The Lyrics

The old idiom "Bull in a China Shop" brought to uncomfortable life... I think this bull needs to smoke a doobie, brother, to calm down...
That pest wrecks my cups when he barges in I frown
Knocking down fancy bowls
Now his horns are tipping down my glass display
Loudly, I have groaned
That cattle in my shop's a pain
Stoneware clouds and broken plates
Damn, critter makes me pout china broke (Makes me pout the china broke)
No-ooo-OOO-ooo China broke!

This huge creature makes me seizure
Busted porcelain
My mouth drops as hooves pound
Since my profits keep declinin'
You'll hear me whinin'
I'm so stunned when he's unbound

I'll pay since that farmer's insane
While I'm stuck clerkin' this place
He'll hear me shout, "My china broke!" (Hear me shout: "My china broke!")
No-ooo-OOO-ooo China broke!

Smashed all my clay when this beast is jumpin'
His craze is quite detrimental, dude
Trays perished since he's clumsy
They're all pulverized more
You'll no longer find some dishes to buy!

Can't shop in my mart in it's foreclosed state
Cattle has made me swear
Yokel raised a crooked massive beast

Shoved his snout and china broke (Shoved his snout and china broke)
No-ooo-OOO-ooo China broke!

Whew! for a second, I thought China was having some economical problems! but seriously, that "doobie, brother," pun in the opening was worth the 5s alone!

Kinda what Jonathan said because the title hints about China and economy - but then again a subject like that from Matthias' pen would have been an even bigger surprise than this bull... oh, wait... that didn't come out right! :-)
