Lie down and close your eyes
Hey now, hey now, hey now, hey
You may be in for a little suprise
Hey now, hey now, hey now, hey
(??? over here something moving on the floor here)
Hey now, hey now, hey now, hey
Something wild with a mind of it's own
Hey now, hey now, hey now, hey

Scamper about like little tiny beasts
Looking for a house
(or maybe just a hole
And complain to the mouse)
Baby baby don't cry

Scamper all around way up in a tree
So far from the ground
Where they'll never catch me
(???) through my brain
Baby baby don't cry

They're part of the scheme
Nature always is
Physical it seems
We don't have a (basement)
Something isn't right
Baby baby don't cry

Scamper throught the night
Our little ears alert
(????????????)
It wouldn't even hurt if we
Had a little fun
Baby baby don't cry
Baby baby don't cry
Baby baby don't cry

Cause animals are under our skins
Those animals deep within
Those animals scampering about
Cause there ain't nothing
To try to stop them baby
Hey now, hey now, hey now, hey
And they say
Hey now, hey now, hey now, hey
Hey now, hey now, hey now, hey

Wake up, they're coming alive
We're changing so fast
We don't want to be left behind
Can't stop
Baby baby don't cry

I jump around the sidewalk
(until it starts to whir)
We don't need clothes
Soon we'll have our own fur
Oh what's wrong
Baby baby don't cry

Don't feel bad
I'm going away
I'll come back
Looking for you some day
Hang on baby
Baby baby don't cry

Cause animals are under my skin
Those animals deep within

Why don't they leave me alone
They're bringing me down
It's just a matter of time
I'm on the line I'm on the line
The whole things come undone
We're all on the line
Get back
I'll never come back
Those animals
The animals

Those animals are under my skin
Those animals are under my skin
Those animals are under my skin
Those animals are under my skin
And they say
Hey now, hey now, hey now, hey
