A hadada ibis, I do
Like to people watch a whole lot
Here at home in Lincoln Park Zoo.
Some folks are fun to watch, some not.
Some people that I watch may hear
Me make my call of "ha-da-da."
And thus my name it does appear
Was heard and folks then thought, "Ah hah! "
I've heard that some folks think my call
Is an omen both good and bad.
And so amused I do watch all
For reactions my calls have had.
And so when you're around this bird,
I'll watch you as I give the word.
