
    (that's me, folks!)

    And the police are looking high and low
    But they have not seen him; have you?

    Why did he go?
    Oh, I'll tell you the reason:
    'Cause it's aardvark mating season.

    When an aardvark makes a date
    He sneaks right through that old zoo gate.
    So, if you see two aardvarks necking in the park,
    Don't upset their apple cart.

    Do not be a spy, you're not the FBI
    And you should never break an aardvark's heart.

    This is the second chorus of the Aardvark Song.

    To be an aardvark is not easy, folks,
    'Cause all you get to eat is ants.

    And all the other animals make jokes
    At your attempts to find romance.
    (very funny...)

    Nobody laughs at hippopotamusses,
    Or at fat rhinoceroses,

    But an aardvark makes them howl
    Because he's neither fish nor fowl;

    He's like a kangaroo in love with a gnu,
    And that's what makes the zoo folks laugh.

    All of this is so, and here is how I know:
    I'm your friendly neighborhood giraffe!

    This is the end of the Laarge Daark Aardvark Song.
    (bum-bum-bum-bum, bum-bum-bum, bum, yeah yeah yeah!)
