The Lyrics

and the mountains are gone..and the lions are gone... and treadwell is gone
he had nothing to do but become a cartoon
as he settled down to quite a white line
he was meaning to phone us, but the Alaskan quota
hasn't called in a very long time
you ate treadwell,
an old grizzly bear but he tasted all right

well I suppose I should mention the bears digestin'
his arms and legs and his spleen
oh he was shreaking as you chewed his head
i sure do want you to know you ate treadwell
thare ain't a grizzly in that land so fine

supplies were in boxes as he sang to the foxes
every day in that salmon run cove
you hated the tourists and just like a purist
he became a calorie trove
and you ate treadwell
a little sooner was better but I don't mind

but I ain't forgettin that you were once tagged
number 141 was your line
as you were eating his heart out
trying to get a better view

since he's been gone his grizzly film came along
I'm gonna write a song every day of the timbit buffet
then you sat down and lay close to there
you knew he was not one of you but he sure tasted good
made a mess of his guts way up there
and you ate treadwell
komodo dragons got nothin on you

there's no if ands or buts i think that Timmy was nuts
every year up there for "his work"
but when the years go by, soomeone else will too die
think of tim and try not to laugh
'cause you ate treadwell
I won't object if you show disrespect

but I ain't forgettin that you were once tagged
number 141 was your line
as you were eating his heart out
trying to get a better view

After all the years I hope it's the same ol' game
since you've been gone no people will carry it on
