Pigs Sheep and Wolves
by Paul Simon

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, okay
He's walking down the street
And nobody's gonna argue with him
He's a half-a-ton of pig meat

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

Sheep in the meadow nibbling on some clover
One of those sheep just 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 a wolf's head
Oh, God

Big and fat
Pig's supposed to look like that
Wallowing in lanolin
He's rubbing it into his pigskin
Police are going crazy
Sayin', "Let's get him
Let's get that wolf
And 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
Or maybe he was bright
Maybe it was just a late night
Yeah, it was just a late night
And he files some feeble appeal
And the governor says, "Forget it
It's a done deal!"
This election? I don't care, election
We'll give that wolf a lethal injection
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"
Let's get him, kill him, let's get him, let's kill him

Whew, slow
Here comes the media
With their camera
Askin' everybody's opinion
'Bout 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 committed
The perfect crime, ha!
Hahahaha

All around the world
France and Scandinavia
Candle light vigils
Protestin' behaviors
Animal behavior
It's 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
