  • I'm mad...and that's a fact
    I found out...animals don't help
    Animal think...they're pretty smart
    **** 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.

    They're never there when you need them
    They never come when you call them
    They're never there when you need them
    The never come when you call them down down down down.

    I know the animals...are laughing at us
    They 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 never come when you call them
    They're never there when you need them
    The never come when you call them down down down down.

    They say they don't need money
    They're living on nuts and berries
    They say animals don't worry
    You know animals are hairy?
    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 have untroubled lives
    They think everything's nice
    They like to laugh at people
    They're setting a bad example
    (go ahead) laugh at me.
