Pig sucked on a cigarette
and mucked the stable. Draped a cable
'round the farmers neck and pulled
and called the vet who galloped 'round.
Pronounced him dead. They laid the table.
Turned the spit and baby kitten chewed a finger,
lingered on a leg
and licked his paws.
It's good to be a carnivore!
It's neat to be a carnivore!

Passed the plate with farmer's head on.
Sheepy shook a fist and said
he looked like John the Baptist.
Piggy did the twist said `Try me - I'm salami'.
Threw the garlic salt and waltzed across the floor.
They stuck their forks in.
They ate him raw.
It's good to be a carnivore!
It's neat to be a carnivore!

    General CommentOne of my all time LPD favourites. Kind of a perverted vegetarian manifesto, probably inspired by Orwell’s Animal Farm. It’s bleakly funny and both versions are great. Dark, almost gothic guitar riffs and funky basslines.
