The Lyrics

I created this charatcer called "The Zoo Boy" for a short story I wrote in a class. He's somewhat remeniscent of Donnie from "The Wild Thornberrys". So the Zoo Boy has taken up residency in a local zoo, and the zoo owner wants him out!
Intro: Oh-wa-oh
Roar, roar, roar
Roar, roar, roar

Chorus: Where’s that Zoo boy, boy
Go and round him up
Where’s that Zoo boy, boy
Go and snatch him up
Snatch him, snatch him (yeah)
Grab him, grab him (yeah)
Snag him, snag him (yeah)
Tag him, tag him (yeah)
God damn Zoo boy, boy
We should lock him up
God damn Zoo boy, boy
Think we’re giving up?
Seize him, seize him (yeah)
Leave him, leave him (yeah)
Let him, let him (yeah)
Get him, get him (yeah)

Verse 1: Tonight think he’s sleepin’ with the lions
Tonight think he’s chillin’ with the chimps, yeah
Tonight think we’re gonna catch the Zoo boy
Saddle up, saddle up, saddle up yeah!
Last night saw him playin’ with tigers
Last night saw him get real hyper
Tonight, gonna catch myself a Zoo boy
Gotta catch that Zoo boy!
Can you find this boy?
I wa-wa-want
Zoo boy go-go-gone
He acts like a monkey
So wrong, wrong, wrong
What I wa-wa-want
Takes too lo-lo-long
Na na, ah, ah!

Chorus: Catch that Zoo boy, boy
‘Fore he hurts himself
Get that Zoo boy, boy
Please do something else
Hurry, hurry
Worry, worry
Rooting, rooting
Losing, losing
Can’t find Zoo boy, boy
Think he’s in the trees
Find that Zoo boy, boy
Just locate him please!
Baiting, baiting
Waiting, waiting
Clowned him, clowned him
Found him, found him

Verse 2: Oh yes! Think we fin’lly got the Zoo boy
Oh yes! Think we got him in this sack
Oh no! Guys this just isn’t the Zoo boy!
Oh, you stupid, you’re useless
Dude, that’s our chimp name Zach!
Listen up
You can hear the Zoo boy singin’
Look up
And you’ll see the Zoo boy swingin’
Tonight, Imma go a little crazy
Go a little crazy, maybe
I don’t like the way
He wa-wa-walks
Or he ta-ta-talks
Ev’ry night I’m searchin’
Like stalk, stalk, stalk
When he squaw-squaw-squawks
Like the haw-haw-hawks
Oh no, no, no!

Chorus: That’s it Zoo boy, boy
Think I’ve had enough
Come on Zoo boy, boy
I have got some stuff
Take it, take it
Maybe, maybe
Take it, take it
Got him! Got him!
Got the Zoo boy, boy
Now my problem’s through
No more Zoo boy, boy
In my perfect zoo
Slappy, slappy
Happy, happy
Crappy? Crappy?
What is happ’ning?!?!

Bridge: Folks liked the things the Zoo boy did
Kids liked the way he just acted
He just, maybe the reason
That they came here at all
They like when they saw the Zoo boy dance
They like when the Zoo boy lost his pants
He’s the key!
Go and get the key!
Go and get the Zoo boy
He is our big star now!
Shines so bright now

Greatness, greatness
Shameless, shameless
Stat-us, stat-us
Famous, famous

Chorus: Thank you Zoo boy, boy
Go and live it up
Love that Zoo boy, boy
Gotta give it up
So cool, so cool
He rules, he rules
Brings in people
All to my zoo
Havin’ Zoo boy, boy
Is a dream come true
Thanks to Zoo boy, boy
Have a world-class zoo
Zero, zero
Hero, hero
The best zoo cuz
Zoo boy’s here oh!

Zoo boy’s here oh!
Zoo boy’s here oh!
Zoo boy’s here oh!
Zoo boy’s here oh!

Zero, zero
Hero, hero
The best zoo cuz
Zoo boy’s here oh!

Zoo boy’s here oh! (yeah)
Zoo boy’s here oh! (yeah)
Zoo boy’s here oh! (yeah)
Zoo boy’s here oh!

Zero, zero
Hero, hero
The best zoo cuz
Zoo boy’s here oh!

Great work! Nice topic to go with the OS. I thought I had an absolute favorite parody of "Rude Boy", but this one is a very close second!

I think Zoo Boy should replace David Caruso on CSI: Miami.

I liked it, even though it was hard to follow the story at first , given the song structure. But the energy of the OS helped make it fun.

(ABC) A real wild read about that wild child. my kids use to love The Wild Thornberry's.

(ABC) Someone like Zoo Boy would deffo be the only reason I'd go to a zoo, that's for sure. Some of the lines were a bit odd (like the "leave him, leave him"...wasn't the point to find the little bastard?) but otherwise this was fantastic, especially given how short the OS' lines are. 555!

Funny. My comment doesn't appear to be here. I know I read it because this is the only parody of the song I've seen other than my own "Prude Boy". Well done.

(ABC) The OS didn't give you much to work with here, it's really choppy and makes it hard to continue a story. Sorry, not one of your shining moments bro. :(

It does get on the repetitive side for me, this particular Rihanna song is difficult because it offers little margin for comedy without major variation, which with your topic choice was hard to do. I also read a bit rocky for me, not bad. . .
