Boku-tachi wa kono machi ja
Yofukashi no suki na fukurou
Hontou no kimochi kakushiteiru
sou KAMEREON (Chameleon)
Asa nebou no niwatori
Tetsuya ake no akame no usagi
Dare to demo umaku yareru
Koumori bakari sa

Mite goran yoku niteiru darou
Dareka-san to
Hora goran hoete bakari iru
Sunao na kimi sa

Stop, Stop, Stop stayin'
Stop, Stop, Stop stayin'
Stop, Stop, Stop stayin'

Hakuchou ni naritai PENGIN (Penguin)
Naritaku wa nai namakemono
Shitsuren shitemo kataashi de
Funbaru FURAMINGO (Flamingo)
Enryo shisugi no meganezaru
Hebi ni niramareta amagaeru
RAION (Lion) ya hyou ni
Atama sagete bakari iru HAIENA (Hyena)

Mite goran yoku niteiru darou
Dareka-san to
Hora goran hoete bakari iru
Sunao na kimi sa

Sokkuri na saru ga boku o yubi sashiteru
Kitto dokoka sumi no hou de
Boku mo ikiterun da

Ai o kudasai oh...
Ai o kudasai zoo
Ai o kudasai oh...
Ai o kudasai zoo, zoo

Oshaberi na kyuukanchou
Aisatsu shitemo henji wa nai
Ki ga muita toki ni
Sabishii nante tsubuyaitari mo suru
"Shaberisugita yokuasa
Ochikomu koto no hou ga ooi"
Aitsu no kimochi wakarisugiru kurai
Yoku wakaru

Mite goran yoku niteiru darou
Dareka-san to
Hora goran hoete bakari iru
Sunao na kimi sa

Hora ne
Sokkuri na saru ga boku o yubi sashiteru
Kitto dokoka sumi no hou de
Boku to kimi no youni

Ai o kudasai oh...
Ai o kudasai zoo
Ai o kudasai oh...
Ai o kudasai zoo, zoo

Stop, Stop, Stop stayin'
Stop, Stop, Stop stayin'
Stop, Stop, Stop stayin'

Walkin' on the wild side yeah yeah (in the zoo)
Walkin' on the right side yeah yeah (in the zoo)
Walkin' on the wild side yeah yeah (in the zoo)
Walkin' on the right side yeah yeah (in the zoo)

Stop, stop, stop stop, stop stayin' (you got woman)
Stop, stop, stop stop, stop stayin'...

Here in this town,
We like to stay up late, like owls --
Hiding our true feelings,
Just like chameleons.
Chickens who oversleep;
Red-eyed rabbits who stay up all night;
There's bats all over
Who can get along with anyone...

Look, they all resemble
Someone --
Look, it's your true self
That's always howling.

Stop, Stop, Stop stayin'...
Stop, Stop, Stop stayin'...
Stop, Stop, Stop stayin'...

A swan who wants to become a penguin,
And a sloth who doesn't...
A flamingo standing on one leg,
Even when its broken-hearted...
Lemurs with too much restraint;
Tree frogs glaring at snakes;
The hyena who always bows its head
To the lions and leopards...

Look, they all resemble
Someone --
Look, it's your true self
That's always howling.

Look,
A monkey who looks just like me is pointing at me.
Surely somewhere, off in a corner,
I'll be living, too.

Please give me love, oh...
Please give me love in this zoo.
Please give me love, oh...
Please give me love in this zoo, zoo.

I greet the usually talkative myna bird,
But it doesn't answer.
When it feels like it,
It sometimes mutters of loneliness:
"The day after I've talked too much
I often feel depressed".
I understand how he feels
All too well...

Look, they all resemble
Someone --
Look, it's your true self
That's always howling.

Look,
A monkey who looks just like me is pointing at me.
I'm sure it resembles me somehow,
Just like you and me.

Please give me love, oh...
Please give me love in this zoo.
Please give me love, oh...
Please give me love in this zoo, zoo.

Stop, Stop, Stop stayin'...
Stop, Stop, Stop stayin'...
Stop, Stop, Stop stayin'...

Walkin' on the wild side, yeah yeah (in the zoo)
Walkin' on the right side, yeah yeah (in the zoo)
Walkin' on the wild side, yeah yeah (in the zoo)
Walkin' on the right side yeah yeah (in the zoo)

Stop, stop, stop stop, stop stayin' (you got woman)
Stop, stop, stop stop, stop stayin'...
