Lyrics

There was an old man named Michael Finnegan.
He grew whiskers on his chin-negan.
The wind came up and blew them in again.
Poor old Michael Finnegan - begin again!

There was an old man named Michael Finnegan.
He fell down and broke his shin-negan.
Folks said, "Mike, you'll never swim again".
Poor old Michael Finnegan - begin again!

There was an old man named Michael Finnegan.
He grew fat and then grew thin again. .
Thinner than a safety pin-negan.
Poor old Michael Finnegan - begin again!

Moving around like the Pop It crew is the way to the perfect dance for you!
Some primates live in trees and some live on the land and in trees. In this episode we meet KINDERZOO’s finest primates like our host Gabby the Gibbon, Deni the Douc Langur, Marty the Mandrill, Colin the Colobus Monkey and Mike the Proboscis Monkey. We also learn how Mike got his large nose in Kinderzoo Tales.
In this episode we go on safari in Africa and meet Polly the Springbok Antelope, Harry the Hippopotamus, Rhiannon the Rhinoceros and we see two of our favourites running around – Debra the Forgetful Zebra and Ryan the Lion. Our KInderzoo Tale this week is about how Gerry the Giraffe got his long neck.
