about

This song was written for SpinTunes #3, Round 1, where the challenge was to 'write a happy song about death'.

lyrics

There you stand, majestic, at the foot of the glen
Maintaining your composure in the biting wind and rain
Take a good long look around, you'll not be here again
The lorry comes to pick you up tomorrow

You're gonna be my burger
You're gonna be my steak
We'll slice and dice and barbecue you
This evening by the lake

You just look so damn tasty
You great big hairy coo
I wanna run right over there
And lick you

I'm told it will be humane and you'll surely feel no pain
Your short time of discomfort will be my belly's gain
There's not one bit of you will go to waste, I'm glad to say
Your strong tanned hide will make a splendid jacket

You're gonna be my burger
You're gonna be my steak
We'll slice and dice and barbecue you
This evening by the lake

You just look so damn tasty
You great big hairy coo
I wanna run right over there
And lick you

You're gonna be my burger
You're gonna be my steak
We'll slice and dice and barbecue you
This evening by the lake

You just look so damn tasty
You great big hairy coo
I wanna run right over there
And lick you

I wanna run right over there and lick you.
(Moooooo)
