The Lyrics

I'm not too fond of chipmunks, either. This one is for Malcolm Higgins.
(instrumental and vocal group opening)

Up with squirrels!
With buck teeth, beady eyes and tail that curls!
I'll bet they think they can feed off this guy!
I'll bet nobody ever told them why!
I cannot lie!

I'm fed
up with squirrels!
They make me go through lots of moods and churls!
I've taken just as much as one guy can!
I'm gonna call exterminator man!
You bet I am!

Because those creatures
they're leechers with nuh-wuh-wuts!
They're procreating!
I'm hating their guh-wuh-wuts!

Yeah, you see, I'm at the end
of my rope, so now why pretend?

I'm fed
up with squirrels!
They mess my car and scare off all my girls!
I'm gettin' tired of losing my dates!
So why should squirrels get to have their mates?
I'll bring their fates!

(vocal group break)

Up with squirrels!
Finally listened to the wisdom's pearls!
Because exterminator's coming in!
He knows just how to fix the fix I'm in!
And he will win!

Why had I waited?
I wasted my ti-yi-yime!
But now he's comin'
he's hummin' so fi-yi-yine!

Yeah, he'll clean up rodent mess!
Hire him, he's the very best!
He'll clean

Up the squirrels!
Take my advice and also my referrals!
If you don't want them 'round, well, here's the plan:
Just hire my exterminator man!
Oh, yes, you can!

(vocal group break)

Up with squirrels!
I'm fed up with squirrels!
Well, don't you know, I got tough!
I'm fed up with squirrels!
Fed up with squirrels!
Well, don't you know, I got tough!
I'm fed up with squirrels!
Fed up with squirrels!
Well, don't you know, I got tough!
I'm fed up with squirrels!
Fed up with squirrels!
(repeat 'til fade)
"We have no deal with the squirrels!" -- George Costanza (Jason Alexander), "Seinfeld"

Whoever gave you ones must think you are an animal hater. Well, they can be a nuisance. Ever get raccoons in your yard? They are cute, but can be noisy and destructive.

rodents in general are a little creepy in my book...fun parody

Squirrels are stupid animals, they bury their nuts to store them, only to forget it the next day.

Excellent jaunty sing-along with great pacing and humor, but the subject matter--a bit squirrely

Fun stuff, Mike...but I still can't come to terms with how you Americans rhyme "squirrels" with "girls"; in my world, it's pronounced "skwi-rlls"....555

2Eagle: Never had racoons. Though we did once have a chipmunk that ran away from one of our cats, right under the legs of our dog. Next day, I saw a chipmunk squashed on the side of the road. No one will ever convince me it wasn't the same chipmunk. (Hence my opening comment.) Kristof: It's a Billy Joel song. He thinks "pizza" ends with an R.

I don't think exterminators do squirrels, do they?
