"Buffalo" as written by Augustus Figaro Niso Unger-hamilton, Thomas Stuart Green, Joe Jerome Newman and Gwilym David Dylan Sainsbury....
Breathe on me my buffalo
Your eye warms to a warning
Of a death without words

I am here
Laughter swallowing cups of pride
Inside it paints me
With the visions I love
For the future tributes
Our Thom Sonny Green

Breathe on me my buffalo
Your eye warms to a warning
Of a death without words

I am here
Laughter swallowing cups of pride
Inside it paints me
With the visions I love
For the future tributes
A tome sunny green

The buffalo from buffalo
Who are buffaloed by the buffalo
From buffalo
Buffalo are the buffalo from buffalo

And all's above lay
Pay tribute to the future death
Of our tome Sunny green.

    Song MeaningTo understand this song you need to know the verb "to buffalo", which is not very common (more like slang), it means "to bully" someone.

    Also, check this Wikipedia page:
    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…

    Because "Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo" is a grammatically correct sentence in American English, used as an example in linguistics.

    That's what the paragraph "The buffalo from buffalo Who are buffaloed by the buffalo From buffalo Buffalo are the buffalo from buffalo" in the lyrics is referring to.

    You'll notice the Wikipedia page actually refers this Alt-J song as a "use of the sentence in popular culture"...

    General Comment'tome sunny green' is probably actually 'Thom Sonny Green', the drummers name.
