The Lyrics

Numbers 22:22-35 - Balaam, son of Beor, beats his donkey for not travelling on the road. After the third time, Balaam is able to see the angel that has been standing in the way with his sword drawn. Incidentally, Joshua 13:22 mentions that the Israelites kill Balaam.
His ass saved Balaam

Oh, one donkey
Will sometimes know
If you don't want to die
Mules don't ignore
(He might know, he might know, he might know)

Angels don't play
They may cut you to parts
Well don't go changing your mind
When you should be changing your heart

When your donkey's been spanked
You've been kicking him cruel
Should maybe open your eyes
Might find you've played the fool

If you don't wanna be one headless man
Get off of your ass and do what's right again
(You should know, you should know, you should know)

Yeah, the ass saved the bum

Hey, one donkey
Will sometimes know
If you don't want to die
Mules don't ignore
(He might know, he might know, he might know)

I said one donkey
Will sometimes know
If you don't want to die
Mules don't ignore
(He might know, he might know, he might know)

He gave it a shove
Pulled the bit in his mouth
But when that mule wouldn't move
He started to pout

He should have looked there instead
Tried harder to see, yeah
Cause then maybe he and
His ass would agree

You look with your eyes think you're smart
Might not see the knife unless you look with your heart
(You should know, you should know, you should know)

Oh, his ass saved Balaam

I warn you
But you can't see what hurts you
Donkey see, human fool

You can go
There's the road
You can choose, you might lose
What hat sits upon

Hey, one donkey
Will sometimes know
If you don't want to die
Mules don't ignore
(He might know, he might know, he might know)

I said one donkey
Will sometimes know
