The Lyrics

now, when i was just a little boy
livin' with the chimpanzees
the keeper said, "son, you know we can't let you...
do what you damn well please...
we can't let ya...
we can't let ya, now"

and i can remember my youth, if i try
runnin' through the cages, bare
and i can still hear that ol' zoo keep barkin'
how'd a human get in there ?
how'd a human get in there ?

born in the town zoo
born in the town zoo
born in the town zoo

wish i was back in the town zoo
rollin' with the some gators, green
wishin' i was on lush terrain
just a-chargin' on down those grassy plains

born in the town zoo
born in the town zoo
born in the town zoo

i can remember the zebras and i
runnin' through the evenin' air
and i can still hear those hyenas barkin'
laughin' like they just don't care
laughin' like they just don't care

born in the town zoo
born in the town zoo
born in the town zoo
