The Lyrics

It's been a year since you were here,
Hurro, hurro,
It's been a year since you were here,
Hurro, hurro.
It's been a year since you here.
This solemn occasion demands a tear.
To remember you our darling dear,
Harambe we hardly knew ye.

Where are those eyes that looked so mild?
Hurro, hurro.
Where are those eyes that looked so mild?
Hurro, hurro
Where are those eyes that looked so mild?
They said that you were wicked and wild,
Why did you go and drag the child?
Harambe we hardly knew ye.

Chorus:
And we're sad and mad, and mad and sad,
Hurro, hurro
And we're sad and mad, and mad and sad,
Hurro, hurro,
We're, sad and mad, and mad and sad,
We're sure that you were not so bad.
Overreacted - just a tad?
Harambe we hardly knew ye!

The zookeeper went for his gun,
Hurro, Hurro,
The zookeeper went for his gun,
Hurro, hurro,
The zookeeper went for his gun,
They thought he slayed you just for fun.
And now your captive days are done.
Harambe we hardly knew ye.

Farewell, farewell O noble soul
Farewell, farewell
Farewell, farewell O noble soul
Farewell, farewell
Farewell, farewell O noble soul,
Let us remember and this console:
Your memory's not what they stole.
Harambe we hardly knew ye!
