Description
This is another tune from a one-act musical Ive just finished writing called Always The Lion. Roughly its about a girl who falls in love with a mysterious guy she meets while performing in The Wizard of Oz . She's Dorothy in the show and he plays the lion. They finally get together and she finds out that the guy is really a lion! She sings this song to her friend after her night with the lion. Check out Always The Lion for more from this show.

This tune features Shelia Addis and David Gold on vocals and Chad Bacho on drums.

Lyrics
It was... it was... horrible!
RIGHT FROM THE TIME THAT WE SAID HELLO
THINGS DIDN'T SEEM TO BE APROPOS
WHEN YOU HEAR THIS YOU'RE GONNA LAUGH
HE SERVED GIRAFFE
AND ATE MY HALF
RIGHT AFTER DINNER HE LICKED HIMSELF CLEAN
THEN IT HIT ME...

HE'S AN ANIMAL
AND THAT AIN'T NO FIGURE OF SPEECH
HE'S AN ANIMAL
IF I WERE YOU I'D STAY OUT OF HIS REACH
HE'S COVERED IN FUR
AND HIS MANE'S NOT A WIG
HIS EYES GLOW IN THE DARK
AND HIS TEETH ARE YEH BIG
HE'S AN ANIMAL
AND I'D ADVISE YOU TO STAY AWAY - FROM HIM!
My poor thing. Why didn't you call me as soon as you got home?
I left his place... this morning...
What?
HE PLAYED THE ROLE OF THE BIG BAD CAT
I TOLD HIM I'D HAVE NO PART OF THAT
I'M NOT HIS LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD
HE THOUGHT HE COULD
SAMPLE THE GOODS
I TOLD HIM I'M NOT THAT KIND OF GIRL BUT
IT WAS NO USE...

HE'S AN ANIMAL
AND I FELT LIKE A JUICY PORK CHOP
HE'S AN ANIMAL
OK, THERE WERE TIMES I YELLED, "LOUIE DON'T STOP!"
HE WALKED ON ALL FOURS
WITH A STALKING CAT STRUT
AND BEFORE I COULD MOVE
THAT JERK SNIFFED MY BUTT!
HE'S AN ANIMAL
AND I'D ADVISE YOU TO STAY AWAY - FROM HIM!
HE'S AN ANIMAL
AND THAT AIN'T NO FIGURE OF SPEECH
HE'S AN ANIMAL
IF WE WERE SMART WE'D STAY OUT OF HIS REACH
HE'S GOT A HUGH TAIL
AND A LOUD LION'S ROAR
AND WHAT OF HIS AH...
I CAN'T SAY ANYMORE
HE'S AN ANIMAL
AND I'D ADVISE YOU TO STAY AWAY - FROM HIM!

Imaginative Quirky Fun
I love it when people take figures of speech at the literal level. This is hilarious and human and bouncy and just a bunch of fun. Sounds like a great concept! Good luck with it!!!

Great wit and music
I really like this song. Especially the lyrics. Your singer is
great too (who is she?) You've combined wonderful wit
and very clever, catchy, fun yet dramatic music. Really
good track.

I wanna SEE this show!
GREAT song! I could almost see the action onstage by
listening to this tune. Excellent music accompanying
snappy lyrics. Your vocalist has a clear, expressive voice
and I especially appreciated her good diction! (I'm terrible
at not understanding lyrics, generally....)

Anyway, best of luck with your musical, if the other songs
are anything like this one, you've got a HIT!

Don't stop!
As a butt sniffer myself, I especially liked the one moment
of truth when she says, "Ok, there are times I yelled, 'Don't
Stop!'" and the part about the big tail. It's not easy being
an animal among beings who think they are gods
incarnate. Your song brings everybody back to earth with
great self-incriminating wit. Don't stop!

Truth
Ain't it the truth. An anthem for all women.
