The Lyrics

The concept: a filmgoer sitting in the balcony, watching a revisionist version of the classic Western "Shane." (*A cloaca is a cesspool.)
Donkey Shane

Donkey, Shane, ride that donkey, Shane,
Even though it will cause you shame.

Picked my nose in the balcony.
Eat the nasal treat?
Tastes so sweet,
Can't be beat—
On the seat.

Donkey Shane, ride that donkey, Shane.
Grab a hold of its mangy mane.

You might fall; you've got no saddle.
You're nattily dressed,
Town's a mess,
Muddy cess',

Donkey, Shane, ride that donkey, Shane.
Sitting next to that muddy lane,
You can see the town's justice tree,
And that's not a vine
That you're eyein',
It's a line
For hang time.

Donkey, Shane, mind that donkey Shane!
Because it is peeing again,
On the boots that the sheriff wears.
Gives an angry glare,
Got a pair
Of hardware:
Magnums, Shane.

Dummkopf, Shane, you're such a Dummkopf, Shane—
You left your gun back on the plain.
Those Magnums that the sheriff wears?
Well, he draws the pair,
Pulls the hair
Triggers; there's
No repair.

Done for, Shane. Auf Wiedersehen. Done for, Shane.

Donkey Shane, come back! I appreciate anything that even remotely makes fun of Wayne Newton!

this made me go hee-haw-haw-haw...5s...i thought a cloaca was the reproduction/elimination orifice on birds and reptiles

Thanks, all. Alvin, yours is the primary definition of "cloaca."
Doug D-F - September 26, 2011 - Report this comment
Cloaca is the Latin word for sewer and thus by metaphor becomes the avian and herpetological orifice.
