lyric transcribed by doc (Jim Radcliff) on 27 July 2017, from the season 1 (1972) version; latest edit: 27 September 2017

Say you wake up in the middle of the night
You got an idea that’s outta sight

So you jump out of bed, look around your room
You gotta write it down and send it to ZOOM

Or say you’ve just seen something on this show
Or someone cool you just gotta know

Write it all down, don’t make a mess
And don’t forget your name and address

Include a stamp so we can drop you a card
Then dip your note in a bucket of lard

Joe doesn’t know what he’s talking about
You put it in an envelope, without a doubt

Then take your typewriter, pencil, or pen
And if you make a mistake you gotta do it again

Write ZOOM Z-double-O-M
Box 3-5-0
Boston MASS 02134

In the season 2, cast 1 of 3, version, line 11 is changed to “David doesn’t know what he’s talking about,” and in the version on the 1974 Come On and ZOOM album, which also features some other variations from the original lyric, lines 11 and 12 go

Lard’s what you use for soap, you dope
You put your note in an envelope
