# Sun's up, uh-huh, looks OK #

# The world survives into another day #

# And I'm thinking about eternity #

# Some kind of ecstasy

has got a hold on me #

# I had another dream

about the lions at the door #

# They weren't half as frightening #

# As they were before #

# But I'm thinking about eternity #

# Some kind of ecstasy

has got a hold on me #

# I'm wondering where the lions are #

# Wondering where the lions are #

# I'm wondering where the lions are #

# Wondering where the lions are #

# I'm wondering where the lions are #

# Wondering where the lions are #

# Mmm #

Of the last six places I've lived,

Montana was the best.

The snow-covered peaks,

the rolling valleys, the beautiful rivers...

For the first time in my life,

I felt like I was home.

Then Dad dropped the bomb...

We were moving again,

all the way to Florida.

# I'm wondering where the lions are #

# Wondering where the lions are #

# I'm wondering where the lions are #

# Wondering where the lions are #

# I'm wondering where the lions are #

# Wondering where the lions are #

# Mmm #

# Freighters on the nod

on the surface of the bay #

# One of these days

we're going to sail away #

# Going to sail into eternity #

# Some kind of ecstasy

has got a hold on me #

# And I'm wondering where the lions are #

# Wondering where the lions are #

# I'm wondering where the lions are #

# Wondering where the lions are #

# I'm wondering where the lions are #

# Wondering where the lions are #

Mom said it was

so sunny and gorgeous...

that everybody in America

wanted to live there.

Everybody except me.

And as usual, I was out-voted.

My parents gave me the same old pitch

about being the new kid in school.

Mom said I'd make

lots of new friends.

They promised I would love it there.

Whoa. Get him, dude!

Aah!

Had enough, huh, cowgirl?

Hmm? Had enough?

Yeah.

Aah!

I can't hear you, Tex.

Unh! Unh!

Unh!

Aah!

Had enough... Tex?

Yeah. OK?

I've had enough. Aah!

Allow me to be the first to welcome you

to Coconut Cove.

Awesome.

Yeah.

Who's the bad man now?

Who? Who?

One-Baker-six responding.

We're getting a Mother Paula's here.

How about that?

About time you showed up.

Oh, yeah, sorry.

I was dealing with a 443

over on Twelfth Street...

that eventually turned into a 961.

Took me a little while to button it up.

Uh-huh.

Don't you, uh, want to know

what a 443 is?

No, I do not.

I want you to deal with what we got

going on over here.

OK.

They yanked up all my survey stakes.

Filled them in, every last one of them.

They must've snuck in late last night

or early this morning.

OK, can you at least give me

a monetary estimate on the damage done?

What are you talkin' about?

Sir, in order for it to be vandalism...

there has to be some kind

of monetary damage.

Like, something has to be

broken or defaced.

Otherwise, l... I don't know what

to tell you about your stakes.

It ain't about the darn stakes!

It's screwin' up our entire

construction schedule.

I've got to resurvey the whole site

before we can start clearin' and gradin'.

Sir, I copy that...

and I'm gonna keep

my eyes and my ears open...

and I'm gonna talk

to my people on the streets...

and try and get it figured out.

Whatever.

Well, sir, like I said,

I'm gonna do the best I can, OK?

Fine.

Ow.

What's the deal with these holes?

They're holes, all right?

Now come on.

I ain't got all day.

Every new school is different...

but somehow they always seem the same.

And day one was never my favorite.

Good job, Nancy.

Excellent, Zack. All right.

And that was a great job
