The Lyrics

Eddie worked the farm and thought he was cool,
never did anything that was taboo.
When it came to that, he was a taboo ’schew…
never left the gate open.

Likewise, he never left open the barn door
and always swept the horsesh*t offa the floor.
He did all these chores, and then he did some more.
The guy had no limits.

Eddie was always hopin’
for the best he could do.
And he was never gropin’
the boss’s daughter, named Sue.

Sh*t…left the gate wide open!
What is he gonna do?
Wow…left the gate wide open.
The devil will get his due.

The gate gape let all the animals depart;
leaving it open had not been really smart.
Out onto the freeway some creatures did dart.
A guy’s car then hit one.

The result of all of this was sweet road kill;
the thought of road kill can make many folks ill.
He threw the carcass into the trunk and rode till
he threw it in the oven.

Into the great wide oven
went the dismembered ewe.
Like a foodie who’s grubbin’,
he’d relish some hot ewe stew.
