  • Song Lyrics:
    Zeppo: There's something that I'd like to state
    That he's too modest to relate.
    The Captain is a moral man.
    Sometimes he finds it trying
    Groucho: This fact I'll emphasize with stress
    I never take a drink unless
    Somebody's buying.
    Crowd: The Captain is a very moral man.

    Zeppo: If he hears anything obscene,
    He'll naturally repel it.
    Groucho: I hate a dirty joke I do,
    Unless it's told by someone who
    Knows how to tell it.
    Crowd: The Captain is a very moral man.

    Crowd: Hooray for Captain Spaulding,
    The African Explorer.
    Groucho: Did someone call me Schnorer?
    Crowd: Hooray hooray hooray!

    Zeppo: He went into the jungle,
    Where all the monkeys throw nuts.
    Groucho: If I stay here I'll go nuts.
    Crowd: Hooray hooray hooray.

    Crowd: He put all his reliance
    In courage and defiance.
    And risked his life for science.
    Groucho: Hey hey!

    Dumont: He is the only white man
    Who covered every acre.
    Groucho: I think I'll try and make her.
    Crowd: Hooray hooray hooray!


    Crowd: He put all his reliance
    In courage and defiance.
    And risked his life for science.
    Groucho: Hey hey!

    Crowd: Hooray for Captain Spaulding,
    The African explorer.
    He brought his name undying fame,
    And that is why we say
    Hooray! Hooray! Hooray!

    Groucho: My friends, I am highly gratified at this magnificent display of effusion.
    And I want you to know -

    Crowd: Hooray for Captain Spaulding,
    The African explorer.
    He brought his name undying fame,
    And that is why we say
    Hooray! Hooray! Hooray!

    Groucho: My friends, I am highly gratified at this magnificent display of effusion.
    And I want you to know -

    Crowd: Hooray for Captain Spaulding,
    The African explorer.
    He brought his name undying fame,
    And that is why we say
    Hooray! Hooray! Hooray!

    Groucho: My friends, I am highly gratified at this magnificent display of effusion.
    And I want you to know -
    {singing} Hooray for Captain Spaulding, the African Inquirer.
    {spoken} Well, somebody's gotta do it.
