Barbra Streisand – Sweet Zoo lyrics

I dreamed last night that I was a tiger in the jungle
But I was a big bad tiger, so a lion killed me
And then I was an elephant, a great big elephant
There wasn't anything I couldnt do
Till they caught and they brought me to the zoo
So I dreamed I was an alligator
-crocodile? -no, alligator!
With a great big mouth
And four very funny little legs
Which are no good for dancing
So, then I was a dancing bear
And I was doing my dancing where the bears dance
But I was sneezing, cause I was a dancing polar bear
And it was freezing
Then I dreamed I was a giraffe
I looked so ridiculous I wanted to laugh
But giraffes can't talk, so how can they laugh?
Who ever saw a giraffe laugh?
Then I woke up
And I was not a tiger, or and elephant,
I was not an alligator. -crocodile? -no, alligator!
I was not a dancing bear or a tall giraffe
I was only me... and that's the way I'll be!
Oh, that's the way I'll be
I enjoy being an oyster!
