Inquisitive Child, And Sometimes The Questions Get Wild

Driving to pick up the kid, I just heard Oscar Brown Jr's original 1961 recording of "Dat Dere" for the first time. And it is awesome. Brown's lyrics start with a kid pummeling his dad with questions on a trip to the zoo. My favorite lines have to be,

"Hey, Daddy, what's a square?
And where do we get air?
And Daddy, can I have that big elephant over there?"

Typing it now, I realize it could be geometry, but with a jazzman's kid, I'm pretty sure that's not the square he's asking about.
