Shonen Knife – Concrete Animals lyrics

Generally speaking every park has them
Commonly they are at the sand box
Occasionally they are vandalized by someone
They are painted many colors
Elephant, raccoon, tiger

Concrete animals,
Concrete animals
Can I ride on your back
Concrete animals,
Concrete animals
Let's take a picture together

They are too big to carry back home
They are too heavy for me to move
After the sun sets they have a secret party
Nobody knows they dance together

Pony, rabbit, zebra

Generally speaking, they make the children happy
Commonly they are playing at the park
But if it is dirty and dangerous
Where can the children play together?

(this extra verse was included on a european release. I think it makes the song darker, less childlike, less shonen knifey happy. Better to wrap it up with the secret party!)

Concrete animals,
Concrete animals
Can I ride on your back
Concrete animals,
Concrete animals
Let's take a picture together
