Johnny come lately, all through the county
They come from the city, out here to Green Hill
Driving like bastards
Stomping the throttle
The buzzards of Green Hill grow fat on road kill.

Little Fuzzy Wuzzy was a baby bear,
Little Fuzzy Wuzzy didn't have no hair,
Little Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn't fuzzy was he
But he didn't give a good hot damn.

Little Ruby had a purry kitty cat
Brother ran him off with a tee-ball bat
Out on the Green Hill the little kitty cat sat
'Til he met a '96 Dodge Ram.

Johnny come lately, all through the county
They come from the city, out here to Green Hill
Driving like bastards
Stomping the throttle
The buzzards of Green Hill grow fat on road kill.

Old John Donovon was drinkin' late
Took his car keys and taunted fate
Swervin' cross the interstate,
Crashed a mother and her son cold dead.

Took John Donovan hucked him in jail
He dipped in his wallet and posted bail
Headed back home before sunrise shine
And slept in his very own bed.

This little piggy won't cast a stone,
This little piggy won't pick the bone,
But these little piggies won't stand alone when justice needs to be fed.

Johnny come lately, all through the county
They come from the city, out here to Green Hill
Driving like bastards
Stomping the throttle
The buzzards of Green Hill grow fat on road kill.

    General Commentthis is obviously about drunk driving, think about it. but the fuzzy wuzzy part, i don't understand. The kitty-cat thing is about some kid scaring a cat with a t-ball bat, and it sat on the road and got hit. Johnny gets arrested, but posts a bill, and he gets let out, but everyone is mad. that's all i know. can anyone clue me in on the fuzzy wuzzy part?

    General CommentI don't really get the song, its about how a girls cat is run over buy a dodge and about johnny who, whilst driving drunk kills a mother and her son.
    "But these little piggies don't stand alone
    when justice need to be fed"
    Maybe les thinks there should be greater punishment for drunk driving?

    General CommentFuzzy Wuzzy is an old English nursery rhyme. Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear
    Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair
    Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn't fuzzy, was he? You can look up the historical significance of it on Wikipedia. I don't know what Les's intention was of adding it to the song though.

    My InterpretationMakes me think of the settling of Western America, small towns in general really, and big business(buzzards) being able to make well off the spoils of little people(road kill) from small settlements who get shafted by regulations set by government city people(Johnny) who make rules seemingly without realizing the implications of said rules

    Or maybe I'm just schizophrenic in my interpretations

    My InterpretationI've listened to this song many times and think I got it down.

    The Fuzzy Wuzzy bear thing is just relating to the small town mentality and innocence of the children, everyone's just hanging out and doing their thing. He didn't give a good hot damn refers to the people in the town not giving a damn about the outside world.

    The chorus gets a bit darker as the song goes on. The verse regarding the cat is just about a kid playing as kids do, chasing a cat around (not advised), etc. The cat's story is ended sadly by some city driver 'driving like a bastard'. The buzzards of Green Hill get fat on road kill (the cat in this instance).

    Next up is another 'bastard' who decides to drive drunk and kill a mother and a child. The little piggy line is more about the 'Fuzzy Wuzzy' town folk being tired of taking shit from the city folk, and they won't "stand alone", and are gonna bring it to these 'city bastards', and the buzzards of Green Hill are gonna get fat on the road kill (which will be the city folk when the Little Piggies are done with them [just needs to be fed]).

    I suppose this song can be as deep or shallow as you want it to be, I like my interpretation.
