lyrics

I saw a squirrel kill himself
He drowned in my bath
A tiny furry tragedy
I didn’t mean to laugh

Some things are more or less like that:
Sad, funny, dumb and brave like that.
I don’t know why he had to die
I wonder who was saved.

I think the squirrel suicide
Took nerve and skill and guts
He planned it like a robbery
I don’t think he was nuts

Some things are more or less like that:
Sad, funny, dumb and brave like that.
I don’t know why he had to die
I wonder who was saved.
