The Lyrics

Leader of the Pack

[Spoken]
Are we really going to follow him?

But of course, why do you ask?
You know that we act unquestioningly.
Gee, it will be great, diving with him.

Yeah, this cliff drops straight to the bay.

By the way, where did you meet him?


Met him at the cliff above shore,
He turned and said, "Just follow me."
He's got charisma. (Yes, we see.)
We'll all fall with the leader of the pack.

We jump together, go crashing down (down, down).
We'll all go cascading and hit the ground.
(He'll say, "Follow me," and we'll all go cascading and hit the ground.)

Some say it's just a fad;
I'm gonna be like dad,
Who jumped with my mom and leader of their pack.

Before my dad jumped he said, "You too
Will jump off a cliff—that's what we do.
(It's in our genes, and it is simply something that we all do.)
I stood there and asked him why.
He said, "Don't ask, just fly."

I await word from the leader of the pack.


Spoken:
We're 'bout ready to kiss it goodbye.
The urge is beginning to grow.
As we drive toward the precipice so high,
We're just about to go
Over the edge, to our fate below.

Jump down! Jump down! Jump down! Jump down!


I felt so weightless then as I flew
Through the air with my friends and my siblings too.
It's cool flying through the air;
The rocks below are hard and bare.
And now we splat with him: the leader of the pack.

Leader and his pack—now they're gone.
[Repeat and fade]

I realize that by voting the way everynoe else is voting that I'm following the Lemming Effect, but the song deserves fives.
