Story Behind the Song

Sarcastically told from the view of Minneapolis Dentist Walter Palmer, who illegally trophy hunted an iconic protected Zimbabwean named Cecil and got away with it.


Some guys like a big TV, man cave far as the eye can see Some guys like a pickup truck, a trophy wife who loves to ____ Some guys dig their power tools, or drink too much and act like fools You take yours, I'll take mine, and what I want is a big dead lion
Got me an elephant, rhino too, enough stiff bodies to fill a zoo But I wake each morning, half insane, for the King of the Jungle with a long black mane Shoot him with an arrow, shoot him with my gun, shoot him with a cannon just for fun Run him over with my Rover while he's dyin', a million ways to bag that big dead lion
There's a bitch from PETA at my door, says don't trophy hunt no more But tell you what, before I'm through, I might just mount and stuff her too This ain't no little kitty cat, and I ain't up for no fireside chat You nature nannies get me fryin', standing in the way of my big dead lion
Now he's sprawled across my floor, don't need a carpet any more His head is still beneath my hand, worth every penny of my 50 grand My guide got busted in Zimbabwe, but I hightailed to the land of the free You take your chances, so don't be cryin', I got away with my big dead lion
