  • Zoo time is she and you time
    The mammals are your favourite type, and you want her tonight
    Heartbeat, increasing heartbeat
    You hear the thunder of stampeding rhinos, elephants
    And tacky tigers
    This town ain't big enough for both of us
    And it ain't me who's gonna leave
    Flying domestic flying
    And when the stewardess is near do not show any fear
    Heartbeat increasing heartbeat
    You are a khaki-coloured bombadier it's Hiroshima
    That you're nearing
    This town ain't big enough for both of us
    And it ain't me who's gonna leave
    Daily, exept for Sunday
    You dawdle in to the cafe where you meet her each day
    Heartbeat, increasing heartbeat
    As twenty cannibals have hold of you, they need their
    Protein just like you do
    This town ain't big enough for both of us
    And it ain't me who's gonna leave
    Shower, another shower
    You've got to look your best for her and be clean everywhere
    Heartbeat, increasing heartbeat
    The rain is pouring on the foreign town, the bullets
    Cannot cut you down
    This town ain't big enough for both of us
    And it ain't me who's gonna leave
    Census, the latest census
    There'll be more girls who live in town though not
    Enough to go ground
    Heartbeat, increasing heartbeat
    You know that:
    This town isn't big enough,
    Not big enough for both of us
    This town isn't big enough,
    Not big enough for both of us
    And I ain't gonna leave
