Pigs, Sheep and Wolves




Big and fat
Pig´s supposed to look like that
Barnyard thug
Sleeps on straw and calls it a rug
Yeah, that´s a rug, OK
He´s walking down the street
And nobody´s gonna argue with him
He´s a half-a-tone of pig meat

Up in the hills above the farm
Lives a pack of wolves
Never did no harm
Sleep all the day
Hunt till four
Maybe catch a couple of rodents
You know carnivore

Sheep in the meadow
Nibbling on some clover
One of the sheep wanders over
Sits by a rock
Separated from the flock
He´s just sitting by a rock

Where´d he go?
I don´t know
Well he was here a minute ago
I don´t know
Sheep´s dead
Got a gash as big as wolf´s head
Oh God

Big and fat
Pig´s supposed to look like that
Wallowing in lanoline
He´s rubbing into his pigskin
Police going crazy
Let´s get him
Let´s get that wolf
Let´s get him
Let´s get that wolf
Let´s get him
Let´s kill him, let´s get him
Let´s kill him

Court-appointed lawyer wasn´t very bright
Oh maybe he was bright
Maybe he just had a late night
Yeah it was just a late night
And he files some febble appeal
And the governor says forget it
It´s a deal done
Election, I don´t care, election
Let´s give that wolf a lethal injection
Let´s get him, teah get him
Lets kill him, let´s get him
Let´s kill him, let´s get him, kill him
Let´s get him and kill him

Whew, slow
Here comes the media
Setting up their camera
Asking everyone´s opinion
About pigs, sheep and wolves

Big and fat
Pig´s supposed to laugh like that
This is hilarious
What a great time
I´m the pig who commited
The perfect crime

All around the world
France, Scandinavia
There´s candle light vigils
Protesting this behavior
It´s animal behavior
Animal behavior
It´s pigs, sheep and wolves
Pigs, sheep and wolves
Pigs, sheep and wolves
It´s animal behavior
It´s pigs, sheep and wolves

Comentarios: Simon aborda la pena de muerte a través de un homicidio en un corral. "No estoy seguro si la pena de muerte es una buena o mala idea", dice. "Pero si vas a ser condenado con pena de muerte, asegúrate de matar a la persona adecuada".
"El titulo origonal de la canción era "Sheep, Pigs and Wolves", pero cuando la cantaba, siempre me salia al reves, asi que lo cambie" confesó Simon.
El argot de la canción se inspiró en los juegos de escondite que juegaba con su hijo de 2 años Grabiel.
