about

This song, as well as Through My Eyes, first appeared on The Desolation Sound III compilation CD. Kirsten asked me what I had in mind for the sax solo and I told her I wanted to hear an elephant. She split a reed getting it for me. I'd love to see World Wildlife Federation or Green Peace have this one. I'd sign the rights away in a heartbeat ... And blesses to the real master xoRJ

lyrics

B-r-r-o-o oow .. yeah …

Somewhere a lion's roaring in the distance
Nearby a monkey cries out in the night
The neighbours live in constant fear
There's nothing they can do
They sense and feel the master of the zoo

The river's thick, she's runnin', lord, she's twistin'
She'll toss her toys like wild rivers do
Throw toxins in the ocean
No ripple of emotion
Small presents from the master of the zoo

Who wants to be the master of the zoo
Make mistakes, beat the earth black and blue
Be responsible for all the wildest nightmares that come true
Who wants to be the master of the zoo

The sun is hot ... so white it makes you blister
Yeah, mister it's just coming down on you
You're deadly when you deal
For the things you cannot steal
Small wonder for the master of the zoo

Who wants to be the master of the zoo
Make mistakes, beat the earth black and blue
Be responsible for all the wildest nightmares that come true ..

Who wants to be the master of the zoo
Make mistakes, beat the earth black and blue
Be responsible for all the wildest nightmares that come true

Who wants to be the master
Who wants to be the master
Who wants to be the master of the zoo

We didn't get to test drive "Friday Night" the way we wanted to. Mr./Ms. Universe stepped in. 2020's Covid Cutie. "Sweet Tooth" is currently home to at least six tracks that will appear on our upcoming seventh release entitled "Piece Of Your Ghost". I'm currently close to release of two new singles for our "Or In Cyprus" collection. Just one release to date. Lonely soul ... needs pals. xoRJ ... more
