MacToot blows on his bagpipes [bagpipe sound]
While Elspeth and Angus watch those notes go floating across the waves!
Ferocious-Ness appears at once, and grabs a note or two for lunch, [crunch, crunch]
And the whole of the Family Ness is not too far behind!
Sporty-Ness leaps over him, turns upside down then dives back in,
And the beautiful Lovely-Ness shows she's the kissing kind! [mwah]
Eyewit-Ness comes up for air and takein' notes without a care,
Then turns with a crash and a bash and a splash - to the Family Ness.
You can knock it,
You can rock it,
You can go to Timbuktu,
But you'll never find a Nessy in the zoo!
You may see an Anaconda, or Giraffe and Kangaroo,
But you'll never see a Nessy in a zoo!
