Mike's Big Book of Songs

Home - Squirrels

some folks they like chicken and steak
me, they give me the belly ache
but i could eat a squirrel, i could eat a score
when i get done i could eat a dozen more

'cause there ain't no fat but there's plenty of meat on them
you can laugh at a fella like me for eatin' 'em
joke's on you if you buy your meat from a store
it's a shame what folks pay good money for

some folks they like shootin deer
the got them big ol' trucks and their camouflage gear
but i reckon they're workin' too hard
i never take my gun out of my back yard

there ain't no fat but there's plenty of meat on them
you can laugh at a fella like me for eatin' 'em
joke's on you if you're out in the wood
'cause the best hunting is right here in my neighborhood

now my dad lived til he was ninety two
and he ate squirrels just like i do
never saw a doctor never took no pills
just ate pickled peaches and squirrels

there ain't no fat but there's plenty of meat on them
you can laugh at a fella like that for eatin' 'em
joke's on you, yeah you're smarter than me
but i got a strong heart and clear arteries

i hear in france the french eat frogs
and in some parts folks eat dogs
well if it tastes good i say cook it
if you don't like how it look, well, don't look at it

there ain't no fat but there's plenty of meat on them
you can laugh at a fella like me for eatin' 'em
joke's on you if you never tried it
go on now fella just take a bite out of it

cows do more drugs than athletes
and god only knows what goes in chicken feed
but squirrels, they only eat nuts
so i eat squirrels and nothing but

there ain't no fat but there's plenty of meat on them
you can laugh at a fella like me for eatin' 'em
joke's on you if you buy your meat from a store
shame what folks pay good money for
