The Lyrics

I was tired of malasia
I had lived here too long
though I always had work here,
I used my labour all wrong
so while I should be working,
I moved along to a spot
and I saw the koalas.
and I felt really hot..

if you like feeding Koalas
brushing lions and their manes
if you're not into lizards
work the zoo in Bahrain
if you like cleaning dumps at midnight
from the zoos that have apes
it's the job that you've looked for..
there's another..go scrape..

I didn't think about the otters,
I know that sounds kinda mean
but I threw in some fish heads,
to keep them silky and keep them lean
and I went to the next cage
although I felt really bad.
I threw in some food bits
the koalas went mad..


if you like feeding Koalas
brushing lions and their manes
if you're not into lizards
work the zoo in Bahrain
if you like cleaning dumps at midnight
from the zoos that have apes
it's the job that you've looked for..
there's another..go scrape..

yes I like feeding koalas,
helping rhinos escape
I'm not much into bad zoos
like a man with a cape
if I released the birds at midnight
would they all fly away
or get killed by pirhanas
when they land in the lake..

so I worked there for two years,
had the run of the place
had assistants to help me
and I screamed in their face
said "stay away from my babies"
those bears there are mine
or I'll go get a lion
and he'll eat you at nine..

if you like feeding Koalas
brushing lions and their manes
if you're not into lizards
work the zoo in Bahrain
if you like cleaning dumps at midnight
from the zoos that have apes
it's the job that you've looked for..
there's another..go scrape..

if you like feeding Koalas
brushing lions and their manes
if you're not into lizards
work the zoo in Bahrain
if you like cleaning dumps at midnight
from the zoos that have apes
it's the job that you've looked for..
there's another..go scrape..
