All down the street they're standin' in line
With white lipstick and one thing on their mind
Hey little freak with the lunch pail purse
Underneath the paint, you're just a little girl

Dancin' at the zombie zoo
Dancin' at the zombie zoo
Painted in a corner and all you wanna do
Is dance down at the zombie zoo

Cute little dropout, how come you pack a rod?
Is your mother in a clinic ? Has your father got no job ?
Sometimes you're so impulsive, you shaved off all your hair
You look like Boris Karloff and you don't even care

You're dancin' at the zombie zoo
Dancin' at the zombie zoo
Painted in a corner and all you wanna do is
Dance down at the zombie zoo

She disappears at sunrise
I wonder where she goes until' the night
Comes fallin' down again
You show up with your friends half-alive

Dancin' at the zombie zoo
Dancin' at the zombie zoo

While you can make a big impression or go through life unseen
You might wind up restricted and over seventeen
It's so hard to be careful so easy to be lead
Somewhere beyond the pavement, you'll find the living dead

Dancin' at the zombie zoo
Dancin' at the zombie zoo
Painted in a corner and all she wants to do
Is dance down at the zombie zoo

She disappears at sunrise
I don't know where she goes until' the night
Comes fallin' down again
She shows up with her friends half-alive

Dancin' at the zombie zoo
Dancin' at the zombie zoo
Painted in a corner and all you wanna do
Is dance down at the zombie zoo

Yeah dance down at the zombie zoo
Yeah dance down at the zombie zoo
