A Bit of Don McLean's Opus

A long, long time ago
I can still remember how the squirrels used to make me cry
And I knew if I had my chance
That I could sew those squirrels pants
And maybe they'd be happy for a while

When January came, they shivered
They sat in snowdrifts and they quivered
I watched from my windows
And dreamed of tiny chinos

I can't remember if tried
To knit them socks or if inside
I knew those mini-mammals' pride
Would wait for gnaugahide


Man, what a great tune.

*grin* You sure that's Don McLean's Opus and not Berke Breathed's?

I'll be much more sympathetic toward squirrels in future. Perhaps despair about their attire is why the more fashion conscious squirrels throw themselves in front of cars...
Damn straight. Fashion despair is the number one cause of suicide in squirrels*.
