The Lyrics

I'm so tired
Tired of washing
Tired of washing gnus
I'm all mired
Mired from splashing
I'd rather play my kazoo

It sure was not my goal
To get employment here at the zoo
But zookeeper is paying
And it's full time!
Here at the zoo
There's no strife
'Cause one can feed elephants
Or goats I like
But geez, there ain't no promoting
I'm not even showboating
Yes, I'm so tired
Tired of washing
Tired of washing gnus

Not fired!
Tired of washing
Tired of washing gnus
I'd like to care for moles
Or birds or monkeys, koalas too
So I just keep on waiting
Biding my time
All I can do
Can't take wIfe
Out to a fancy restaurant
Buy what I like
With those guys I am competing
For posts with higher rating
For now, I'm just hired
Hired for washing
Hired for washing gnus
So tired
Tired of washing
Tired of washing gnus
It's true

Nice and uber-clean parody here (for once, LOL)! But with your avowed zoophobia, you should definitely avoid that Zooey Deschanel...

Washing the animals out in the cold? Careful you don't wind up with gnu-matic fever! ;)

Sec code: FAB. It works on so many levels here... :)

Fiddlegirl, I thought you were going to take that a different direction with "gnu-monia"

(Artistry) Last round it was centre of gravity, now it's washing an obscure animal...what incredibly random topic will Agrimorfee base a parody on next? Who knows? Given as they're all great parodies, who honestly cares? 555!

(Artistry) At last, a gnus-worthy parody! At least gnuwasher is a step up from fleapicker!

Very. . .interesting. . .I don't know, I couldn't help but feel that TOS didn't give you enough to work with to really blow this one out the water, still very unique
