I wonder how you might like
onion soup from pickles.
But the pickles have onions
and my soup that I know.
I thought it might be evil,
so I smashed with a spoon
that lecherous badger
whose name I thought might’ve been Boone.

That badger how I hated
seeing him twitch and flail.
So I poked and I prodded him
with my really good pail.
So the badger has decided
to give up leering and
he decided that instead
he’ll be a good badger now.

And badgers they can be kind
but if you see one soon.
You should question his motives
as he leaves the room.
And badgers they’re not evil
just one that I do know.
For some badgers, like some people
are pretty evil, yo’.
