Animal Fair

Lyrics: Traditional
Music: Traditional

Sung by Robert Hunter on 8 May 1981.

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 he got drunk
And sat on the elephant's trunk
The elephant sneezed and fell on his knees
And that was the end of the monk, the monk, the monk
