The Lyrics

We are lemmings, frost adore
On tundra we breed many more
And our lives are such, you cannot comprehend
Now we're hardy herbivores
So we've been growing incis-ors
Though it won't be long until we meet our end

No, we're not mice
But we're rodents all the same (yo!)
Yes we play in ice
But look, we don't complain
We're not halfwits, we are not silly things
We are throngs (throngs)
We're not invisible (invisible)
We are lemmings!

You'll offend and make me shaky
"It's still winter? Please don't wake me!"
We're inhabitin' in chiefly tunnelled holes
Propagatin' 'neath the norther
Borealis-y aurora
And it's often we're mistaken for the voles

Yes, we are white
(But in winters only, framed) (woah)
Yes we take a flight
When we're too densely claimed
Arctic hassle - why do we not have wings?
Rush along! ('long)
We are dispensable (dispensable)
We are lemmings!

We are lemmings watch us go
See us trav'ling floe to floe
As we spread our lemming swarms across the land
But with those damn Eskimo
We avoid them don't ya know
They kill us for to clothe and feed their clan

Woah, our demise
Is a quick plunge down to pain (Nooo!)
Yes, it ain't too wise
(We should have took a plane!)
We are hapless, why weren't we graced with wings?
We all gnaw
Arvicolinaeble
We are lemmings
We are lemmings
We aren't a-fjord-able
We've no brawn!
We are lemmings
Actions defensible
We're not wrong
We are lemmings...

Lots of fun! "A-fjord-able" is my new favorite word of the day!

I guess if the world gives you Lemmings...you make Lemmingade...At the risk of sounding like someone lacking in knowledge, I must admit I' ve never heard of these, .. very entertaining and humorous job, here

So good--with too many great lines to quote! Concur with Arwen re the top homophonic neologism of the week! One thing... didn't grok "Arvicolinaeble".. was that a dig at Avril Lavigne's lemmingesque fans?

wonderful M and P - the whole third verse was a highlight - this would make a good video - 555

Thanks all :) TJC, the word you asked about is described thusly : "Together with the voles and muskrats, Lemmings make up the subfamily Arvicolinae". No, I didn't know either :)
