Knocking 'Round The Zoo
(James Taylor)
Transcribed by: Daniel Gold


Just knocking 'round the zoo
On a Thursday afternoon
There's bars on all the windows
And they're counting upon the spoons
If I'm feeling edgy
There's a chick who's paid to be my slave
But she'll hit me with a needle
If she thinks I'm trying to misbehave

Now the keepers trying to cool me
Says I'm bound to be alright
I know that he can't fool me
'Cause I'm putting him uptight
I can feel him getting edgy
Every time I make a sudden move
And I can hear him celebrating
When I finally up and leave the room

Just knocking 'round the zoo
On a Thursday afternoon
There's bars on all the windows
And they're counting upon the spoons
If I'm feeling edgy
There's a chick who's paid to be my slave
But she'll hit me with a needle
If she thinks I'm trying to misbehave

Now my friends they all come to see me
They point at me and stare
He's just like the rest of us
So what's he doing in there?
Now they hide in their movie theaters
Drinking juice and keeping tight
Better watch out for the bright light baby
Because they're certain about one thing:
The Zoo's no place to spend the night, no

Just knocking 'round the zoo
On a Thursday afternoon
There's bars on all the windows
And they're counting upon the spoons
If I'm feeling edgy
There's a chick who's paid to be my slave
But she'll hit me with a needle
If she thinks I'm trying to misbehave
