Animals In The Zoo

Ray Davies, released on Percy, © Coronado Music 1971

.

You're just an animal in the zoo

Sittin' round feeling persecuted and abused

You're locked up and I'm on the loose

But I can't quite tell who's looking at who

'Cause I'm an animal, too

But you're locked up in a zoo

And you look at me and I look at you

.

God made the heaven and the deep blue sea

But man picked the flowers and he pulled up the trees

God mad the moon and the rain and the sun

But man made the money and the bombs and the guns

So we're all animals, too

But you're locked up in a zoo

And you look at me and I look at you

.

I'm a prisoner but I got no cage

I'm locked up but I got no chain

But the good guys lose and the bad guys win

That's why you're looking out and I'm looking in

But we're all animals, too

But you're locked up in a zoo

'Cause you look at me and I look at you

.
