In Make-Believe Town,
In Make-Believe Town,
In Make-Believe Town,
Oh, yes,

In Make-Believe Town,
Oh, Make-Believe Town,
Oh, Make-Believe Town
Is a mess

It's a mess because all the animals walk,
It's a mess because they all draw with chalk,
It's a mess because all the hunting hounds...

Chorus:
Go no more a-hunting, a-hunting, a-hunting
Go no more a-hunting,
But that's in animal Make-Believe Town.

Well the monkey who lives
In Make-Believe Town
He loves to drink saffron tea
He sits on the veranda
And talks to the panda
And then he jumps into the sea

He jumps into the sea because it is green
He jumps into the sea to visit the queen
He jumps into the sea because the hunting hounds...

(Chorus)

Well the elephant lives
In Make-Believe Town
And he is a wise old man
He studied in books
Where nobody looks
Because they're all covered with jam

He is wise because of his blue shirt of lace
He is wise because of his wrinkly face
He is wise because all the hunting hounds...

(Chorus)

Well the magician who lives
In Make-Believe Town
He can do any trick in the book
He makes little girls giggle
And tadpoles twiggle
And rides through the sky on his hook

He rides because the good fairy is there
And he rides because he has long purple hair
He rides because all the hunting hounds...

(Chorus)

Well the children that live
In Make-Believe Town
They are good friends like you and me
They can go where they wish
And hide in a dish
And climb in the sassafras tree

They are friends because they all love one another
They are friends because they all sing to each other
They are friends because all the hunting hounds...

(Chorus)
