The Lyrics

[The House of the Snakes]
We stop and have pizza with wings and calzones,
ate at the food court, talked on our phones
Let’s see the spiders, we come to say "Please",
politely we bend at the knees.
“Fine, we’ll go to the house of the snakes!”
My family talks of when they were young
nightmares ensued better unsung.
Scale covered lizards and all their friends,
pythons with stripes from end to end.
Well, we’ll go to the house of the snakes.
Emperor scorpions’ tails pointed down
cobra is king wearing his crown.
Dimly lit setting with bats floating by
eating some fruit high in the sky
“Heavens to Betsy! Man, oh man! Now is the time to be gone.”
Well, we’ll go to the house of the snakes.
Komodo dragons spawned a new breed
of mouse-hungry reptiles with venomous teeth
Show me a scorpion and I'll run out the door.
The last snake is seen and the children cried, "More!"
"Well, I'm all for leaving and that being done,
I've put in a request to go see some birds
in that forsaken reptile house that’s creepy as hell
where spiders eat insects and snakes swallow whole eggs for food,
won’t get to bed till five, up from a snake nightmare.
Excuse my hate but spiders and snakes for me just won’t do"

The Birds (Overseer Overture)
Colorful birds, dark or light red, white and blue
Tranquil they seem, pleasing
“Fowl” is their play; they are the overseers over you.
Given command to bring us a miserable sphere
Fallen from grace, called on
To bring death and pain, to remake the film from the first frame to last
Seeing the bird house was a far better place,
until a birdie put a scratch on my face.
Taking pics of birds is our desire
Alfred Hitchcock they admire honoring Mr. Hitchcock and his movie.
Bellicose birds surrounding the family in flight
seen in the sky thrashing
I just took a pic then took my leave in the blink of an eye.
Birds out for blood swarm round the family in wrath
Pigtails are pulled tightly.
“Fowl” is their play, they are the overseers over you

[Flight to Polar Bears]
See the icy polar bear; oh he’s an awesome fellow
What a mistake! I didn't take a picture of his torso
gobbling salmon, fins and all; they really taste good not bad
He’d chew through them fishes through the bones, then the bones and the heads they once had.
Polar bears shitting, there’s brown floating feces
The cubs there are sleeping quietly.
Penguins waddling on the rocks, I would give my left nut for
watching them diving in the tank one right after the other
“I would gladly see a sloth climbing up an oak tree”
“Everyone may go separate ways, meet us back here just before 3”
Penguins are bathing, the polar bear’s sharing the tank with them making new friends.
Dolphin show at half past one, there's not a moment to lose.
as we left there we saw the bears all chewing up an old shoe
Orca’s killer appetites
Dolphins leap through big hoops
A little of walrus meat does Orca good, and tastes real good
I like watching polar bears swimming with penguins
I'd stay but my family must take off

Two-Humped Camels (Magus Perde)
Hey guys, stop please! Porta-potties in a line
crossing legs sure is a sign that I’m about to pee
Then we’ll see camels among the sand.
No, I don’t mean the tobacco brand, you see
Two-humped camels take forever chewing hay
but I think it’s gonna rain, a storm about to be.
There they are, animals come to life!
But I think I just saw some lightnin’
I feel raindrops coming down, it’s raining like the devil.
We should go, we’re all damn tired though we love the camels
The visitors among the thunderstorm are running to get dry,
The family’s clothes are dripping as the storm intensified
Animals soaking in their cages, puddles on the floor
Rushing towards the parking lot right past the exit door.
"Oh Man, oh man! Coolest day in my whole life!"
"We’ll come back again to see four-legged living beings"
Here we are! Roll the car away from the zoo through the exit gate.

Although there’s blood among the lion house,
we had some fun at the zoo today.
