Charted: 75
  • The job is done and 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 gonna 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 Writer/s: KLAUS MEINE, RUDOLF SCHENKER
