lyrics

There are lions and tigers in the park
But they only come out after dark
There are elephants and monkeys too
And they'll do anything I want them to

The doctor told me not to go in there
I asked him why he should care
He said stay inside the lines and squares
You can leave them if you dare

I was standing there when a bus rolls by,
I try to catch the driver’s eye
He looks like he’s a monkey too
Ferrying animals from the zoo
They’ll be safer here he says
Staying here with me and you.
The foghorn sounds down by the bay
But no-one listens anyway

I've got to get away. Got to get away
Things go on day to day. But I’ve got to get away.

I saw you by the jungle jim
There was money in your hand
I didn’t see who you were talking to
You were looking very thin
I saw Jesus with his crucifix
Mary with her tears
I saw Gandhi with his glasses on
And Hitler wears a beard

The trees are above us
They disappear into the sky
They fill with bats and noises
As the hours go spinning by
There are lions and tigers in the park
They only come out after dark
There are elephants and monkeys too
They’ll do anything I want them to.

I've got to get away. Got to get away
Things go on day to day. But I’ve got to get away.
