The Lyrics

A gazelle that was eaten by a cheetah sings his tale of woe to anyone who will listen.
Verse 1: Nibblin’ on grass roots
My herd’s on the loose
All of this wide plain’s open to graze
Off in the distance
Heard an existence
Smelled a risk that’s the end of my days

Chorus: Eaten as prey I am a former cheetah kill
Singing here from the plains up above
Some beasts have said
That it’s just nature’s food web
But I know I’m what cheetah’s love

Verse 2: My instincts treasoned
In the rain season
My tank was low so I stopped for a bite
And while I was rootin’
Got bit in the booty
Now I’m up here, quenched its appetite

Chorus: Was an entrée I am a former cheetah kill
Playing here with no grass roots to munch
Some beasts say this
It’s survival of fittest
Now I know why I was cheetah lunch

[Instrumental Break] (Played by an band of Former Cheetah Kills)

Verse 3: I dashed and I darted
And once I farted
Broke my heel tryna juke this cat out
But he caught and he chewed me
Evolution screwed me
A gazelle abduction that makes me just pout

Chorus: Watch me decay I am a former cheetah kill
You can find me inside cheetah’s gut
But here’s his strife
There’s a large circle of life
When he shows, gonna kick his butt

Outro: Yes and here is his strife
There’s a large circle of life
When he shows, gonna kick his butt

If nothing else, yours is the first "Spirit of A Dead Gazelle" parody topic ever produced by anyone!

Wow! Didn't realize my comment didn't post. Must have been a computer issue. Sorry about that man. But what I said earlier is that this is one of the most original songs I've read. I love your work because you're able to take the strangest topics and mold them like clay into a kick-ass parody. A ghost gazelle? Really? Awesome!

Now we need a follow-up from the cheetah's POV. Amazing how your mind came up with this title sub.

(Artistry) Wow, you took a really oddball topic and turned it into one of the most creative parodies I've ever read on this website. Fantastic stuff, 555!

Well that was a very unique idea Blayde, as one who regularly takes on strange, even surreal topics, I applaud you!
