Geoffrey Giraffe

I’m Geoffrey the Giraffe and my neck is very long
Tickle my ears (if you can reach them) and I’ll sing you a song

I come from a land where the trees are very tall
If my neck was shorter I couldn’t eat at all
I eat the leaves you see hanging from the tree
I’m Geoffrey, Geoffrey Giraffe

Geoffrey, Geoffrey, Geoffrey
Why is your neck so long?
Geoffrey, Geoffrey, Geoffrey
Please tell us with your song

I come from a land where the ground is very dry
But that’s OK by me, between you and I
I eat the leaves you see hanging from the tree
I’m Geoffrey, Geoffrey Giraffe

Geoffrey, Geoffrey, Geoffrey
Why is your neck so long?
Geoffrey, Geoffrey, Geoffrey
Please tell us with your song

My neck has to be long
If I’m to grow up big and strong
I can stretch to where the other animals can’t
Right up to the tree tops
That’s where my neck stops
I can stretch much higher than the elephants
The zebra and gnu
Meerkat and the hippo too
Can’t stretch to where your dear friend Geoffrey can
I find the tastiest of leaves
Grow in the tallest of the trees
And THAT’S why my neck’s so very long

I come from a land where the trees are very tall
If my neck was shorter I couldn’t eat at all
I eat the leaves you see hanging from the tree
I’m Geoffrey, Geoffrey Giraffe

Geoffrey, Geoffrey, Geoffrey
We know why his neck’s so long
Geoffrey, Geoffrey, Geoffrey
He told us with his song
Geoffrey, Geoffrey, Geoffrey
We know why his neck’s so long
Geoffrey, Geoffrey, Geoffrey
He told us with his song
