lyrics

DON’T EAT YOUR FRIENDS
words Bert Miller and Ryan Hamilton
music Ryan Hamilton and Leon Boydon

A bear caught a fish and he told me to eat some.
He said, “It’s ok to kill things that don’t have fur.
It’s ok to kill things that don’t have expressions,
they’re not even animals.”
But just because he isn’t crying,
doesn’t mean he’s smiling.

[BEAR]
A MAN COME TO SIT WITH ME HE DIDN’T EAT THE FISHES.
HE SAID, “YOU DON’T HAVE TO EAT THEM. JUST EAT BEANS”
HE SAID, “I’VE GOT A BIG BRAIN.” AND HE TOLD ME TO LISTEN TO HIM
HE SAID, “DON’T EAT YOUR FRIENDS.”

Don’t eat your friends!

It’s in your nature.
I could teach you.
But I won’t.
Well I can’t.
No.

Chewing on the cud the cow is a good girl.
I want to be a good boy so I can chew it too.
But you can’t stroke a cow with a dead cow inside you!
You can’t chew the cud with beef on your breath!
You can’t roller-skate in a buffalo herd.
You can’t eat your friends!

The crocodiles are taking babies breaking up the families.
To sit there with their bellies doing nothing more.
Well I could take a knife and fork and poke it in your numbskulls
but you can’t eat your enemies.
You can’t eat your enemies!
You don’t eat your friends!
You wouldn’t eat your mother!
