       E7
Just a-knockin’ around that zoo, on a Thursday afternoon
There’s bars on all the windows, and they’re countin’ up the spoons, babe
       A7
And if I’m feelin’ edgy
                             E7
There’s a chick who’s paid to be my slave, yeah, watch out James
           B7(#9)                      A7                             E7   (B7#9)
But she’ll hit me with a needle if she thinks I’m tryin to misbehave, yeah

Now the keeper’s tryin’ to cool me, says I’m bound to be alright
But I know that he can’t fool me, cause I’m puttin’ him up tight, yeah
And I can feel him gettin’ edgy
Every time I make a sudden move, oh whoa, yes it’s true
And I can hear him celebratin’ every time I up and leave the room

Solo:

Now my friends all come to see me, they point at me and stare
Say he’s just like the rest of us, so what’s he doin’ there?
Now they hide in their movies, girl
Pick and choose, sleep in tight, what’s the bright light shinnin’
And I’m certain bout one thing, babe that zoo’s no place to spend the night, no

Just a-knockin’ around that zoo, on a Thursday afternoon
There’s bars on all the windows, and they’re countin’ up the spoons, babe
And if I’m feelin’ 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 tryin to misbehave, yeah

End on B7(#9)
