Lyrics:
Birds do it, bees do it
Even educated fleas do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love

In Spain, the best upper sets do it
Lithuanians and Letts do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love

The Dutch in old Amsterdam do it
Not to mention the Fins
Folks in Siam do it - think of Siamese twins

Some Argentines, without means, do it
People say in Boston even beans do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love

Romantic sponges, they say, do it
Oysters down in oyster bay do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love

Cold Cape Cod clams, 'gainst their wish, do it
Even lazy jellyfish, do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love

Electric eels I might add do it
Though it shocks em I know
Why ask if shad do it - Waiter bring me
 "shad roe"

In shallow shoals English soles do it
Goldfish in the privacy of bowls do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love

Other verses I've seen in print follow:

In old Japan, all the Japs do it
Up in Lapland little Laps do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love

The chimpanzees in the zoos do it
Some courageous kangaroos do it
Let's do it, let's
fall in love

I'm sure giraffes on the sly do it
Even eagles as they fly do it
Let's do it, let's fall
 in love

Electric eels I might add do it
Though it shocks em I know
Why ask if shad do it - garcon de
 "shad roe"

The world admits bears in pits do it
Even Pekingeses at the Ritz do it
Let's do it, let's
 fall in love

The royal set sans regret did it
And they considered it fun
Marie Antoinette did it -
with or without Napoleon

Parliament pleasure bent did it
Mam'selles every time their short of rent

Cold Cape Cod clams, 'gainst their wish, do it
Even lazy jellyfish, do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love

Electric eels I might add do it
Though it shocks em I know
Why ask if shad do it -
Waiter bring me "shad roe"

In shallow shoals English soles do it
Goldfish in the privacy of bowls do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love

Dragonflies in the reeds do it
Sentimental centipedes do it Let's do it, let's fall in love Mosquitos, heaven forbid, do it So does every katydid do it Let's do it, let's fall in love The most refined ladybug do it When a gentleman calls Moth in your rugs do it What on earth, what's the use of balls? The locusts in the trees do it Why, even the bees do it Even over-educated fleas do it Let's do it, let's fall in love The chimpanzees in the zoo do it Some courageous kangaroos do it Let's do it, let's fall in love I'm sure the giraffes on the sly do it Heavy hippopotami do it Let's do it, let's fall in love Sloths who hang down from the twigs do it Though the effort is great Sweet guineapigs do it Buy a couple and wait The world admits bears in pits do it Even Pekingeses in the Ritz do it Let's do it, let's fall in love
