The Lyrics

Certain mammals like foxes and minks are killed for their fur. As an animal lover, and especially mammal lover, this doesn't sit well with me. The parody lyrics reference the recently-discontinued PETA ad campaign, "I'd Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur". So in short, fur is better off staying on the non-human mammals it was originally on.
Fur, huh, yeah
I will not wear it
I'd rather go naked, uh-huh, uh-huh

Fur, huh, yeah
I will not wear it
I'd rather go naked, say it again, y'all

Fur, huh, good god
I will not wear it
I'd rather go naked, listen to me

Fur clothes, I despise
Cause it means destruction of animal lives
Fur means tears to animal lovers' eyes
When people go out and hunt to take a mink's life

I said fur, huh, good god y'all
I will not wear it
I'd rather go naked, say it again

Fur, huh, whoa-oh-whoa-oh, Lord
I will not wear it
I'd rather go naked, listen to me

Fur, It ain't nothing but animal abuse
Fur, it is something for which I have no use

Fur clothes, makes you enemies to all mankind
The thought of fur blows my mind
Fur clothes cause unrest upon certain generations
Fox hunting and mink farming, don't want them to die

Oh, fur, huh, good god, y'all
I will not wear it
I'd rather go naked, say it, say it, say it

Fur, huh, uh-huh, yeah, uh
I will not wear it
I'd rather go naked, listen to me

Fur, It ain't nothing but animal abuse
Fur, it is something for which I have no use

Fur clothes have made rich people my enemies
Killing animals, that is so mean
Life is much too short and precious for these animals today
Fur can't give life, it can only take it away

Oh, fur, huh, good god, y'all
I will not wear it
I'd rather go naked, say it again

Fur, huh, whoa-oh-whoa-oh, Lord
I will not wear it
I'd rather go naked, listen to me

Fur, It ain't nothing but animal abuse
Fur, it is something for which I have no use

Have you no understanding tell me
Of the animals' suffering
They say fur makes you look so important
But lord knows there's got to be a better way

Oh, fur, huh, good god, y'all
I will not wear it
You tell me, (naked) say it, say it, say it, say it

Fur, huh, good god, yeah, huh
I will not wear it
Stand up and shout it (naked)

Liked but gotta say that needed more changes in the chorus, and I would have made at least a near rhyme to the original "what is it good for". "What are they killed for?" would be an even stronger hypothetical question to back up your thesis.

I got a chinchilla and people that wear those coats make me angry!
