Parody Song Title:

"Should I Bay or Should I Goat?"

Parody Written by:

John A. Barry

The Lyrics

I’m sure that I have ruled out shoat.
Should I bay or should I goat?
I remind: I’ve whined “nein!” to swine,
and I feel likewise about kine,
And I’d never stray to stoat.
Should I bay or should I goat?

Indecision’s got me:
to which I give my fidelity?
Must make up mind and get on track
(I just had a punning attack!)
So upon which will I dote?
Should I hay or should I groat?

Should I bay or should I goat now?
There’s no way that I vote “cow!”
If it’s goat, there is chin stubble,
but if it’s bay, tough hay tumble.
’bout my dilemma, don’t gloat!

This indecision's buggin’ me
(Esta indecisión me molesta)
An equine or porcine sweetie?
(Pero, cual es el mejor para mí?)
A Hamlet-like man is what you see
(El principe: “Qué voy hacer?”)
Wrapped up in “to be” soliloquy
(Es a sí mismo él Hambla [sic])
It’s today I’m gonna vote
(Para un vote a tenir)
I won’t pule; strongly I’ll emote
(Pues, exteriorizarme)

Split!
Condición de mi cerebro

Should try gait or should try pote* now?
(Es la cabra o es la potra?)
If it’s goat, there is chin stubble
(Si es cabra, será rastrojo)
But if it’s bay, tough hay tumble.
(Dificil a montar en el heno)
’bout my dilemma, don’t gloat!
(No quiero verte presumir)
Changed mind’s ruled that it shall be shoat
(Cambio, digo: el puerco)

*shove, kick
