Aldous Harding - Zoo Eyes Lyrics




Why, what am I doing in Dubai?
In the prime of my life
Do you love me?
Cried all the way through
Zoo eyes, zoo eyes, zoo eyes

Zoo eyes, ask for me and you shall receive
Opulent fair, all rain is beads
That drain to where the mother shell meets the sea

I drove my inner child to a show
It talked all the way home
And the nectar
Zoo eyes, zoo eyes, zoo eyes

Zoo eyes, ask for me and you shall receive
Opulent fair, all sound is bees
That drift to where the covered tree has no leaves

Nice, nice to have remembered, well, a pin
A colourful bride, they are magnificent
Do you love me?
Again, again in the morning
In the light, a playing fight
And the nectar, Dubai, Dubai
Zoo eyes, zoo eyes, zoo eyes

Zoo eyes, ask for me and you shall receive
Opulent fair, all fear is green
It sits above the classroom of your dreams
Zoo eyes, ask for me and you shall receive
Opulent fair, all love is fleece
It leaves a cold lamb laughing in the breeze

It's the greatest show on Earth you shall receive
It's the greatest show on Earth you shall receive
It's the greatest show on Earth you shall receive
It's the greatest show on Earth you shall receive
It's the greatest show on Earth you shall receive
It's the greatest show on Earth you shall receive
What am I doing in Dubai?

    She's David Bowie and Laurie Anderson's love child.

  17. Coenraad .K

    The Genius returns.

  18. Frank Morgan

    she's really weird, but in the best way possible. it's refreshing to see a talented artist like her marching on her own pace instead of doing the same old shit everyone does

    aldous harding is a genius

  19. chris mullen

    Do you have any idea what's coming?

    Death from the Seventh Seal knows something you don't. Sucker.

  29. Fine Grit Music

    If you ever just wanna hug it out though, I got you!

  30. Calin Amariei

    The music video and the high voice parts remind me of The Wicker Man and its soundtrack. Y'all think she might have been inspired by it?

    Kerry B

    the fool costume is totally wicker man!

    ROGUEROUGE

    definitely a huge folk horror influence.

  31. TheBluearmy33

    I'm so obsessed with Aldous! I may need help yet I don't want any. I'm hooked for life.💜

  33. Dominic Shaw

    Even the Lamb Minder gets a credit! So gloriously weird.

  34. Mario Monge

    I think she has schizophrenia

  35. wax and wane

    I cant wait to see what she decides to do with the weight of planets❤🔥

  36. John Sánz

    There's something quite hypnotising about all her videos, find myself coming back to them again and again.....

  37. ROID

    the "zoo eyes, zoo eyes, zoo eyes" part sounds a lot like the "didnt I, didnt I, didnt I" from cheap tricks I want you to want me

  38. LifeWithoutMak

    It says after "You shall recieve" what I think is purple lover but on genius it says oppulent fair. is it oppulent fair?

    Bliss

    Purple lover just wouldn't make sense ; )

    LifeWithoutMak

    @Bliss Could it though? I mean does oppulent fair make sense? By all means explain ; )

    Bliss

    @LifeWithoutMak that was a joke! It's definitely opulent fair, don't know why.

    LifeWithoutMak

    @Bliss overall this is the first time i cant seem to crack an aldous harding song. They said the barrel was a mystery but theres a lot about this i wonder, such as the 2 figures behind her, the spinning dirt circle, etc.

    Bliss

    @LifeWithoutMak I think this album in particular sounds mostly like a load of random words and phrases. Which is ok.

  39. Waldemar

    Better and better and better.

  40. Marc Hoebel

    Can't wait to see you performe at Feierwerk Munich in November... LOVE MARC ❤️ 🎸..

  41. 茉鈴小石

    Androgyny!~! A Universal Blessing in disguise. Great words and Produce for Culture and, and EXPLORATION! i guess...what a nice song!

  42. Scott Carley

    Elddis Harding walk the fine line between insanity and humanity she's perfectly balanced yet somehow you cannot understand one word she says but you can feel every word and your soul

  43. chris mullen

    Messin' around with things we don't understand

  44. Paul marsh

    Some people take things to the max but that's only the halfway point for Ms. Harding

  45. Raamses Díaz

    Why so scary?

  46. Smintjes

    I heard this on Belgian radio while driving on an empty motorway at night. Mesmerizing...

  47. meatrace

    This is bad and you should feel bad.

    Bliss

    Please elaborate

  48. B Marshalsea

    Something a bit Wickerman about this.

  49. Audreona Harrell

    This video reminds me of my weird dreams.

  50. G D Revell

    Just fucking gorgeous😍

  51. Hatboy Al

    This video was an acid trip

  52. Bliss

    I also regularly forget my PIN

  53. dedclownsRfunny

    Unoriginal, fake quirkiness, insipid, lame... sorry I don’t dig at all.

  54. Blake Asunder

    👁 👁
    👄

    I'm gonna go get my shoe shine box...

  55. jgjayhawk

    I only recently learned of Aldous Harding. I’m currently watching ALL of her videos and downloading ALL of her music. I’ve had the Designer album on repeat since purchasing it. Wow!

