"Animals" as written by Anthony Whiting and Lisa Mitchell....
I lost everything I thought I had,
I lost everything that made me sad
But nothing is nothing and I know that,
nothing is nothing and I ain't glad,

Well I'm on the road with a book of truths,
I'm on the search for silver loots,
the maps are drawn all through the skies,
I see the signs in stranger's eyes,

And all the animals are gone
All the animals are gone
Wa-ho, Wa-ho
Ah-ho, Ah-ho
Well you are a good sign,
that now is a good time,
Wa-ho, Wa-ho
Ah-ho, Ah-ho
You are a good sign,
that now is a good time,

Saddle up your palomino
Grab it all we'll go to Rio
Yet nothing is nothing and I know that
Nothing is nothing and I ain't glad

Let the storms run through your clothes
Let the ink run down your nose
Your whole life for you to see
Maybe that's how it's supposed to be

And all the animals are gone
All the animals are gone
Wa-ho, Wa-ho
Ah-ho, Ah-ho
Oh! You are a good sign,
that now is a good time,
Wa-ho, Wa-ho
Ah-ho, Ah-ho, Ah-ho
You are a good sign,
that now is a good time, (x2)

Wa-ho, Wa-ho
Ah-ho, Ah-ho, Ah-ho
You are a good sign,
that now is a good time,

    General CommentThe lines

    'Saddle-up your pony no!

    The correct lyrics are
    'Saddle up your palomino'
    'Grabbin all the gold in Rio'

    (A palomino is a type of horse)

    'Let the storms run through your clothes'

    Also the line 'The world for you to see' isn't that.
    Not sure exactly but it sounds more like 'hold like a beauty scene'
