Intro:	D	Em	G	A    X2
D			G
I remember the day we had nothin' to do
A			D
So we went down to the City Zoo
D		Em
Just to kill an hour or two
A		D
Out in the good sunshine

But we had so much fun, we were glad that we came
We fed all the animals and gave each a name
An' didn't even mind when it started to rain
We had a real good time

But now that it's over and you're far away
I miss you more with each passing day
And all my friends sympathise and say "He'll forget in time,
		A			D
Yes you will, give yourself a little more time"

G			A
But it's already been well over a year
D				G
And just in case you're interested you might like to hear
Em			A		D			
How everybody's doing down at the City Zoo
Without you

G				A
Well the monkeys forgot ya and the hippo forgot ya
D	Bm		D	G
And so did the kangaroo
D			A			Bm	G   Em
But me and the elephant, we still remember you
D			A		Intro X 2	
Me and the elephant, we'll never forget you

Well I wrote to Ann Landers and Dear Abby too
And sought their advice as to what I should do
And they said everything that reminds me of you
Would all have to go

So I burned all your pictures, except two or three
The one by my bed and one on my TV
And the one that I always carry with me
Everywhere I go

Now today was so nice and since I was in town
I thought I'd take the opportunity to go down
And see how everyone is down at the City Zoo
And what's new

Well the rhino forgot ya an' the zebra forgot ya
The polar bear and tiger too
But me and the elephant, we still remember you
Me and the elephant, we'll never forget you
