The Chimpanzoo" is a deleted song from the movie Mary Poppins.

This had been a scene where Mary Poppins sang a song to the Banks children while at Uncle Albert's floating tea party, which lead to a live-action/cartoon fantasy sequence where humans are kept in cages for animals to gawk at.

Lyrics

In Timbuktu, there's a Chimpanzoo

That's run by a chimpanzee.

It's an oddish place where the human race

Is under lock and key.

And on their backs, they wear small plaques

For the animals to view.

Which specify the reasons why

They're kept in the Chimpanzoo.

If you're boisterous and bumptious,

you're grist for the Chimpanzoo!

If you're overly rambuctious,

you're whisked to Timbuktu

Laughs, laughs, nothing but laughs

But you know who's laughing at who?

It's the animals there who giggle and stare

at you in the Chimpanzoo!

(Kazoo break)

You may never play the musicals

In all your wildest dreams.

But billow and blast in the Chimpanzoo

And the animals burst their seams

It takes a lot of talent and time

To become a West End attraction.

But in this place, one rude grimace

Gets a marvelous reaction.

Now this chimpanzoo's relations

Keep the cages looking posh

Till the wick-ids take their tickets

And to play the lemon squash

Laughs, laughs, nothing but laughs

But you know who's laughing at who?

It's the animals there who giggle and stare

Gape with glee incredulously

At the boisterous bumptious rowdy crew

At you in the Chimpanzoo.
