The Lyrics

Uptown deer
It is quite a shock to see you here
I bet you never made a back street run
I bet right now you feel under the gun

I wonder why you're an uptown deer
you were living in your forest world
But then they cleared it all for houses, man
And now you're coping with it best you can
It's such a scam

And when you see all
The cars and the grime
I bet you'll take off
Just hoping you'll find

A place that's not so tough
Grass and stuff
Need some grub? You're an uptown deer
You know I've seen you in your peaceful world
Before they ruined it with people toys
And all the essence of their people noise
So what's your choice?

Uptown deer
Well it is quite a shock to see you here
But maybe some day you'll find home again
You understand that this is a dead end
And you can't win

And when you're walking
So proud and so fine
And I am hoping
You'll get out, alive

You see, the city's tough
Traffic's fast
Living's rough
For an uptown deer
You've been living in your whitetail world
Until they up and took the pasture land
And you're re-routed to the downtown, man
Oh what a scam

Uptown deer
You're an uptown deer
Can't believe I saw
It's an uptown deer

My uptown deer
Can't believe I saw
A big uptown deer
An uptown deer
Now get out of Dodge
You're an uptown deer
An uptown deer

Look out! Deer! They possess weapons of mass destruction! They're coming for us! Really poor taste, Royce.

Unique idea...well crafted

Pacholek---Why the hell is a parody about a deer ( a true story, I may add) in the city, lost, in "poor taste"? You know, maybe you should read things before you comment. This is about taking land away from animals, which is happening---I bet it's even happening in New Frickin Jersey.

I read it, and I can relate since deer are a nuisance around my home town.

It certainly is a treat to be able to watch such a graceful animal in the wilderness, and it is unfortunate that we are losing some of that wilderness. Well expressed, Royce.
