Burma - Lincoln Park Zoo


I am Burma, a gibbon girl,
Swinging at the Lincoln Park Zoo.
Caruso sets my heart awhirl.
He's my dear hubby, showoff true.
My fur is mostly creme, some blacked.
Caruso's mostly black, some white,
Proof that opposites do attract,
And over money, never fight.
Caruso is my only choice
To man up our family.
He sings to me with that great voice,
And we live in sweet harmony.

Come watch him swing and strut his stuff.
I watch and never get enough.
