The Lyrics

I am in no way affiliated with the People for Ethical Treatment of Animals. This song is for entertainment purposes only. Purely for fun.
Young man, are you against cruelty?
I said, young man, do you hate the meat industry?
I said, young man, 'cause you love animals,
There's no need for meat-eating...

Young man, I know what you can do,
I said, young man, you can promise us that you,
Are willing to go full vegan right now,
Never consume a pig or cow...

You should join the P.E.T.A.,
You should join the P.E.T.A.,

We're seriously against the eating of flesh,
Carnivorism's a savage mess...

You should join the P.E.T.A.,
You should join the P.E.T.A.,

We've gained notorious fame, people think we're insane,
They find us a little extreme...

Young man, do you want to help animals?
I said, young man, wanna help cut back the annual's,
Number of cattle used each year,
For meat products,

Someone, has to speak out loud,
Eating of meat should not be allowed,
Animals like pigs and poultry feel too,
Would you want to have that happen to you?

You should join the P.E.T.A.,
You should join the P.E.T.A.,

We're seriously against the eating of flesh,
Carnivorism's a savage mess,

You should join the P.E.T.A.,
You should join the P.E.T.A,

We've gained notorious fame, people think we're insane,
They find us a little extreme...

Young man, I once loved pork chops too,
I said, 'till I found the horrible truth,
It came from something that was once alive,
Eating meat was just not right,

That's when I came up with a plan,
And said, 'Animals should not be used by man',
There's a group there, called the P.E.T.A.,
They can help you go vegan today!

You should join the P.E.T.A,
You should join the P.E.T.A.,

We're seriously against the eating of flesh,
Carnivorism's a savage mess!

P.E.T.A, we're all in the P.E.T.A.,

Young man, are you against cruelty?
I said, young man, do you hate the meat industry?

P.E.T.A., we're all in the P.E.T.A.,

Young man, are you against cruelty?
I said, young man, do you hate the meat industry?

P.E.T.A, we're all in the P.E.T.A,

Young man, young man, join us now,
Young man, spare the pig and cow...

Jonathan as usual is very charitable. Did anyone actually try to sing these lyrics? Another hour's hard work is recommended to the author to make better word choices to simulate the original meter without changing the message; and to author and commentators to consider the major ethical and environmental detractions due to raising and consuming mammalian flesh. BTW, singing your lyrics along with YouTube is a great verification step.
