Her Next Friend: Music

Girls At The Zoo

(Her Next Friend)
Open source for news of the season
In her social ashtray
Giving me everything but a good reason
With or without delay

Spent the afternoon waiting
And the nighttime, too
Watching and rating
The girls at the zoo

Swam up from the deeps that were frozen
To part waves of a hand
It was far out from what I thought I'd chosen
To misunderstand

Brought down the curtains
Pulled back the shades
One thing's for certain
We had it made

Spent the afternoon waiting
And the nighttime, too
Watching and rating
The girls at the zoo
And not you

Starlight scope with a finder of ranges
Stories I'd known all along
Some of them even turned up in the pages
Of rewriting a wrong


Brought down the curtains
Pulled back the shades
One thing's for certain
We hadn't made
The grade
