You're just an animal in the zoo
Sittin' round feeling persecuted and abused
You're locked up and I'm on the loose
But I can't quite tell who's looking at who

'Cause I'm an animal, too
But you're locked up in a zoo
And you look at me and I look at you

God made the heaven and the deep blue sea
But man picked the flowers and he pulled up the trees
God made the moon and the rain and the sun
But man made the money and the bombs and the guns

So we're all animals, too
But you're locked up in a zoo
And you look at me and I look at you

I'm a prisoner but I got no cage
I'm locked up but I got no chain
But the good guys lose and the bad guys win
That's why you're looking out and I'm looking in

But we're all animals, too
But you're locked up in a zoo
'Cause you look at me and I look at you
