I never cease to be amazed

    When to the zoo I go,

To see folk troop to see the apes,

    Their faces all aglow.

 

Each looks at t’other with alarm,

   Or perhaps it’s with respect.

And what do they both recognize?

    Family features I suspect.

 

So when you observe an orangutan

   Who stares at you in thought,

He’s really thinking: “Bless my soul,

    It’s Aunty that they’ve brought.”
