"What Fred Dreads"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Fred gets upset when hooligans steal his goat!
A horse is a horse, unless, of course,
It's a thoroughbred on a race course
The goat, of course, does calm the horse, but if stolen becomes Fred's dread!

Hooligans that steal that source affect the horse
Anxiety can make the horse much worse
Can throw a race wildly off course
Adding to Fred's dread

The goat's calming effect is best and drives anxiety away
The thoroughbred is happiest when the goat in stall does stay

A horse is a horse, unless, of course,
It's a thoroughbred on a race course
Buddy animals owners support

Don't "get his goat"

And add to Fred's dread!
This is where the term " getting one's goat" comes from.
