The Lyrics

Don't know what a Pangolin is? You are probably not alone! A low-bitrate mp3 of the song can be found here.
Not a plain one - they’re quite unique
Kinda gold, as such, we’ve punned in song
They got rows of scales - over-lappin’ some
They’re a quirky sight to come upon

Get a pangolin friend
But they’re sharpish things
Better go get gloves, yeah...

Like a pinecone that walks upright
Snufflin’ mounds of his chosen meals you know
Cruisin’ social insects, makes termites disappear
A good feed of ants, is quite worthwhile

Now they all rest obscured
Knowing that you’re near: disperse
‘Cus you know they’ve seen ya

If you’re clever in woods with no frantic treads
And you check at night in tree and ground
Find a hutch and a good spot outdoors
Accept that they know where you are
‘Cus they burrow away, to completely convey
That they’ll avoid ya

(Pangolin playing mandolin here)

I’m enthralled with family ‘Manidae’
Labeling order: ‘Pholidota’
The Africans use them for meat
In China, scales – har-vest-ed, make ‘em frown...

Now, our Pangolin friends
They’re Af-ric-an things
And they’re Asian things
Also !

Longa da claws - Oh yeah, longa da claws
Watcha the claws - Dodge-a the claws!

“Rolled up thingies” is what their name, it means
In Malay, Malay tongue you’ll find, yeah

Handle gloved yeah
With this breed needs gloves yeah
Or they’ll harm ya
Score up your arms yeah

Don a glove yeah
Sport a glove yeah...

leave it to the hobbits to come up with a refreshingly unique concept
