SEAT Altea XL Toys Went In Two By Two

The animals go in two by two in SEAT’s European television commercial for the Altea XL launched in late 2006, accompanied by a children’s nursery rhyme about Noah’s Ark. On a dark and stormy night a room full of toys comes alive to the tune of ‘The Animals Went In Two by Two’. A couple of toy monkeys, piglets, fluffy teddy bears, giraffes, robots, rabbits, a He-man doll and a lizard man all move towards the door. We see them walking, hopping, whirring and crawling through the rain. When a young boy and his parents open up the back of the SEAT Altea they discover the toys neatly waiting.

Lyrics for the Animals Go In Two By Two

To the tune of “When Johnny Comes Marching Home”

In Spanish

Los animales de dos en dos, UA!UA!
Los animales de dos en dos, UA!UA!
Los animales de dos en dos el alce y la vaca diciendo adiós,
Se metió en el arca y al chaparrón venció.
Los animales de dos en dos, UA!UA!
Los animales de dos en dos, UA!UA!
Los animales de dos en dos…

In English

The animals went in two by two, hurrah! hurrah!
The animals went in two by two, hurrah! hurrah!
The animals went in two by two,
the elephant and the kangaroo
And they all went into the ark, for to get out of the rain.

The animals went in three by three, hurrah! hurrah!
The animals went in three by three, hurrah! hurrah!
The animals went in three by three,
the wasp, the ant and the bumble bee
And they all went into the ark, for to get out of the rain.
The animals went in four by four, hurrah! hurrah!

The animals went in four by four, hurrah! hurrah!
The animals went in four by four,
the great hippopotamus stuck in the door
And they all went into the ark, for to get out of the rain.

The animals went in five by five, hurrah! hurrah!
The animals went in five by five, hurrah! hurrah!
The animals went in five by five,
they warmed each other to keep alive
And they all went into the ark, for to get out of the rain.

The animals went in six by six, hurrah! hurrah!
The animals went in six by six, hurrah! hurrah!
The animals went in six by six,
they turned out the monkey because of his tricks
And they all went into the ark, for to get out of the rain.

The animals went in seven by seven, hurrah! hurrah!
The animals went in seven by seven, hurrah! hurrah!
The animals went in seven by seven,
the little pig thought he was going to heaven
And they all went into the ark, for to get out of the rain.
