Lyrics

(The Rhinoceros)

I was like gray granite.
I was born to be a giant swine with armored leather and two nose horns.
In pjonka va banda.

I ate fresh grass, water bamboo shoots and river mussels?

I charged at all of them like a locomotive.
They screamed to embarrass me
?look! the Savanah?s locomotive?
I killed them with a Pansar?s terror
With a Pansar?s dread.

I didn?t know what a locomotive was, but I understood I must be a locomotive.
A locomotive with pjonka va banda.
I charged at them with ptjom banna

There, where flamingos waved away the flies that piercingly visited my little eyes,
I charged at them with djam bva bamu
There, where the skull of an Oryx antelope had bored his cork-screw horn into the earth,
I charged at them with njamkan ganza
There, where mud swells up from the river like a spring.

I charged towards them with my entire leaden body, my solid armored obesity.
I took them by the forehead
Their screams collected like spit in my ears,
I took them by my nose?s root, an itchy-for-death ax,
Divided them with my sharp, shearing, heavy bite
Filled of fear for them, yes, filled of fear for them
In ptjom banna! with djam bvabamu! with njamkan ganza!
