The Slaughterman's Birthday
By Bernie Jones bernie.jones1@interbrew.co.uk

I saw the balloons on the slaughterhouse door
Red like the colour of the slaughterhouse floor
Someone's having a birthday and they'll eat some cake
What birthday wish will the animals make

Let's have a party
As we take some lives
Let's celebrate
Whilst we use our knives
Let's have some fun
As the young calf screams
We'll drown the noise out
...with laughter.

Happy birthday to you
BANG GOES THE GUN
Happy birthday to you
LET'S HAVE SOME FUN, FUN, FUN!
Happy birthday dear slaughterman!
The calf drops with a thud
Happy birthday to you
Now she's covered in blood

So let's have a party
As we take some lives
Let's celebrate
Whilst we use our knives
Let's have some fun
As the young calf screams
We'll drown the noise out
...with laughter

The absurdity of what I saw made me cry
To think that 'they' are laughing as the animals die
Cut down in their prime for us to eat
No birthdays for them, just a journey to 'meat'.

But, let's have a party
As we take some lives
Let's celebrate
Whilst we use our knives
Let's have some fun
As the young calf screams
We'll drown the noise out
...with laughter.

Inside those walls today they're having some fun
Celebrating someone's life as their bloody work is done
Many years he's worked taking life after life
...now let's celebrate his?

Yeah, let's have a party
As we take some lives
Let's celebrate
Whilst we use our knives
Let's have some fun
As the young calf screams
We'll drown the noise out
...with laughter.
