Walt says of the song: “We Like the Zoo (’cause We’re Animals Too)” is my tribute to the lost art of the novelty song. Songs like “Poison Ivy” and “Yakety Yak”—all those Leiber and Stoller masterpieces—are a big part of my life. I didn’t want to put my name on an album that didn’t have room for that kind of song.”
