      some amusement for your Friday....

       

      Crossin' the highway late at night

      He shoulda looked left and he shoulda looked right

      He didn't see the sport utility car

      The 'dillo got nailed and there you are

       

      You got yer

      Dead 'dillo by the side there of the road

      Dead 'dillo by the side there of the road

      Dead 'dillo by the side there of the road

      Little feet pointin' to heaven

       

      It's been ripenin' some; my eyes squeeze closed

      Roll up yer window and hold yer nose

      You don't have to look and you don't have to see

      It'll still be a while before it's dillo jerky

       

      You got yer

      Dead 'dillo by the side there of the road

      Dead 'dillo by the side there of the road

      Dead 'dillo by the side there of the road

      Little feet pointin' to heaven

       

      Yeah, you got yer dead cat and you got yer dead dog

      On a moonlight night you got yer dead toad frog

      Got yer dead rabbit and yer dead raccoon

      All them blood and guts enough make you swoon

       

      You got yer dead skunk, raisin' a STINK

      You got yer dead roadrunner; well that makes one blink

      Got your dead squirrel, tail a wavin' in the wind

      But there ain't no sight like the leathery skin of a

       

      Dead 'dillo by the side there of the road

      Dead 'dillo by the side there of the road

      Dead 'dillo by the side there of the road

      Little feet pointin' to heaven

       

      Dillo versus car, he's out of luck

      He shoulda shimmied, he shoulda duck'd

      Instead he leapt straight up in the light

      And now you see that pitiful sight

      of a

      Dead 'dillo by the side there of the road

      Dead 'dillo by the side there of the road

      Dead 'dillo by the side there of the road

      Little feet pointin' to heaven

       

      Sometimes we ask ourselves: what is the natural habitat of an armadillo?

      And, unfortunately, the answer comes: by the side of the road, feet in the air.
