An animal rights activist named Elsie,
Arrested for tagging leather coats.
“Veggies are the answer” she proclaimed,
Police said they didn’t think so.
Now Elsie’s got those
Vegetarian Dead Cow Blues.
In court the judge heard her story,
But under oath Elsie did perjure.
Now she’s in prison, no squash souffle
All they’ve got are cold burgers.
Elsie’s still got those
Vegetarian Dead Cow Blues
Since Elsie got out of prison,
She’s singing a very different tune.
“Veggies in a pill are the answer
To eat them would be too cruel”.
Now Elsie’s kicked those
Vegetarian Dead Cow Blues
Song NotesA fun song, kind of a spoof on the mantra of vegetarianism. It started when I saw something on television about police arresting vegans for spray painting expensive fur coats at an upscale store. Everyone has their beast of burden I suppose.
