From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Zoo_%28Scorpions_song%29

"The Zoo" is a song by the German heavy metal band Scorpions, written by band members Rudolf Schenker (guitar) and Klaus Meine (vocals). It first appeared on the band's 1980 album Animal Magnetism.The song has been featured on a few of Scorpions "Best-Of" compilations, including Deadly Sting: The Mercury Years, Bad for Good: The Very Best of Scorpions, the box set Box of Scorpions and a re-recorded version for the Comeblack album. The song was released as a single in 1980 but had limited chart success, peaking at #75 in the UK.

Although the song performed poorly on the charts, it is a critically acclaimed heavy metal song. One critic notes "The Zoo" is both "ominously slow and melodically accessible," with a key element being the "Berlin burlesque vocal melody."[1] Schenker wrote much of the song's music during the band's first tour of the United States in 1979. When Meine first heard Schenker's riff, it reminded him of the band's earlier visit to a street in New York City, which was humorously called a "zoo."[1] Meine later composed the song's lyrics, which contain references to city streets - most notably, New York's 42nd Street.

FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 03/04/11:

A student came to a young professor's office hours. She glanced down the hall, closed his door, and knelt pleadingly.

"I would do anything to pass this exam," she said. She leaned closer to him, flipped back her hair, and gazed meaningfully into his eyes. "I mean," she whispered, "I would do anything..."

He returned her gaze, "Anything?"

"Anything."

His voice softened, "Anything?"

"Anything," she repeated again.

His voice turned to a whisper. "Would you ... study?"

The Zoo

Written by Rudolf Schenker (b. 31 Aug 1948) and Klaus Meine (b. 25 May 1948)

Recorded by Scorpions, 1979


The job is done, I go out
Another boring day
I leave it all behind me now
So many worlds away

I meet my girl, she's dressed to kill
And all we're going to do
Is walk around to catch the thrill
On streets we call the zoo

We eat the night, we drink the time
Make our dreams come true
And hungry eyes are passing by
On streets we call the zoo

We eat the night, we drink the time
Make our dreams come true
And hungry eyes are passing by
On streets we call the zoo

Enjoy the zoo
And walk down 42nd Street
You want to be excited too
And you will feel the heat

We eat the night, we drink the time
Make our dreams come true
And hungry eyes are passing by
On streets we call the zoo

We eat the night, we drink the time
Make our dreams come true
And hungry eyes are passing by
On streets we call the zoo
