lyrics

Well we were waitin’ out some white tail
in a stand on Boggy Creek
When from up the holler yonder
come a hauntin’ lonely shriek…

Then there fell a murky silence,
no squirrel, no bird, no wind...
And there rose a pungent odor
as a fog come rollin’ in…

I swear upon a Bible
stick a needle in my eye
Right then and there a Skunk Ape walked on by…

Well he was taller than a ceilin’
and he walked like you and me
He was muscular and hairy
but his face I couldn’t see…

Then he grunted like a monkey
and he howled a mournful moan
and it seemed like he was cryin’
cuz he knew he was alone…

I’ll swear upon the tombstone
of my dear sweet mother’s grave…

Me & Bill & Timmy saw a Skunk Ape there that day…

So if you hear a strange sound knockin’
and the trees are upside down
Best forget ‘bout what yer doin’
get yer ass back into town…

Lay down yer guns and cameras
and leave well enough alone
Have some damn respect
yer in the Skunk Ape’s home…

Well, it don’t matter what you call him
Sasquatch or ole Big Foot…
He’s just a dang old Skunk Ape
and he don’t smell too damn good…

He’s our long lost elder brother
so train yer sights real well.
Ifin’ ya kill a Skunk Ape
ya surely go to Hell…
