Don’t Pick on Giraffes

Don’t pick on giraffes
Don’t say they look daft
Don’t look at their loooooooooong necks
And poke fun and laugh
 
Ok they look strange
Ok they look odd
With their heads such a long way away from their bods
 
I knew one who married a lamppost it’s true
I knew one who was too big to fit in the zoo
I knew one so short-sighted he’d not seen his toes
I know one with huge scarf he wore in the snow
 
Don’t pick on giraffes
Don’t say they look daft
Don’t look at their loooooooooong necks
And poke fun and laugh
 
Ok they look weird
Ok they’re sooooooooooo tall
With ears so far up they don’t hear when you call
 
I knew one who lived with his head in the clouds
I knew one who always stood out in a crowd
I knew one who never could get clothes to fit him
I knew one who complained when aeroplanes hit him
 
Don’t pick on giraffes
Don’t say they look daft
Don’t look at their loooooooooong necks
And poke fun and laugh
 
They’re the tallest creatures you ever will see
So much taller than you
So much taller than me
They’re taller than houses
They’re taller than trees
They’re taller than really tall things - so please:
Don’t pick on giraffes
Don’t say they look daft
Don’t look at their loooooooooong necks
And poke fun and laugh
