Joshua Giraffe is a Raffi song from the album Baby Beluga.

Lyrics Edit

Joshua Giraffe was born in a zoo

He lived there, too, for two years

And a half he hasn't had a bath

My mommy doesn't lick me

Even when I'm sticky

From, candy floss, candy apples, popcorn

Soft drinks, jelly beans and gumdrops

And there must be something better

Than living in this cage

But I'm really not too sure

Because I'm rather short of age

Joshua Giraffe was feeling kind of sad

Things were going bad

How little of life he had

Wasting away with no room to play

Trapped in a zoo with buffalo poo

So he went next door to the elephant

And asked him what to do

I'm wasting away with no room to play

I'm trapped in a zoo, with buffalo poo

The elephant was very old and gray

And he had a huge balloon bottom

And he said, "Never fear Joshua!

For a vision will appear!"

That night a dream came to Joshua and

Joshua saw animals like crazy monkeys...

And a whole pile of Hippypotostropasuses...

And flitty moths...

Frogs size twelve...

And sleazy lizards...

And a tribe of nasty saviar!

But Joshua wasn't afraid

Because he sang himself this song

Nothing can go wrong-o

I'm in the Congo

Nothing can go wrong-o

I'm in the Congo

Nothing can go wrong-o

I'm in the Congo

Nothing can go wrong-o

I'm in the Congo

Nothing can go wrong-o

I'm in the Congo

Nothing can go wrong-o

I'm in the Congo

Even in his dream he knew

He'd never get away

Not even for a day, then!

A peanut hit him on the nose

Joshua Giraffe was back in the zoo

What could he do

Awakened from his dream

He'd never be the same

Because of things he'd seen

He'd seen

Alligators, crocodiles, tree sloths (tree sloths)

Anacondas, cobras and

Large winged moths

Orangutans, gorillas, baboons eating grapes

Gibbons, rude mandrills, and just plain apes

But Joshua was lucky

He had some special friends

And that day they went to the zoo

But he was up tight so they waited till the night

And they chopped his cage in two

He discovered he could fly and

He soared into the sky

With them wrapped around his neck

And they haven't come back yet

So if you see them get a net...

Funicello, ho, ho

Oh-ho-ho-ho-ho

Oh-ho-ho, oh-ho-ho

Oh-ho-ho-ho-ho

Oh-ho-ho, oh-ho-ho

Oh-ho-ho-ho-ho

Oh-ho-ho, oh-ho-ho

Oh-ho-ho-ho-ho

Oh-ho-ho, oh-ho-ho...

That's right, they haven't come back yet

But when they do, they say they're

Going to free all the animals from their cages

No matter how new or modern

Even some pets, too

So if on your way home today

You happen to find

A baboon basking in the balcony

Or a lion licking a lemon in the lobby

Or a python perched in the pantry

A wildebeest in the W.C.,

With a turtle twirling in your tub

Don't be afraid, just say you're a friend

Of their friend

Joshua Giraffe, Joshua, Joshua

Joshua Giraffe, Joshua, Joshua

Joshua Giraffe, Joshua, Joshua

Joshua Giraffe, woo hoo, Joshua, Joshua

Joshua Giraffe, woo hoo, Joshua, Joshua

Joshua Giraffe, woo hoo, Joshua, Joshua

Joshua Giraffe, woo hoo, Joshua, Joshua

Joshua Giraffe, woo hoo, Joshua, Joshua

Joshua Giraffe, woo hoo, Joshua, Joshua

Joshua Giraffe, woo hoo, Joshua, Joshua
