I'm mad...and that's a fact
I found out...animals don't help
 Animal 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.

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.
