The Lyrics

i'd like to see comments on this just remember i'm not promoting the actions of the narator of this song in case it isn't obvious which it should be.
It's grand to see lots of oil spill
I pray, that mantises get killed
Chopping trees gives me great delight
I've started fires to wipe out forest life
My plastic goes in the ocean
Every day, I will be litterin'
I'm off the Florida coast
I'm no wimp, I'll do what I love most

Shoot that big sea cow
Shoot that big sea cow
Shoot that big sea cow
Shoot that big sea cow

That manatee's gone to Davy Jones
And right now I'm gonna toss some stones
At the geese just passing by
Now the coast guard has arrived oh my
They put my arms, right behind my back
Took me to shore, they won't cut me any slack
They look down on all my violent deeds
Off to court, since I was simply

Shooting a sea cow
Shooting a sea cow
Shooting a sea cow
Shooting a sea cow

Can't understand why they take me away
It's inhumanity
It has no feelings, it doesn't think
It's just a manatee

Well done, well done, nice and cynical, just the way I like 'em. Now about that huge space under it.....

Sometimes cynicism is the best way to get someone's attention. Good job. Obviously by the one votes here not everyone reads the comments at the top of the parody. What are they doing voting? They can't even read.

Guy- that Ones voting has nothing to do with the subject. There are many people who just like to screw the voting system. I and many others get hit regularly by Ones Guys

At least he didn't kill the whales. And Guy's an environmentalist - who knew? Nice write.

Not quite Bob. I don't believe in animal rights over human but to kill just to kill or for profit as in killing baby seals is just wrong. Man was given the right to rule over the animals and the planet by God. He should do it as God would. God is going to trash the planet anyway as is told in prophecy. He will make it new again as also told in prophesy. Our jobs are to be good stewards of God's resources. If this is being an environmentalist then I guess you can call me that.

Guy, you should know by now not to take me so seriously - but thanks for not disappointing me - I knew you couldn't be a member of Green Peace (and even I think PETA goes too far). While this agnostic would love to engage you in the God conversation, we'll wait to you come to NYC for that. Since you brought it up, how do you explain Noah and the Ark? Afterall, if there is a God, why did he only save the animals?

Darn! Now I have to ditch my unfinished eating a sea otter parody... ;-)

Sorry - Robert - This is not the place for this debate. I should not have even said what I did say on this subject. But just a quicky. You asked why did God only saved the animals? He saved two of each species to procreate each species and seven human beings on the Ark. Had he not saved these humans we would not be having this conversation right now. And I have no plans to visit NYC any time soon. Not that I wouldn't enjoy a vacation, but it's just not in the plans.
