The Lyrics

Sha la la la la la la la
Sha la la la la la la la
Sha la la la la la la la

When I'm in the pet store
It's not puppies that I'm there for.
And it's not a kitty
Though I will admit that they're pretty.
Goldfish and canaries
Might serve others well
But the pet that I want
Has got a bony shell.

I really want an armadillo
That would be the greatest thrill, oh.
Where can I get an armadillo?
They are the only pet for me.

Please let me have an armadillo.
Of them I'll never have my fill, oh.
Why can't I have an armadillo?
They are the only pet for me.

Sha la la la la la la la
Sha la la la la la la la
Sha la la la la la la la
They are the only pet for me.

Over twenty species.
But so few of them you or me sees.
Order of Xenarthra.
They're much nicer than a giraffe, yah.

They can swim and burrow,
One type rolls in a ball.
Mainly insectivorous.
Oh, how I love them all!

I really want an armadillo
I think that would be really brill-o.
Where can I get an armadillo?
They are the only pet for me.

Please let me have an armadillo.
I'd let it sleep on my windowsill, oh.
Why can't I have an armadillo.
They are the only pet for me.

Sha la la la la la la la
Sha la la la la la la la
Sha la la la la la la la
They are the only pet for me.

Sha la la la la la la la
Sha la la la la la la la
Sha la la la la la la la
They are the only pet for me.

I'd like to give you a five for this Armadillo parody, but first I have to design my own Capital One credit card!
