Pigs, Sheep and Wolves

ŠPaul Simon, released on You're the One, 2000

.

Big and fat

Pig's supposed to look like that

Barnyard thug

Sleeps on straw and calls it a rug

Yeah that's a rug, ok

He's walking down the street

And nobody's gonna argue with him

He's a half-a-ton of pig meat

.

Up in the hills above the farm

Lives a pack of wolves

Never did no harm

Sleep all day

Hunt till four

Maybe catch a couple of rodents

You know a carnivore

.

Sheep in the meadow

Nibbling on some clover

One of the sheep just wanders over

Sits by a rock

Separated from the flock

He's just sitting by a rock

.

Where'd he go? I don't know

Well he was here a minute ago

I don't know

Sheep's dead

Got a gash as big as a wolf's head

Oh god

Big and fat

Pig's supposed to look like that

Wallowing in lanolin

He's rubbing it into his pigskin

Police are going crazy

Sayin' let's get him

Let's get that wolf

Let's get him

Let's get that wolf

Let's get him

Let's kill him, let's get him

Let's kill him

.

Court-appointed lawyer wasn't very bright

Maybe he was bright

Maybe he just had a late night

Yeah it was just a late night

And he files some feeble appeal

And the governor says forget it

It's a done deal

It's election, I don't care, election

Let's give that wolf a lethal injection

Let's get him, let's get him,

Let's kill him, let's get him

Let's kill him, let's get him, kill him

Let's get him and kill him

.

Whew, slow

Here comes the media

With their camera

Asking everybody's opinion

.

About pigs, sheep and wolves

.

Big and fat

Pig's supposed to laugh like that

This is hilarious

What a great time

I'm the pig who committed

The perfect crime

.

All around the world

France, Scandinavia

There's candle light vigils

Protesting this behavior

It s animal behavior

Animal behavior

Its pigs, sheep and wolves

Pigs, sheep and wolves

Pigs, sheep and wolves

It's animal behavior

It's pigs, sheep and wolves
