Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Mower is broken; I can't be mowing.
Herbage is pokin' low-flying birds.
Grazing goats springing, grazing goats munching,
Grazing goats flinging herbaceous turds.

Eat it, weeds and all; they've cut down seven
Feet--it was that tall. They thirst for grass.
Spraying their pee jets, they wet my garden.
They'll have more eats yet--my biomass.

It's worse than field blight; this transcends mowing--
Don't take just a bite--they lay it waste.
Graze vegetation, graze things not growing--
Great goat gustation: omnivore tastes.

Well I think it's fine
Bladed fescue grass
Spread it with lime
It's an autumn task...

Just so you know, someone named Zorya Johansen has already contributed Judas Priest's "Breaking the Law" as "Mowing the Lawn."