  56. Sinister But Happy

    Why, what am I doing in Dubai?
    In the prime of my life
    Do you love me?
    Cried all the way through
    Zoo eyes, zoo eyes, zoo eyes
    Zoo eyes
    Ask for me and you shall receive
    Opulent fair
    All rain is beads
    The drain to where the mother shell meets the sea
    I drove my inner child to a show
    It talked all the way home
    And the nectar
    Zoo eyes, zoo eyes, zoo eyes
    Zoo eyes
    Ask for me and you shall receive
    Opulent fair, all sound is bees
    That drift to where the covered tree has no leaves
    Nice
    Nice to have remembered, well, a pin
    A colourful bride
    They are magnificent
    Do you love me?
    Again
    Again in the morning
    In the light, a playing fight
    And the nectar
    Dubai, Dubai
    Zoo eyes, zoo eyes, zoo eyes
    Zoo eyes
    Ask for me and you shall receive
    Opulent fair, all fear is green
    It sits above the classroom of your dreams
    Zoo eyes
    Ask for me and you shall receive
    Opulent fair, all love is fleece
    It leaves a cold lamb laughing in the breeze
    It's the greatest show on Earth you shall receive
    It's the greatest show on Earth you shall receive
    It's the greatest show on Earth you shall receive
    It's the greatest show on Earth you shall receive
    It's the greatest show on Earth you shall receive
    It's the greatest show on Earth you shall receive
    What am I doing in Dubai?

  57. ALenaFan Page

    She is magnificently weird!

  58. Karolina Mrowiec

    I love her smile!!!

  59. SagaciousRex

    How may muppets died in the making of this video?

  60. Duan Torruellas

    Shes beautiful, but this video is creepy as hell.

  61. Tiffany Franks

    Looks like Shelly Duvall in the shining

  62. Adam Work

    Well guess Halloween is coming up anyways

  63. XNO OLIN

    My new morning smoke song

  64. Eve

    I love Shelley Duvall

  65. bunch of cunch

    I feel like Baxter Dury would really like her

  66. Wicked_Girl_ 123

    Kindness is the greatest wisdom... I feel that deeply from this artist. I don’t know when was the last time I felt so comforted by something.

  67. Robert St. Charles

    Truly amazing ... beautiful.

  68. Regina Heffington

    I love you Aldous Harding!

  69. gabralela

    I love your artwork, it is something special in you A.H.

  70. cocteautwinned

    I love her so much it hurts

  71. Zoya G.

    i love this woman

  72. N.Z. Storm Waver

    Love the flute in this song.

  73. Ch Ku

    if she starts any kind of religion, i will join. <3

  74. Hunter Yadon

    Saw her live at the Olympic in Boise Idaho and asked her to sign my vinyl I purchased. She looked at me like a cow looks at an oncoming train and said, “Did you even watch the show...” and walked away. I wish I could return the entire signed album, what a peach she was. @4AD @Aldous Harding

  75. Corbin Boller

    Beautiful

  76. lee32476

    Does anyone have accurate lyrics for this song? I’ve see a few online sources quote the chorus as “zoo eyes, ask for me and you shall receive. Opulent Faire...”. It really doesn’t look like she’s saying Opulent Faire. It looks more like “purple” something, maybe “oeuvre”. Killer song, love the horns at the end, as well as the building harmonies.

    h s

    With a New Zealand ear, I'm hearing "Purple and fur", suggesting regal attire or maybe the cross between animal and luxury..?

  77. brine burris

    to brush against madness, and pull back each time before it sucks you in

  78. fourtwenty fourseven

    This could be blasphemy but something about the way she handles the vocal melody reminds me of fucking Len - Steal My Sunshine

  79. J C

    Way cool

  80. Usuario 1

    The black character reminds me of O Marinheiro by the Matacandelas played mostly in Medellín and Bogotá. Super haunting.

  81. Syrena Xhaferi

    thats a man

  82. Eleanor Sciolistein

    Oh Sweet Nuthin' by The Velvet Underground anyone? Beautiful song in its own right, but Lou Reed deserves a writing credit on this one...

    Al Quinn

    oh no, you're one of _those_ people...

  83. Stephen Addeo

    Yes, as a matter of fact, I do.

  84. Catzburguer

    Aldous will eventually write a children book.

    The kids Will Love It
    The fathers will try to burn asap

  85. Oriana Freitas

    she´s so sexy without knowing it...

  86. Mellia Boom Bot

    this scared me. the lamb was nice tho (to look at not eat)

  87. Abel

    I love her music but I really hate her music video imagery.

  88. drapeblind

    From what I can tell, the video begins with the character committing suicide. She splits into the Superego and the Id, the latter wanders purgatory while the other settles in to the confident despair of limbo.

    Bliss

    That's deep shit

  89. Johmathan .B. Swift

    You have your own sound.
    Don't change it.

  90. Robin Hoodie Radio

    Quite the original artist Aldous is.

  91. Miranda Temple-Smith

    Aldous I love you

  92. yiruim

    Aldous Mockasin

  93. Sa Wille

    really cool location - anyone know where this was filmed?

    hilmir

    Otautahi

  94. Tim Sanchez

    Damn, it's been 5 days and still playing this contageous tune nonstop

  95. fon ducci

    Reminds me of Ween's Did You See Me

  96. Tiffany Franks

    It’s like Bowie , Beck and Nico

  97. cu4cakke

    im in love

  98. Agua N

    My fave aunt is back! ❤❤❤🌂
