But hey, I know the one thing that will make you happy. What's the one thing all zoo animals love when they're sad? [everyone] A LIGHT SHOW!! [wildebeest] That's right. A light show with disco music. Everyone dance! [wildebeest] Living in a zoo can be very sad... People stare at you and make you mad. Oh how I wonder what they would do, if animals stared at them like they were in a zoo... [chorus] How would you like it, when we stare at you? It doesn't it feel good, now isn't that true. How would you like it, when we stare at you? It doesn't it feel good, now isn't that true. [wildebeest] Out of my way you meddling guardsman, for I have a date with her royal highness Lady Stripes. [hyenas] You? A poor homely wildebeest have a date with Lady Stripes? That is so funny a thought, I think we shall laugh now! [lady stripes] Silence! Silence you wretched hyenas! [wildebeest] Oh, my. Suddenly we're very quiet, aren't we? [lady stripes] From this day forward, no one shall mock the kindly wildebeest. (chris: I don't remember the word fat being in the script) [lady stripes] Be gone servants! For you have just insulted my future prince. [wildebeest] Oh, your highness! I am at a loss for words. I guess the only thing left for us to do is kiss each other. (sharon: oh, god!) (chris: I bet the old man never gave you one like that, huh?) [wildebeest] And now, we shall rule the animal kingdom together as man and wife. And here is our first proclamation... No more zoo, no more cages. Only roller skates, disco music, and an occasional light show. So zoo animals rejoice, for we are all free! [chorus] We're zoo animals on wheels, that's what we are. We're zoo animals on wheels, we're proud we've come so far. We're finally free to sing and skate, upon the street and on the lake. We're zoo animals on wheels... - = - = - = - = - = - = - = - = - = - = - = - = - = - = - = - = - APPENDIX VII - SHOW NOTES Get A Life creators Chris Elliott and Adam Resnick were both former writers for Late Night With David Letterman, before leaving to start the new series.
