Knockin' Round The Zoo - 2010 - Remaster - Lyrics

Just knocking around the zoo
On a Thursday afternoon
There's bars on all the windows
And they're counting up the spoons, babe
And if I'm feeling edgy
There's a chick who's paid to be my slave
Yeah, watch out, James
But she'll hit me with a needle
If she thinks I'm trying to misbehave, yeah

Now, the keeper's trying to cool me
Says I'm bound to be all right
But I know that he can't fool me
'Cause I'm putting him uptight, yeah
And I can feel him getting edgy
Every time I make a sudden move
Whoa, yes, it's true
And I can hear 'em celebrating
Every time I up and leave the room

Some of the friends all come to see me
They point at me and stare
Said, "He's just like the rest of us
So what's he doing there?"
Now, they hide in their movie theaters
Drinking juice, keeping tight
Watch that bright light, bishop
'Cause they're certain about one thing, babe,
That zoo's no place to spend the night, no, no

Just knocking around the zoo
On a Thursday afternoon
Said, there's bars on all the windows
And they're counting up the spoons, babe
And if I'm feeling edgy
There's a chick who's paid to be my slave
Yeah, watch out, Kootch
But she'll hit me with a needle
If she thinks I'm trying to misbehave, yeah
