Jim Dixon Animal Songs (109* d) Lyr Add: CHIPMUNK WITH A DEATH WISH 30 May 21

This was mentioned by JenEllen on 27 Dec 99. My transcription:

As performed on YouTube by Dan Maher.

1. I’m a rodent by the side contemplating my last ride.
Chipmunk with a death wish!
Who would guess that my desire is to be one with your tire?
Chipmunk with a death wish!
I need a driver with the nerve,
Who’ll hit the gas and will not swerve,
But with all these PC types,
I could be here all night.

CHORUS: I’m a chipmunk with a death wish,
A chipmunk with a death wish.
Chipmunk with a death, chipmunk with a death, with a death wish.

2. Those chickens are so snide standing on the other side.
Chipmunk with a death wish!
But they’re just full of talk; takes a chipmunk to jaywalk.
Chipmunk with a death wish!
Your car won’t show a dent,
No indication that I went.
If you want a souvenir,
You’d better hit a deer. CHORUS

BRIDGE: Wheels go round in my eyes.
So easy to be hypnotized.
Nietsche would not be surprised. CHORUS

3. My mom whom I adored was flattened by a Ford.
Chipmunk with a death wish!
My cousins in a bevy jumped a fifty-seven Chevy.
Chipmunk with a death wish!
Would you think I was a snob
If I waited for a Saab?
What a classic way to go,
Getting hit by a Peugeot! CHORUS

4. Better polish off the china at Billy’s road-kill diner.
Chipmunk with a death wish!
Who would think those little critters would make such tasty fritters?
Chipmunk with a death wish!
Bet you can’t wait to wrap your jaws
Around these chewy little paws,
A bed of pasta underneath.
Just spit out the teeth. CHORUS
