I was a Wolfdeer
Molars where fangs should be
Got two paws and two hooves
I confused all the wolves
And the deer all just scoffed at me

I was a orphan
Not sure who my parents are
But did my dad just come
When he ate my mom?
That's foreplay gone too far

Oh I only eat by myself anymore
Because I'm the only omnivore
What did i do the deserve this
What did God do to me
Why are my friends just the things that I wanna eat

I was an misfit
Like if Rudolph was gay
But my nose didn't blink, my dick didn't stick
And I could never sashay

I was an outcast
But no one ever "Hey Ya"'d
The deer ran from my face and
The wolves all gave chase
They all thought that I was a fraud

Well I only hunt not in packs anymore
Friends don't like being snacks, that's for sure
If only I was a human
I could drown myself in beers
I should be an alpha, but Bambi still brings me to tears

I try to not wear sheeps' clothes anymore
I only kill now for food, not for sport
What did I do to deserve this?
What did God do to me?
I hate myself, because so does everybody
At least I can't even produce a baby
Srsly tho, will somebody euthanize me?
