The Lyrics

That devilishly clever Old Man Ribber made me do this. OK, he didn't make me, but he motivated me.
They’ll take your pelt and do
Duds that look fine.
They might make a top hat of you
Post-expirin’,
Post YOUR expirin’.

Or maybe a mantle
A gal wraps around
Her shoulders or ankle
If she should be encamped on damp ground.

Perhaps a belt of you—
Furry and fine,
So fine.

They’ll trap you,
They’ll zap you,
They’ll skin you,.
Not tan you like a cow
Then folks will wear
You as finery. . .
No silk from sow—ear, e.g.

And then look swell will you,
Though you’ll have died.
