The Lyrics

You know, fare I enjoy ain't light.
Like to dine on game.
Take a gun, run outside,
Take a gnu and lug it inside (3x)

I chased wildebeests here,
Then killed a beast there.
But it was hell to haul
The thing inside.
Break off two horns; it's not so wide (2x)

Heavy body, awfully weighty,
Heavy body, which I'm weighing.
The net,
The net,
The net,
The net--high!

My kitchen island's getting warm,
Cooking flame is high.
Warm for braising,
Can't decide--
Bake that gnu in oven or fried? (3x)

Flame to sear?
Need to eat.
Braise or bake?
Shower with flour?
I make a breakthrough,
Me decide:
Bake that gnu, but slough off the hide,
Bake that gnu, in the oven wide,
Bake that gnu, first on just one side,
Bake that gnu on the other side.
Bake that gnu (4x)
Bake (9x)
