The Temperance Movement – Backwater Zoo lyrics
Baby I would give you all the tea in China
'Cause you're the sweetest little honeybee that I've ever seen
And when the things go wrong
I'll get you smiling by singing my song
Surely we're the kookiest two in a backwater zoo

Something ain't right, I see that your sunshine's fading
I've been dancing all day and you never even raised an eye
You're all uptight but with a little more investigating
I'll find my way on through and you can tickle me too all night

So don't give up, don't give in
Wipe the slate clean and begin again
Send me a thumbs up and I'll send you a smiley face
Don't wear your blues like a noose
You're wear yourself out all your worrying
Honey we got nothing to lose
But if you're begging the question then I'll tell you the truth

Baby I would give you all the tea in China
'Cause you're the sweetest little honeybee that I've ever seen
And when the things go wrong
I'll get you smiling by singing my song
Surely we're the kookiest two in a backwater zoo

Late last night I saw a whole in the sky above me
And it was sucking all my dreams up into the great beyond
I held on tight 'cause I knew my honeybee she loved me
I said good bye bye to my blues and I turned it around, oh yes

Baby I would give you all the tea in China
'Cause you're the sweetest little honeybee that I've ever seen
And when the things go wrong
I'll get you smiling by singing my song
Surely we're the kookiest two in a backwater zoo

So don't give up, don't give in
Wipe the slate clean and begin again
Send me kiss kiss on the lips
And I'll send you cool cats and a rocket ship

Baby I would give you all the tea in China
'Cause you're the sweetest little honeybee that I've ever seen
And when the things go wrong
I'll get you smiling by singing my song
Surely we're the kookiest two in a backwater zoo
Surely we're the kookiest two in a backwater zoo

In a backwater zoo
In a backwater zoo
