The Lyrics

Adapted from someone's assumption that his chinchilla is dying when it was shedding and have decided to burn it alive as a result.
When I wake up later on the bedding,
Wide awake, I'm still shedding
When I woke in the middle of his scream
I'm alright, go up stream

Please don't take me, no
don't bake me
Leave me alone please
I'm only shedding

That stupid kid seems to think I'm hazy
I do mind, I think he's crazy
Sweating everywhere at such a speed
What he'll find, none indeed

Please don't soil my day
You need an Olay
And after all
I'm only shedding

Taking me out to the world going through the backdoor
Taking his time

Lying there and sleeping in a tin can
Having an uneasy feeling

Please don't do this to me
I need to be free
And after all
I'm only shedding

Keeping me inside the world with a tiny tin can
Taking my time

Then I found out early in the evening,
I am dead, flames are gleaming
Then I hoped I'm just having a dream
In tin can, tried to scream

Please don't kill me, no
don't burn me
What is wrong with you
I'm only shedding
He should've take it to the vet to be sure and if it is dying, put it down instead of burning it alive.

My Dad, ~JJ~ , brought back to life a hamster, that was taken up to LakeTAHOE, during the Winter via my suitcase. The cold snow put him in Hibernation mode, but I thought him DEAD. So I placed him in my GrandPaw's ~J-ONE's~ cigar box, for burial . . . When ~JJ~ saw what my sister & I were about to do, he asked for the box . . He placed it in the oven, (don' t tell DearHeart! ) set the dial at 200* saying, " I am the Resurrection & the Life. He who believes in Me shall never die, in the name of the Father & the Son & the Holy Spirit, I command thee to rise." What an uberDad ! I miss you so, ~JJ~.

Pretty good. Who the hell keeps hammering you with 1-votes? I can sort-of relate to this when my goldfish died.
