My friends and I could never figure out what backing vocals are saying in the first part of the chorus - It sounds like "Like an eight ounce fly" but I know that ain't right.

...generally, though there may be others. Lydia
Lunch was a member of the seldom-heard
8-Eyed Spy...not sure why they're referenced in
this song, but I never questions a genius...

Yep, I always thought "See the babies hide behind the bars" was a nice follow-on to the "See the zoo"

The second background vocal line in the chorus sounds to me like "Like a eight-eyed spy." I don't know why it's not "like AN eight-" or if it actually is a tribute to Ms. Lunch's pioneering no-wave band, but hey.

And that line in the second verse (freshly re-listened to, off the Scandal/Sex CD) sounds to me like "See the babies hide behind them bars." I suspect that the "unmarked cars" bit is a live variation Pat used for a yuk, just like how he switches up the names in "Sex Engine" to people he knows, or how "Partytime"'s line "It's better than a cold bath with" has ended with "Nazis on cocaine" or "an oversexed tarantula."
