Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers – Zombie Zoo lyrics
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
Dance down at the Zombie Zoo

She disappears at sunrise
I wonder where she goes
Until the night comes
Fallin' down again
She shows up with her friends
Half alive

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 you wanna do
Is dance down at the Zombie Zoo
Yeah, dancin' at the Zombie Zoo
Yeah, dancin' at the Zombie Zoo
