The Lyrics

Rats with wings.
Shoot those pigeons right now
Shoot those pigeons right now

Cover me when I shoot
Cover me from bird sh*t
I just knocked them off the trees
I just pissed off those bees
Cover me, dammit please
Pigeons, pigeons, pigeons
Did you know that it is legal to shoot those pigeons

Sock the sox
tick the tack
We can nape those apes
So what about it
There's many things we shouldn't have done
I don't care any more
Dammit, don't you fondle with those pigeons
Pigeons, pigeons, pigeons
Did you know that it is legal to shoot those pigeons

Guns kept shooting
Pigeons' sh*tting
Don't like it but I guess I'm learning

Shoot! - watch those pigeons go down, gutterbirds

Cover me when I shoot
Cover me from bird sh*t
I just knocked them off the trees
I just pissed off those bees
Cover me, dammit please
Pigeons, pigeons, pigeons
Did you know that it is legal to shoot those pigeons

They ate my steak
They drank all my shake
And their waste is dropping

Shoot! - watch those pigeons go down, gutterbirds

Shoot those pigeons
Shoot those pigeons
Shoot those pigeons right now
Garbage disposals with wings.

I agree completely. Those feathered rats make me rethink my liberal positions on both animal rights and gun control. Come to think of it, so does that damn groundhog in Pennsylvania. I cheered when Bill Murray drove it off a cliff in that movie.

Well, my great great uncles helped kill off the passenger pigeons, so I guess I approve of this parody... :-)

(SOTM) Come and visit Trafalger Square in London to see real pigeons! 544.

We need to kill those damned birds to within an inch of their lives!!! These darn things need to go on the endangered species list!!!

(SOTM) Rats with feathers. They *are* cute though.
Michael E Cormier - February 14, 2007 - Report this comment
(SOTM) They're cute when you're feeding them, but when they want to give it back to you on your head( Trust me, I know), it kinda makes me wish that we had the right to bear arms up here. (or even arm bears. Maybe they'd take them out for me. lol) I love all animals, but the ones that crap on me are much lower on my likeness scale. Nice job.

SOTM - One of the funniest songs I've ever heard (and first heard of here on Amiright) is Tom Lehrer's "Poisoning pigeons in the park". I'm gladly passing that along as I'm sure you'll get a kick out of it. :-)

nice parody 555 i hate those feathery sh*t machines.
Phil Alexander - February 27, 2007 - Report this comment
What Peter said: if you haven't already heard "Poisoning Pigeons in the Park", go and find a copy, NOW! While this isn't quite in the same league (not that many are), as Lehrer so wisely said: "But it's not against any religion to want to dispose of a pigeon" :-)

(SOTM) "Dammit, don't you fondle with those pigeons" You have to be kidding. . .oh yeah you are, ha, it's a parody. . .I forgot that reading a lot of this month's entries, this one, being one fo the last few I had to read, was deffinitely one of the top half. . .top 5, I have to debate in my head like I always do, but top half deffinitely.

(SOTM) Now do "Shooting Ninety Pigeons" to "Losing My Religion" - loved the idea Max, and the OS for it, but the repeated chorus loses a couple of points with me - very funny idea though - 555

(SOTM) Here it's seagulls that are a nuisance (I used to call them sewer ducks). Great OS, and your work is improving Max.

SOTM - I can relate, I watched 4 (yes, FOUR) pigeons nearly get run over by one taxi today. The dumb birds can't even fly properly! A lot of people share your view on this topic.

I agree with what I said earlier... Kill those damned birds!

(WILD) Um...can't say I liked that one. Random shooting of animals just because they shat in your eye is funny, but your parody didn't seem to work for me.

It's a problem in Lima, too! I see a few of them have flown here to leave a coating of 1's.

So are you saying "Feed The Birds" isn't one of your favorite songs ? I guess you are. Very funny.
Matthias - May 16, 2008 - Report this comment
I agree with the last to Matthiases. 50 fives? I don't feel too bad about your 30 ones any more... Why do your songs have such extremely high numbers?

(ABC4S) There is something that will scatter pigeons light speed faster than a browning 12 gauge. In many US cities the peregrin falcon has been released in downtown urban areas to control pigeons. It actually helped the species make a come back. The falcons use the high buildings for nesting and feed on the pigeons.

The point to all this is something I saw a few months ago last February. I was near my city's downtown area driving along an access road to an interstate approaching a traffic light. I slowed for the light and noticed about 200 pigeons in this man's front yard. He was feeding them. The man was standing on his front porch and in a flash a falcon going just short of supersonic dove into the throng. It looked like a pigeon explosion. The guy on the porch had paniced pigeons flying into his face. For a few seconds my vehicle was swarmed with the avian variety of rat. Needless to say the falcon got his lunch that day. Shooting them is cool but the ultimate is witnessing a peregrin getting his lunch and it serves that guy right for feeding vermin.

This parody is timeless - it will always make a valid point. Pigeons will go extinct just before the cock-roach. Fresh idea and unique for a parody. Well done Max.

(ABC) I'm getting de ja vu here - I was trying to think of a funny title sub for Losing My Religion involving your pigeons Max, but then I discovered I already did that here! - whoa! - again, a great idea, and I hate them pesky boids

Below Average Dave - May 28, 2008 - Report this comment
(ABC) I think those birds are secretly always planning who to target, looking for the least suspecting victim in which to lay their daily loads. I thought this was one of your better pieces Max, though it's still a bit demented.
