C G F C C G F C 

[Am]Down at the zoo, [G]there isn’t any noise
[Em]It’s much too early, [G]for girls and boys
[Am]The monkeys have a plan, [G]but you mustn’t say a word
[Em]They’re going to do it quietly, [G]so they can’t be heard

[F]They’re sawing through the bars
[C]They’re climbing out the cage
[G]They’re tiptoeing past the zoo keeper
[F]They’re running out the gates

[C]Because today [G]the monkeys are [F]breaking out the [C]zoo (x2)

[Am]The zoo keeper’s sleeping, [G]he hasn’t heard a thing
[Em]All of the monkeys, [G]escaping
[Am]When he wakes up, [G]he’s going to get a shock
[Em]He’s lost all the monkeys, [G]and they won’t come back

[F]They’re skipping down the street
[C]They’re beating on their chests
[G]They’re laughing and screeching
[F]And scratching their heads

[C]Because today [G]the monkeys are [F]breaking out the [C]zoo (x4)

[Am]If you plan to go, [G]to the zoo today
[Em]You won’t see monkeys, [G]cuz they’ve gone away

[F]They’re heading for the mountains
[C]They’re heading for the trees 
[G]They’re happy just to run around
[F]And they’re happy to be free

[F]Some are hailing taxis
[C]Some are riding bikes
[G]Some are swimming rivers
[F]Some are flying kites

[F]Now they’re jumping 
[C]And swinging from the trees
[G]Rolling on the floor
[F]And picking out the fleas

[C]Because today [G]the monkeys have [F]broken out the [C]zoo (x8)
