The Lyrics

I love gazelle and gnu,
They taste so fine.

To get 'em dropped, I have to shoot,
Then they're lyin'
On the plain, lyin',

Meaning they don't stand up
When I've gunned 'em down. . .
Stuff 'em in my Caddie,
The Escalade I drive around town.

I love gazelle and gnu,
On which I dine.

I love gnu,
I love gnu,
I love gnu,
I love gnu, tastes like cow,
But want my share
Of gazellery;
I frown on sow.

Or deer meat!
My lunch? Gazelle and gnu.
They taste so fine.

So did you find a Brand Gnu Key on the Highway Gazelle?

Since I'm not sufficiently familiar with the original song, -and thus unable to give you a proper mark for pacing- it would be downright EVIL if I'd vote for this. On an entirely different note, I'd like to put you through an ordeal: try to pronounce a 'g' for an 'n.' And make it sound natural. I bet that it will give you a 'glottal stop' feeling.
