There in the zoo he stood one night
He's looking like a newspaper
Suddenly a spaceship came
Passing into color vapor

A way up high the saucers land
The zebra seemed excited
He came down from outer space
He had a brand-new neon outfit

Chorus:
Glowing, glowing, neon zebra
Technicolor stars and stripes
Crazy horses, a rainbow rider
Fashion plate for special types

The children gather around
To see the zebra's colored stripes
Dancing like a sunshine clown
Spends his time with fruit cup bites

And all the people are there too
They came to see the colored zebra
Cameras flashing everywhere
Never left the zebra alone

Chorus

So off he went to hollywood
To be a zebra movie star
He rode in a limousine
Put his footprints at the chinese

The children gather around
To see the zebra's colored stripes
Dancing like a sunshine clown
Spends his time with fruit cup bites

Chorus

Up in the zebra's friendly mansion
There is a party going on
Everyone with colored ice
Dancing in the black-light dream

Funny zebra with electric thought
Tangerine and neon blue
Someday the spaceship will return
Give the zebra something new

Chorus
