A comedy lyric of a weighty love relationship gone sour
Zooie, You're a Hippo by My Side

Verse:

Zooie I see you following me around
Flapping your tent sized yellow dress
My face is turning red and I'm cringing
Pretending that you don't even exist

Verse:

You hit every city diner and fast food place
Chomping on greasy burgers and large fries
Plopping down breaking chairs into pieces
Shaking those earthquake elephant thighs

Chorus:

Girl, I told you time and again it's over
Stop those crocodile tears flowing
All, you ever wanted to do is eat
Now you can't even see you're feet
Girl, haven't you got any pride?
Zooie, you're a Hippo by my side

Verse

Don't sent me any more smiling pictures
Of you slimmer from happier yesterdays
Even if you sign up for Jenny Craig
I'm moving on, it's just way too late

Verse:

I met a girl yesterday at Joe's Bar
A pretty blond blue- eyed beauty size two
I tried to get you to not eat like a pig
Now you look like a Hippo in the zoo

Chorus:

Girl I told you time and again it's over
Stop those crocodile tears flowing
All, you ever wanted to do is eat
Now you can't even see you're feet
Girl, haven't you got any pride?
Zooie, you're a Hippo by my side

Outra Chorus: Talking

Zooie put that gun away
I'm getting down on my knees
Just don't pull the trigger please
It's murder in the first degree
BANG BANG!  Zooieeeeeeeeee!
