She Left Me On A Deserted Island

oh zoo, what did i do?
why do you have to be so cruel?
oh zoo, here go on and take my spoon
go and taste the flavor in that food

oh zoo, you know you don't always have to hide that tattoo
i know you've gotta a sizzling soul and a heart as strong as bamboo
oh zoo, your regal beauty is as sensational as ivory statues
cupid didn't shoot me with an arrow, he speared me with an harpoon

oh zoo, why are you in such a bad mood?
you left me here with no water in the sand dunes
oh zoo, why did you paint the basement bathroom blue?
you left me on an deserted island while you went on a cruise

oh zoo, why do you always say we have nothing to do?
we just bought a house in the hamptons and now you say you wanna move
oh zoo, why did you have to go and burst all those balloons?
why cant we agree to disagree and call a sad truce
