    Cows With Guns lyrics

    Songwriters: DANA C LYONS

    Fat and docile, big and dumb
    They look so stupid, they aren't much fun
    Cows aren't fun

    They eat to grow, they grow to die
    They die to be eaten at the hamburger fry
    Cows well done

    Nobody thunk it, nobody knew
    No one imagined the great cow guru
    Cows are one

    He hid in the forest, read books with great zeal
    He loved Che Guevera, a revolutionary veal
    Cow Tse Tongue

    He spoke about justice, but nobody stirred
    He felt like an outcast, alone, in the herd.
    Cow doldrums

    He mooed we must fight, escape or we'll die
    Cows gathered around, cause the stakes were so high
    Bad cow pun

    But then he was captured, stuffed into a crate
    Loaded onto a truck, where he rode to his fate
    Cows are bummed

    He was a scrawny calf, who looked rather woozy
    No one suspected he was packing an Uzi
    Cows with guns

    They came with a needle to stick in his thigh
    He kicked for the groin, he pissed in their eye
    Cow well hung

    Knocked over a tractor and ran for the door
    Six gallons of gas flowed out on the floor
    Run cows run!

    He picked up a bullhorn and jumped up on the hay
    We are free roving bovines, we run free today

    We will fight for bovine freedom
    And hold our large heads high
    We will run free with the Buffalo, or die...
    Cows with guns

    They crashed the gate in a great stampede
    Tipped over a milk truck, torched all the feed
    Cows have fun

    Sixty police cars were piled in a heap
    Covered in cow pies, covered up deep
    Much cow dumg

    Black smoke rising, darkening the day
    Twelve burning McDonald's, have it your way

    We will fight for bovine freedom
    And hold our large heads high
    We will run free with the buffalo, or die
    Cows with guns

    The President said "Enough is Enough!
    These uppity cattle, it's time to get tough"
    Cow dung flung

    The newspapers gloated, folks sighed with relief
    Tomorrow at noon, they would all be ground beef
    Cows on buns

    The cows were surrounded, they waited and prayed
    They mooed their last moos,
    They chewed their last hay
    Cows out-gunned

    The order was given, turn cows to Whoppers
    Enforced by the might of ten thousand coppers
    But on the horizon, surrounding the shoppers
    Came the deafening roar, of chickens, in choppers!

    We will fight for bovine freedom
    And hold our large heads high
    We will run free with the buffalo, or die
    Cows with guns

    Cows with guns take aim at cane toads
    Hilary Smale and Ben Collins
    10 May, 2013

    The musician behind the hit comedy song, Cows with Guns, has written a song about the cane toad invasion of Australia.

    Dana Lyons had a world-wide hit with Cows with Guns in 1996. He's toured the world, recorded nine albums and written two books. But his latest project has brought him to the Kimberley in North Western Australia to write a song about the spread of the introduced cane toad.

    Cane toads were brought to Australia in 1935 from Hawaii in the hope they would help control the sugar cane pest called a cane beetle. The toads had no impact on the beetle but found they were well adapted to life in their new home in North Queensland. It took decades for toad numbers to build up and spread, but they are now found along the east coast north of northern New South Wales, and have spread across the north of the Northern Territory into the East Kimberley in the last ten years.

    Being toxic and voracious predators, cane toads eat animals smaller then themselves and poison larger animals which try to eat the toads. They have a particularly heavy impact on freshwater crocodiles, goannas and quolls which are prone to being poisoned by eating toads.

    Dana Lyons wrote Cane Toad Muster after touring the Kimberley courtesy of the Kimberley Toad Busters: a community group which tries to slow the advance of the cane toad across the Kimberley by collecting and killing them. Inspired by their efforts and in is his trademark satirical style, Dana's song encourages more Australian's to get involved in "busting" toads.

    The song Cane Toad Muster had it's worldwide Premiere on Kimberley Mornings with Hilary Smale.

    You can watch the video of Dana Lyons' Cane Toad Muster and then listen to the story behind the song.
