The Lyrics

This is what happens when i stay in my room on a saturday night (writing parodies like this not killing animals)
I slaughtered a hen last night
And two goats and a rabbit
Was singing a song for the rite
It's not savage it's habit

When mutts come my way
They die that day
If I want to heal a broken toe
I kill a weevil

I'm defamed throughout the town
They think I worship Satan
But the cat who is brown
Is the devil I hate him

That cat sacrificed
Would make things nice
That would give me peace inside my soul
But it's too sneaky

"It's no crime", I screamed in court
"To go and worship the way I'd like"
Though hunting's a legal sport
The judge took the pet owners' side
First amendment denied

I slaughtered a hen last night
And a toad and a snail died
How can it be wrong, when it's a rite?
Yet I'm still getting jail time

I wanted a gnu
But no, the zoo
Had to take the spear I would have thrown
It's never easy

Now what can I do
My life is through
If I do not sacrifice a vole
The gods will eat me

"It's no crime", I screamed in court
"To go and worship the way I'd like"
Though hunting's a legal sport
The judge took the pet owners' side
First amendment denied

I slaughtered
I slaughtered a hen last night
And a toad and a snail died
How can it be wrong, when it's a rite?
Yet I'm still getting jail time
