"The Zoo" as written by Klaus Meine and Rudolf Schenker....
The job is done and I go out
Another boring day
I leave it all behind me now
So many worlds away

I meet my girl, she's dressed to kill
And all we gonna do
Is walk around to catch the thrill
On streets we call the zoo

We eat the night, we drink the time
Make our dreams come true
And hungry eyes are passing by
On streets we call the zoo

We eat the night, we drink the time
Make our dreams come true
And hungry eyes are passing by
On streets we call the zoo

Enjoy the zoo
And walk down 42nd Street
You want to be excited too
And you will feel the heat

We eat the night, we drink the time
Make our dreams come true
And hungry eyes are passing by
On streets we call the zoo

We eat the night, we drink the time
Make our dreams come true
And hungry eyes are passing by
On streets we call the zoo

    General CommentKlaus is and will always be a steward of our home. The Zoo is about the streets. But only he and Michael will actually be able to share the true meaning.

    General CommentI love the Bruce version (Bruce is my alltime favorite singer), but I actually prefer this version. This and In Trance have to be the 2 most underrated Scorpions songs ever. Sooo good!
