Knocking 'round The Zoo

This song is by James Taylor And The Flying Machine and appears on the album James Taylor And The Original Flying Machine -- 1967 (1971) by James Taylor.

Just knocking around the zoo on a Thursday afternoon
There's bars on all the windows and they're counting up the spoon babe
And if I'm feeling edgy, there's a chick who's paid to be my slave, yeah, watch out James
But she'll hit me with a needle if she thinks I'm trying to misbehave, yeah

Now the keeper's trying to cool me says I'm bound to be all right
But I know that he can't fool me 'cause I'm putting him uptight, yeah, yeah
And I can feel him getting edgy every time I make a sudden move, whoa, yes it's true
And I can hear him celebrating every time I up and leave the room

Said my friends all come to see me, they point at me and stare
See he's just like the rest of us so what's he doing there?
They hide in their movie theaters drinking juice, keeping tight, watch that bright light bishop
'Cause they're certain about one thing, babe, that zoo's no place to spend the night, no, no

Just knocking around the zoo on a Thursday afternoon
Said there's bars on all the windows and they're counting up the spoons, babe
And if I'm feeling edgy, there's a chick who's paid to be my slave, yeah, watch out Kootch
But she'll hit me with a needle if she thinks I'm trying to misbehave
