I'm mad and that's a fact
I found out animals don't help
Animals think they're pretty smart
Shit on the ground, see in the dark

They wander around like a crazy dog
Make a mistake in the parking lot
Always bumping into things
Always let you down, down, down, down
Eh, eh, eh, eh

Animals think they understand
Most of them are a big mistake
Animals want to change my life
I will ignore, I don't know such place

They're never there when you need them
They're never there when you call them
They're never there when you need them
They're never there when you call them down
Down, down, down

I know the animals are laughing at us
Don't even know what a joke is
I won't follow animal's advice
I don't care if they're laughing at us

They're never there when you need them
They're never there when you call them
They're never there when you need them
They're never there when you call them down
Down, down
Eh, eh, eh

They say they don't need money
They're living on nuts and berries
They say animals don't worry
They're living on nuts and berries

You know animals are hairy?
They say animals don't worry
They think they know what's best
They're making a fool of us

They ought to be more careful
They're setting a bad example
They say animals don't worry
They're living on nuts and berries

They're setting a bad example
They ought to be more careful
You know animals are hairy?
They're living on nuts and berries

They want to know what's best
They're making a fool of us
They ought to be more careful
They're setting a bad example

They like to laugh at people
They're setting a bad example
They have untroubled lives
They think every thing's nice

They say they don't need money
They say animals don't worry
They're living on nuts and berries
You know animals are hairy?

They think they know what's best
They're making a fool of us
They like to laugh at people
They're making a bad example

They say they don't need money
You know animals are hairy?
They're living on nuts and berries
They say they don't need money
They're setting a bad example
