Song Description

Wife gets disgusted with armadillo tearing up yard. Commands husband to kill creature. Husband kills creature, family buries armadillo and mourns its loss.

Story Behind the Song

Obviously, this is a true story. If you enjoyed it recorded, you should see it LIVE. Much more dramatic. Once people hear this song, they never forget it.

Broadjam Member Reviews

Very creative

    - Third Word

Very entertaining and unique piece. Backing vocals add a very nice touch. The intro serves as a very nice setup.

Lyrics

Armadillo

Late one night, it was after ten
The women watched while two tough men
ventured out in the middle of the night
to stalk......the creature.

They took a gun and acted brave
Mama's garden they must save
If they don't, she'll rant and rave
We gotta get......the creature.

Dad scanned the yard and fixed his eyes
on the enemy of our lives
with tiny eyes and pointed nose
sharpened claws and diggin' toes.
An armored back so smooth and round
finest specimen to be found
Why in heaven would a preacher
ever want to strike and kill.....the creature?

Armadillo, Armadillo
All you want are grubs and worms
Why couldn't we come to terms?
If you would've filled in all your holes
We might've let you live.
But no, you dug and fed your face
frustrating the human race
We want to have our pretty lawn
So armadillo must be gone.

Armadillo, Armadillo.
Dad raised his gun and aimed it shy
Hit that creature's underside
Armadillo, barely shot
He was scared; now watch him hop!
Up and down around a bit
He was getting hard to hit
Dad took aim and met his mark
Shot and killed him in the dark.

Armadillo, Armadillo
You used to be kind of cute
Now you lay there still and mute
Your diggin' days are over now
We're gonna put you in the ground.

Armadillo, Armadillo
Now you've taken your last breath
Yard destruction brought on death
You only did what you had to do
'Cause that's the way that God made you.
I'm sorry it had to end this way
Now I think I'll stop and pray
Lord I'm sorry we had to kill
Your finely-crafted Armadillo.
Armadillo, Armadillo, Armadillo.
