welcome to the jungle exhibit at the city zoo
never mind if the tour guide looks familiar to you
especially when he starts to scream everybody move forward please
and everybody down front might have to get on their

i'm the only one who knows
when he comes and where he goes
how he feels, what turns the wheels
of my sweet axle rose

he's older than every one else at my boarding house
i guess it was inevitable we'd fall in love somehow
i don't ask him about his past, i think he must've had a wife
i'm okay with his silly fake name
who hasn't dreamed of a completely different life?

he's my sweet axle rose


he's got an appetite for destruction of the groceries these days
i can't get him on the treadmill, and he never shaves
if that new kid in the boardin' house
don't stop trying to look up his sleeve
for identifying tattoos, i'm gonna have to ask that, ask that boy to leave


how he comes and what turns the wheels of my sweet axle rose
he's my sweet axle rose
my sweet axle rose
