These are the actual names for all these groups of animals... a fun little kind of 'kids song' more or less.


A parliament of owls meets a caravan of camels
As a cackle of hyenas start to laugh
A quiver of cobras eyes an army of frogs
In the jungle near a tower of giraffes

A zeal of zebras suspect a murder of crows
A business of ferrets disagree
A bask of crocodiles basking in the sun
a band of gorillas practice near a tree

A knot of toads got tangled in an elephant’s parade
A conspiracy of lemurs just looking for some shade
a prickle of porcupines or a shiver of sharks
A pandemonium of parrots squawking in the park

A swarm of bees a pack of wolves, those are no surprise
What do we call a group of humans? “All youse guys”
