This song began some years ago with different lyrics. I then decided I liked the song but not the words so I re-wrote the lyrics. Recorded in Ableton Live 11 with sampled midi drums. I recorded the guitar direct from a Fishman Loudbox Mini. I like the tone.
I don't wanna see another kangaroo. I don’t wanna go to the zoo.
I don't wanna rent a rusty old canoe. I don’t wanna go to the zoo.
Don't wanna see no volcano, bubblin’ like a witch’s brew.
I don’t wanna buy no bag o’ popcorn too. I don’t wanna go to the zoo.
Lion wants to get a little hootchie koo. Tiger wanna get some too.
You don't wanna think about the things they do. I don’t wanna go to the zoo.
Don’t wanna see no hyenas, and alligators eyein’ you.
Elephants are makin' wickie-wackie-woo. To create a little pachyderm.
Well I was lonely and sad... (lonely and sad)
And I was feelin’ so bad... (feelin’ so bad)
And I was thinkin' of you... (thinkin' of you)
When you came to my rescue...
One of these days you’re gonna make me mad. I didn’t wanna go to the zoo.
Indiana Jones is gonna punch your dad. I didn’t wanna go to the zoo.
Come up and see me in rehab, and I can tell you what to do.
Need another word that's gonna rhyme with glue. I don’t wanna go to the zoo.
