The Human Jungle
eyevocal... - Dave Watson - 25Jul2016 8:42 AM
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."

so real to viewers between 1963 and
1965, that hundreds of letters were
received by the studio each week, asking
for his help.

I thought so, too

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

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.
