Animal Farm

Leopard in his country house counting up his loot
Lizard on the hustings in his birthday suit
Fish is in the restaurant slippery as an eel
Snake is in the basement cooking up a deal
Bull is in the china shop, dogs have run amok
Tiger’s stolen all the cash, eagle’s passed the buck

You can run
but you can’t hide

Rat is on the make in a nightclub downtown
Horse in a bordello wiping off her frown
Rabbit in the spotlight, needle in his arm
Lion in a sports car, a gun his lucky charm
Pussy on the catwalk too strung up to ignore
Donkey with a wad of cash two asses on the floor

You can run
but you can’t hide

Lil red rooster huffs and puffs
Elephant’s in the room
Pigs are feeding from the trough
Monkeys sing their tune

Cockroach in a corporate suit powdering his nose
Hawk in a Bugatti hoping everybody knows
Ostrich in the courthouse, head buried in a brief
Parrot on the TV screen, pitbull for a chief
Swallow on the casting couch shoring up her fame
Spider on the world wide web where no-one knows his shame

You can run
but you can’t hide

You can run
but you can’t hide

You can run
but you can’t hide

Fun song, Matcham. Clever, nice variety (of animals).

Good vocal and well mixed.

EPIC! Such a well developed lyric, the imagery is amazing. Thank you for this really entertaining submission smile

Hi Matcham,

Nicely done! I'm a fan of the banjo!

Hey thanks everyone! Great to know the lyrics are entertaining. It is of course a lyric-driven song.

I've come across the ebook before Joe but, ahem, will flick through it again.

Great fun!
All the above seconded here on the lyrics... such a cool idea for a song. Your vocal fits the style really well.
Now I just need to decide which animal I`ve been today!

Matcham,

Some songs are more equal than others and this song of yours is excellent.
A great listen with some lovely imagery for the animals you chose.

A good fun listen
