Song: Christmas at the zoo
By: Flaming Lips 
album: "Clouds taste metallic.

I think these are right... they sound OK to me

On the recording the verses chords are mostly just picked through... This, at
least, appears to be the progression that the lips use use.  they might be 
using less conventional chords in the verse. But chorus wise, i think they 
are just power chords.  Either way.  this seems to be their progression. feel

intro seems to just be lingering on the E


Their wasn't any snow on Christmas eve 
and I knew what I should do, 
  A 	                  E 	
I thought I'd free the animals 
    f#m              B
all locked up at the zoo

I opened up the fence where the peacocks were, 
the lamas were unleashed 
the snakes and seals could all get out, 
but they Refused to leave.... 

(on B they build up using octave intervals)


All of the animals agreed they're not 
happy at the zoos
    c#m    g#m         A       E
But they preferred to save themselves, 
      f#m                 B
they seemed to think they could...

The elephants, orangutans, 
all the birds and kangaroos 
all said thanks but no thanks man, 
but to be concerned is good...

instrumental: same as verse
| E | c#m | A E | f#m B |

It started to snow on Christmas Eve in the 
middle of the night
walking through the state park zoo 
and everything is white...

| E | A | c#m g#m A E | f#m B | E
