The Lyrics

Seconds before submitting this, I went to confirm the decade and found Jared had already done a similar parody; however ours was different enough that I decided to put it up anyway.... (and I thought I had such an original idea - sigh... :-)
Rhinos can violently kill
Tho' not terribly bright
Bestowed with tough hides most like leather
Got real guile, but bad eyesight

Well there's some Indian and some African
And their herds sport quite a fright
Nigh the side of Limpopo
Or the side
Of the Ganges wide they stay

Every nose has its horn
Just spiked ivory point backed with brawn
Such spiked ivory cornu could you far, far flong
Every nose has its horn
Just because

In Nippon it's a favorite prong
Slayin' 'em for medico
Aphrodisiac makes love aflame
for 'easy come and easy blow'
But the plunder of rhinos
Is a dearly bought prowess
'Cus if should hunt go awry somehow
And ya gonna get one blow you're now
A mess!

Every nose has its horn
Just spiked ivory point backed with brawn
Much spiked ivory cornu could you far, far flong
Every nose has its horn

Goin' single file now
On the still Zambesian Plain
On a brief Safari we soon squeal
'Cus the charge, that charge it maims

(thundering guitar solo)

Its stomping should have gave enough insight
Should've flown out the way
A set of boxing gloves
Will not ceratoth'rums daze
And now I hit the ground, my head's askew
Not like this when I met them at the zoo
In fear tick-birds jump ship and hide
'Cus you see this rhino's running rife
I'm stressed!

Every nose has its horn
Busted where you're tight, now you're torn
Just like one encounter finds you tad empronged
Every nose has its horn

Thanks Arwen! Jared, glad you took a look. I promise to catch yours sometime today. Now, who is that impersonating "I Wish I Was Bob Geldoff"? J.C, is that you? :-O

A rhino's nose is made of keratin, not ivory.
