Ich möchte ein Eisbär sein/I want to be a polar bear
im kalten Polar/at the cold North Pole
dann müßte ich nicht mehr schrei´n/Then I wouldn’t howl anymore
alles wär so klar/everything would be all right.

Eisbären müssen nie weinen./Polar bears must never cry.

Eisbär is a 1981 Europop hit by the now defunct Swiss band Grauzone. There’s a cover by French band Nouvelle Vague, here. Photos by Mr. NEV who may or may not have been singing the German language 80s hit as we strolled the zoo grounds.

  1. Love the big paw photos!

    We’ve got a similar tunnel at the Detroit Zoo, and it’s great when the polar bears are playful enough to get some decent shots of them. I can spend hours sitting them and shooting photos when they’re out to play :)
