I went for a walk with a cow,
And we had a lot of fun,
Strolling through the woods and lying in the sun.

We teased each other lots,
And she made me kinda laugh,
When I said, “Let’s go for lunch”,
And she offered me some grass.

We talked all day,
And shared a pot of tea,
I asked,
“When you get older, what do you wanna be?”

She said, “I know you think I’m stupid,
And you’re probably right.
In comparison to you, I’m not very bright.
I can’t drive a car or fix broken bones,
Shit, I couldn’t even binge watch Game of Thrones.

But, I am alive,
And I do get scared,
And when I got milked last night,
I kinda cared.

I just wanna change the world,
Change it for me,
I’m not asking for much,
I just want to be free.”

I went blackberry picking, with a chicken,
We wanted to make a crumble,
Add few apples, keep the recipe humble.

We started to chat,
About the warm summer sun,
She said, “Walking round here, this is my kinda fun.

But I don’t get out much,
I have to live in a cage,
Getting squished and squashed,
Until all my eggs are laid.

I just wanna change the world.
Change it for me.
I’m not asking for much,
I just want to be free.”

I went to a gig, with a pig,
Some old school rock’n’roll,
I wanted to know his dreams,
And his one big goal.

He said,
“I think I’ve just had enough,
Of living in a sty,
Getting all fattened up,
For someone to fry.

I’d like to eat mushrooms and fruits,
And join a little herd.
Settle down somewhere,
And maybe find myself a bird.

I just wanna change the world.
Change it for me.
I’m not asking for much,
I just want to be free.”


I went for dinner with a human,
And it didn’t take long to see,
Of the guys I met earlier,
I could order all three.

I said,
“Do you think it’s kinda weird,
Killing animals for food?
Doesn’t making them slaves,
Just seem kinda rude.”

He said,
“Don’t be daft,
Now I’m having the burger,
Coz it tastes fucking nice,
I don’t care if it’s murder.

This is just what we do.
Why should I try something new?
They’re not like us, they can’t think or talk,
They don’t have opposable thumbs or straight backs when they walk.

They’re stupid,
They’re dumb.

I don’t wanna change the world,
I wanna keep it the same for me,
I’m not asking for much,
They just shouldn’t be free.”
