I was a young boy, mama said to me
The clever bird stays up in the tree
There's strength in numbers and it's cold alone
And you use both barrels if they sniff around our home

Nature is crimson in tooth and claw
They catch a scent, boy they will come all
Sister is sleeping and papa went away
I'm sorry but you have to be the man today

Three times he comes around tonight
Three times he’s going down
Three times they come around tonight
Three times they’re going down

Oh no,there goes the sun
Good God, this life is such a son of a gun
And the there's nowhere to run
You know this life is such a dirty rotten son of a gun

I hear a whisper, "Get away tonight
If you're gonna run boy, run for your life"
The wolf is howling outside of my door
Oh, he's gonna find out what this scatter gun is for
