lyrics

Zebra stripes on the asphalt, white shadow of the grasslands. In the middle of traffic, I stand on one side. Waiting for my moment of crossing seems, we are all thinking of horses, of savanna and of streams. I would like to return to this place I’ve never been. Not in a safari sort of way — wearing hats and glasses, peering through binoculars — but with wind and speed, muscles, wild spectaculars.

I am quite well behaved, I know how to restrain a thought. I clean my spoon, my cup, my hair and all the floors. I hold doors for old ladies and help with strollers down the stairs and when I’m angry I smile, I get up and stack the chairs. I would like to return to this place I’ve never been. Not in a safari sort of way — wearing hats and glasses, peering through binoculars — but with wind and speed, muscles, wild spectaculars.

I’m a perfect pedestrian, obeying rules of traffic and of civil law. A lady
of good breeding, with her heart on a leash. I read books and the paper,
I listen to the radio and on Sundays I go to the theater, or a music show.
I would like to return to this place I’ve never been. Not in a safari sort
of way — wearing hats and glasses, peering through binoculars — but with wind and speed, muscles, wild spectaculars.
